Many Americans use Cannabis for Chronic Pain Because it is Better than Opioids

CANNABIS FOR CHRONIC PAIN

Currently, 1/3 America suffers from chronic pain, defined as pain that lasts longer than 12 weeks. It commonly coincides alongside secondary symptoms and conditions, from trouble sleeping to a weakened immune system to anxiety and depression. The problem with chronic pain and other health conditions, however, is that many people turn to opioid prescriptions, the reality of which is quite dangerous. Medical marijuana, on the other hand, is a viable alternative to opioids, which you will see in the infographic below.

Apollo Cannabis Clinic aims to offer safe and effective treatment for chronic pain and a variety of other conditions such as PTSD and anxiety via medicinal marijuana. The largest study on cannabis to date found that medical cannabis is effective at relieving not only chronic pain, but also a variety of other conditions, from muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis to nausea associated with chemotherapy. Not only is it effective, but it is also highly safe, especially in comparison to opioids. In 2015, 15,000 or more deaths in the United States were the result of opioid overdoses alone – marijuana, on the other hand, caused zero deaths. This is because while it is virtually impossible to overdose on marijuana, the same is not true for opioids.

Before he wandered off, Carson suggested that the federal government should take a “holistic” approach to housing in Indian Country and ensure that “low- and middle-income Native American families can enjoy comfortable housing just like everyone else.”

In his remarks about economic growth, Carson heaped praise on Trump for having added more than one million jobs since he landed in the White House.

However, this fact is absolutely untrue.

Senator Named to Marijuana Regulatory Post Opposed Legal Pot

Category: News | Posted on Sat, August, 26th 2017 by THCFinder

BOSTON (AP) — A Democratic state senator who opposed the ballot question that legalized recreational marijuana was named Wednesday by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker to the regulatory board that will oversee the cannabis industry in Massachusetts.

Sen. Jennifer Flanagan, of Leominster, is the first appointee to the five-member Cannabis Control Commission. She will serve as an associate commissioner beginning on Sept. 1 after resigning from her Senate seat at the end of the month.

The governor, in a statement, touted Flanagan’s experience in the Legislature on issues involving substance abuse prevention, treatment and recovery as invaluable to the state’s goal of “effective, responsible and safe implementation of the adult use of marijuana.”

Flanagan played a key role in crafting a 2016 state law that offered several new approaches to stemming the deadly opioid addiction crisis. She opposed the marijuana initiative on the November ballot, citing concerns over unknown or unanswered questions about what legalization might mean to Massachusetts.
