The government claims to fight the War on Drugs in the name of our health and safety, yet they’re complicit in a rising addiction to opioid pharmaceuticals that killed more Americans in 2008 than have died in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the World Trade Center combined. Meanwhile, the Drug War they are fighting prevents us from applying the cure to this painkiller problem, since we have scientific evidence that cannabis works synergistically with opioids to deliver better pain relief with less pills, we have surveys showing medical marijuana patients are able to reduce their use of painkillers, cannabis has been shown to be a superior remedy for neuropathic pain, and doctors are now suggesting cannabis therapies for pain before opioid therapies because of cannabis’ non-toxicity and low risk of side effects.
