A few years ago the notion that cannabis could be an exit drug—a tool to help people overcome opioid addiction—was considered fairly radical. Now it’s becoming more widely accepted, thanks to more research and the stories of experience shared by those doing the daily work of recovery.

Colorado hospitals are launching a program to reduce opioid addiction!
“It’s more of a leap than a step, and that is new.”
Most people who become addicted to opioids start by using prescription pills.
“We’ve had grandmothers. We’ve had high schoolers. It runs the whole gamut of life. I don’t think anyone’s immune from it.”
One heroin overdose was a 21 year old college student whose addiction was traced back to a sprained ankle!
Guess what plant naturally treats pain?
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine released a comprehensive cannabis study in January indicating there was evidence to suggest cannabis could be used to treat chronic pain in adults.

“Some laboratories are looking at pain in general, but it’s more chronic pain oriented,” Hutchison said.
“It would make things a lot faster and a lot easier if it was rescheduled.”

For the first time in Florida State's history, a jury has found a man "not guilty" for growing medical Cannabis.

Could this be the beginning of the end for Cannabis prohibition?

Alcohol prohibition ended when they could no longer get a jury to convict people.

Decades of harm are about to come to an end!
