Medical Cannabis and Traditional Prescription Medications
What Is Cannabis?
Currently, more than 115 Americans die every single day from opioid overdose. This includes prescription pills and illegal opioids like heroin, morphine, and others. The epidemic stems from a vastly abused system of prescription drugs that doctors loosely prescribe for minor issues such as pain and sleep. According to medical professionals, 21%-29% of patients with prescription pills abuse them, and 80% of people who use heroin first misused and abused prescription pills. Marijuana has been used by millions of people all around the world as an alternative to many prescription pills, especially for conditions involving pain, anxiety, nausea, and insomnia.
