One striking chart shows why pharma companies are fighting legal marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

There's a body of research showing that painkiller abuse and overdose are lower in states with medical marijuana laws. These studies have generally assumed that when medical marijuana is available, pain patients are increasingly choosing pot over powerful and deadly prescription narcotics. But that's always been just an assumption.

Now a new study, released in the journal Health Affairs, validates these findings by providing clear evidence of a missing link in the causal chain running from medical marijuana to falling overdoses. Ashley and W. David Bradford, a daughter-father pair of researchers at the University of Georgia, scoured the database of all prescription drugs paid for under Medicare Part D from 2010 to 2013.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has officially decided that the party will not support medical marijuana or ending the drug war as part of it official 2016 campaign platform. But it plans to get behind some rather ridiculous ideals ranging from Trump’s wall dividing the United States and Mexico to declaring pornography a “public health crisis.”
