Increased Access to Cannabis May Reduce Opioid Prescriptions.

Increased Access to Cannabis May Reduce Opioid Prescriptions.

Since 2013, the rate of deaths caused by drug overdoses in the U.S. has been rising, with the largest increase being in opioid drug-related deaths.[i] In 2017 alone, 47,600 drug overdose-related deaths involved opioids, a staggering 67.8% of the total overdose deaths reported that year, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that 130 Americans die daily due to opioid overdose.[ii]
 
As the opioid epidemic worsens, health officials and some lawmakers have turned to cannabis as a possible solution to reducing the opioid crisis.
 
 
Cannabis as an Alternative for Pain Relief
 
One of the most well-researched benefits of cannabis is pain relief. A report published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine concluded, “[T]here is substantial evidence that cannabis is an effective treatment for chronic pain in adults,” and those findings aren’t new.[iii]
 
Medical cannabis is superior to opioids when used for chronic pain, has minimal adverse effects compared to opioids, and boasts additional positive effects on ailments such as post-traumatic stress and cancer.[iv],[v],[vi]
 
Given these benefits, it’s not surprising that health officials have wondered if cannabis and its pain-relieving effects could be the solution to the opioid epidemic.[vii],[viii] A report published by the Journal of Health Economics found that medicinal marijuana access laws reduced morphine milligrams prescribed each year by 4.2%.
 
The same study reported that similar laws for recreational cannabis reduced opioid prescriptions by 11.8% each year.[ix] Additionally, in states that have legalized cannabis use, cannabis has been linked with a reduction in other controlled substances, such as benzodiazepines (anti-anxiety drugs), over-the-counter sleep aids and other prescription drugs.[x],[xi],[xii]
 
Skeptics may wonder why policies to reduce opioid prescriptions aren’t a better alternative, but simply reducing access to opioids — such as through drug monitoring programs — doesn’t seem to work. Instead, opioid users may turn to more dangerous drugs with similar chemical structures and physiological impacts, like heroin, which are low cost and highly available.[xiii],[xiv]
 
However, researchers have discovered that increased access to cannabis allows opioid users to use cannabis for pain relief, seemingly without any significant increases in heroin or other illicit drug use.
 
 
Additional Medical Benefits of Cannabis
 
Beyond its potent pain-relieving capabilities, marijuana has been positively linked to the following conditions:
Epilepsy: Cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic extract of cannabis, has anti-seizure, neuroprotective and antidepressant effects. Multiple studies have found that cannabidiol is as effective as common anti-epileptic drugs, and may be a safer alternative especially in the treatment of epileptic infants, children and teenagers or drug-resistant epileptic patients.[xv],[xvi]
Inflammation: Cannabinoids have been shown to reduce inflammation and help regulate the immune system, making cannabinoid a possible treatment for chronic and acute inflammation.[xvii],[xviii]
Multiple sclerosis (MS): A growing body of evidence has shown that cannabis and its compounds could effectively reduce symptoms of multiple sclerosis, other neurologic disorders and spinal cord related injuries.[xix],[xx] In addition to mitigating symptoms, some studies have indicated that cannabis could reduce the progression of MS.[xxi]
 
Given the positive effects, safety profile and low risk of addiction, cannabis remains a strong candidate in the continuing fight against opioid overuse and addiction.

WHISTLE BLOWN: The Source of The Opioid Epidemic In The USA ~ anonymous

WHISTLE BLOWN: The Source of The Opioid Epidemic In The USA.

By anonymous.

