The drug, which is legal for medical use in the majority of US states, is mainly prescribed to ease pain. But this new research conducted in Colorado - which was the first state to legalize - suggests that short-term pain relief could weaken the body's resilience to pain over time. The researchers, from the Swedish Medical Center, Colorado, analyzed around 260 people who were involved in minor vehicle accidents and admitted to trauma centers. Of these, 54 tested positive for recent marijuana use while 16 claimed they used the drug more or less every day.

Its just dope. It is illegal as hell. It needs prosecution!!
Well then by all means ban it and put everyone who uses it in prison.
That will surely stop this behavior in human beings!
When taking narcotics after a surgery marijuana relieved the feeling nauseated
Interesting. Impact on dopamine receptors?
maybe you could pause smoking weed for a few minutes while you post so your sentences make more sense...
In b4 the church ladies blaming demons.
Hmmm, all those millions of people enjoying pain relief from non-opioids are costing big pharma billions by now.
Reads like prohibitionist BS to me. I know the dozens of people I’ve met as a legal patient here in Florida sure appreciate being off the opioids.
A public service announcement brought to you by:
1.) congress members who own large holdings in big pharma.
2.) big pharma.
3.) Wall Streeters who facilitate public sector pensions (read: they need the arrests/fines).
There may be other uses as well, but have doctors ever really recommended it as a painkiller?
I don’t believe it. Small study, minor differences.

It has no bearing on the benefits of cannabis used against pain.
I don’t have a dog in this fight....but it seems there are good and bad to this.
There is a former LE in this area who is fighting for legalization of the oil. His child has seizures and it has helped a great deal.
oh wait I don’t smoke I use tincture
Further explains why mj is the gateway drug.
It means that while he was taking opioid pain killers after surgery, smoking weed relieved the nausea caused by the opioids.
What he said makes perfect sense to me, I expect you just wanted to get in a dig at him for whatever reason.
is cherry church lady?
So, give them a joint with the opioids.
Then after 5 days, eliminate the opioids. Register them in a database that precludes them getting opioids for a full year thereafter.
They, and society, would be FAR better off for it.
