End Pain, Not Lives
Americans for Safe Access and the U.S. Pain Foundation launched the End Pain Not Lives campaign on November 1, 2017, to address the root of the opioid epidemic in the United States.
The epidemic is claiming over 130 lives a day.
Current public health policies focus solely on downstream strategies and criminalizing patients and medical professionals. Yet the research shows a nearly 25% decrease of opioid overdose deaths in states with medical cannabis laws. However, medical cannabis is not option for all patients due to the federal-state legal conflict, inadequacies in state laws, and lack of medical professional and patient education.
