Off licences, fast food restaurants and abandoned buildings line Gratiot Street in north-east Detroit where the cannabis dispensary 420 Dank stands.

The store is not owner Kim Gaetano's first foray into the medical marijuana business. The mother of two ran legal marijuana shops in Colorado and Washington before moving to Detroit to be closer to family.

Her shop sells cannabis flowers as well as edible products and has a 24-hour drive-through for patients who find it difficult to get out of their cars, especially in the harsh Michigan winter.

The long-term, daily use of cannabis is associated with improved analgesia and reduced opioid use in patients with treatment-resistant chronic pain conditions, according to clinical trial data reported online ahead of print in The Clinical Journal of Pain.

Investigators with Hebrew University in Israel evaluated the use of cannabis on pain in a cohort of 176 patients, each of whom had been previously unresponsive to all conventional pain medications. Subjects inhaled THC-dominant cannabis daily (up to 20 grams per month) for a period of at least six months.

A majority of participants (66 percent) experienced improvement in their pain symptom scores after cannabis therapy, and most reported “robust” improvements in their quality of life. Subjects’ overall consumption of opioid drugs declined 44 percent by the end of the trial, and a significant percentage of participants discontinued opioid therapy altogether over the course of the study.

Louisiana is known for having some of the most cutthroat penalties against marijuana possession in the United States, but this bad reputation could become a legend of the past if lawmakers can miraculously convince legislative forces that legal weed is the right channel for which to satisfy the state’s budget woes.

Reports indicate that the Louisiana Legislature may be preparing to dive head first into a new proposal later this session aimed at dragging the state out of the trenches of prohibition to establish a fully legal cannabis trade.

Earlier this week, the appropriations committee put their stamp of approval on several bills intended to trim some of the fat from the underbelly of the state’s disastrous $850 million budget deficit, but lawmakers are concerned that a political tug-of-war between the Republican-dominated legislature and the Governor’s office over how to solve the state’s financial crisis will not result in any measurable reconciliation.