The hospitals of New Hampshire are responsible for the sole called “opioid epidemic”. They receive shipments of heroine and fentanyl from the military and selling it illegally to street dealers in order to fund secret underground projects such as the SSP(Secret Space Program) and ICC. The heroine and fentanyl come straight from China via boat to Alaskan U.S military bases. From there they are shipped across Canada to the north New Hampshire border.
Military personnel are allowed easily across the Canadian border and are not stopped or questioned from Canadian police because they are marked military vehicles. The Canadian/U.S border is not heavily watched or protected as well making the shipments smooth and easy. From there, they proceed to northern New Hampshire military bases such as the one in Littleton, NH. At the base, the drugs are loaded into inconspicuous trucks and then shipped to hospitals such as Dartmouth Hitchcock, Nashua, NH or Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, NH. These sleezeball hospitals are fronts for the illegal drugs trade and are filled with malpractice in order to get extra money from the government via unpaid, uncalled for, ridiculously unnecessary hospital bills.
They will intentionally make you sick to get all the money they can from you. Aside from that, they sell the drugs to dealers in order to get the drugs out on the street and into the arms of the sheep, revolutionaries that would present a problem to the deep states control. Since the state and local police are in on this scheme; the street dealer, after being sold the drugs, is carefully watched along with every deal they make. When the time is right, they are caught and snatched up by the police and sent to federal prison where they will live out the rest of their days, and where no one will listen to their story of how the government and hospitals played them like a god damn fiddle.
The drugs are seized and ready to be sold out to the highest bidder yet again. Thus, the cycle continues. The worst part is that the FBI is completely aware, and in on this devious plot because they need that drug money to fund their little secret projects that must be left out of the public eye. Look up State of Corruption New Hampshire if you don’t believe me. They sent a hit man to murder him because he’s tries to disclose this sick plan.
The money that doesn’t go to the SSP, ends up in the pockets of the governor, politician’s, and those involved to keep them quiet and compliant, obviously. All the while, destroying new Hampshire families and their funds. Almost every single home in this corrupt state is in all actuality, owned by the banks and every single family is in their debt and also owned by these fuckers. The cost of living is impossible to actually live on. Small businesses are kept to almost nothing or also in debt to the bankers. The level of mind control, especially up north is gross. It’s perfect to keep their shit a secret, no prying eyes.
That’s why I’m sending this… I need those prying eyes. I need evidence to take these fuckers down for good. They NEED to be EXPOSED. FOR GOOD. If you can help catch these people, I need pictures. Times of shipments, videos of the shipments. I need first hand witnesses. Anything that can end the needless destruction of the New Hampshire people. The innocents don’t deserve this. I’m sure we all have seen people get their lives ended by heroine and fentanyl use.
Love and peace…

Big Pharma bust: Largest opioid arrest in U.S. history ensnares dozens of physicians, pharmacists who created addicts ~ JD Heyes.

Big Pharma bust: 

Largest opioid arrest in U.S. history ensnares dozens of physicians, pharmacists who created addicts.

In yet another sign that our healthcare system is fraught with problems that Democrats have made worse and not enough Republicans see fit to address, federal prosecutors have charged dozens of pharmacists and doctors in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Alabama for illegally distributing opioids — even as an opioid epidemic sweeps the country.
According to the  Cincinnati Inquirer, prosecutors have charged 60 pharmacists and physicians of “trading drugs for sex, giving prescriptions to Facebook friends without proper medical exams, and unnecessarily pulling teeth to justify writing pain pill prescriptions.”
Most of the medical professionals named by prosecutors are being charged with “unlawful distribution of controlled substances involving prescription opioids.”
As further noted by Breitbart News:
And while prosecutors say the methods employed were many and varied, all resulted in the distribution of 32 million opioid pills — by way of over 350,000 improper prescriptions — to addicts.
“If so-called medical professionals are going to behave like drug dealers, we’re going to treat them like drug dealers,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski. 
The arrests followed a lengthy investigation by the Appalachian Regional Prescription Strike Force, which is comprised of some 300 investigators and law enforcement personnel from the five states where arrests were made. 
However, the busts won’t bring much relief to the addicted patients who were essentially strung out on the highly lethal painkillers. Still, per Benjamin Glassman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, one of the duties of the task force is to get help for those who are addicted to opioids and are suffering because of it.
According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “drug overdoses have dramatically increased over the last two decades, with deaths increasing more than four times between 1999 and 2017.”

The arrests took place in the biggest havens for opioid abuse and ODs

Some 70,000 Americans died in 2017 alone from drug overdoses, which made them the leading cause of injury-related death in the U.S. Of those, 68 percent involved an illicit opioid or one given by prescription. “Adults between the ages of 25 and 54 years old have the highest rates of opioid overdose deaths,” the CDC said.
Further, the National Institute on Drug Abuse notes that roughly 130 Americans per day die as a result of opioid OD, and that the epidemic is costing taxpayers and private insurers in excess of $78 billion per year. (Related: FDA approves portable device to reverse opioid overdose, can be used by family members and caregivers.)
Congress and the Trump administration are working to curb opioid OD deaths, the CDC noted:
In FY 2019, CDC received $475 million for opioid overdose prevention and surveillance activities with the majority of these funds supporting state-based prevention efforts.
As for the Appalachia strike force, Glassman said that “when these facilities are taken down, there are resources in place to give the best possible chance for those victims to get proper treatment.
“Opioids are the public health and safety crisis of our lifetime. This innovation, I hope, will be a road map for the future,” he added.
What makes these arrests more compelling — and horrific at the same time — is that the opioid epidemic is worse in the Appalachian region. According to the American Addition Centers, citing CDC statistics, four of the five states involved in the bust are among the 10 ten states with the highest number of opioid overdoses (in order): West Virginia (1); Kentucky (3); Ohio (4); and Tennessee (10). Alabama. According to a CDC data map, opioid overdoses rose 11.1 percent between 2016-17 in these areas, and are listed as “statistically significant” in terms of overall deaths.
“States with statistically significant increases in drug overdose death rates from 2016 to 2017 included Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin,” the CDC said.
