Opioid painkiller prescriptions have jumped 300 percent in the last decade, and they are now the most commonly prescribed drugs on the market. They are also the most dangerous and addictive drugs on the market, and often lose effectiveness with long-term use.
Now a new study conducted by researchers at The University of New Mexico, involving medical cannabis and prescription opioid use among chronic pain patients, found a distinct connection between having the ability to use cannabis and significant reductions in opioid use.
There is an abundance of evidence that the suppression of medical marijuana is one of the greatest failures of a free society, journalistic and scientific integrity as well as our fundamental values. There is no plant on Earth more condemned than cannabis, yet it has the potential to heal dozens of diseases and curb our rampant use of prescription opioids. Some studies have suggested that marijuana may even have a place in curbing the opioid epidemic.
The study, titled “Associations between Medical Cannabis and Prescription Opioid Use in Chronic Pain Patients: A Preliminary Cohort Study” and published in the open access journal PLOS ONE, was conducted by Dr. Jacob Miguel Vigil, associate professor, Department of Psychology and Dr. Sarah See Stith, assistant professor, Department of Economics. The results from this preliminary study showed a strong correlation between enrollment in the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program (MCP) and cessation or reduction of opioid use, and that whole, natural Cannabis sativa and extracts made from the plant may serve as an alternative to opioid-based medications for treating chronic pain.
