How Legal Cannabis Is Saving Lives in Colorado

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Thu, October, 19th 2017 by THCFinder

New research published in the American Journal of Public Health says legal cannabis is saving lives in Colorado. How exactly is weed saving lives in the state?

Recreational Cannabis Impacts Opioid Mortality Rate

Researchers examined the association between Colorado’s legalization of recreational cannabis use and opioid-related mortality.

Using data from the years 2000-2015, the authors of the study found a decrease in opioid-related deaths in the two years following Colorado’s legalization.

Although the cultivation and possession of hashish were illegal, Greek citizens continued to use it. Particularly after the first World War.
