President Trump: Medical cannabis will help end the opioid epidemic

Medical cannabis has been proven to lower the amount of opioids patients need to find relief from severe, chronic pain.

The Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis must include cannabis science in their recommendations.

Why is this important?

91 people a day die from opioids in this country. We can do something to stop this epidemic if we ensure that medical cannabis is part of a comprehensive pain management strategy. The Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis must include expanding access to medical cannabis in their recommendations.
