National Medical Cannabis Unity Conference 2018
The Opioid Epidemic in the US is claiming 91 American lives a day. Current policies focus on downstream strategies and criminalizing patients and medical professionals. 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.
It is critical that our nation's lawmakers understand and respond to medical cannabis’ potential role in mediating this crisis through our END PAIN NOT LIVES campaign.
