Medicine has always been a high-reward, high-stress occupation. But with the currently challenging healthcare climate, physicians are placed under even greater burdens. From mounting fears of malpractice suits, and financial concerns—including pressure to treat more patients and the need to adapt to technological advances—physicians are under more stress than ever.

We understand that many people suffering from addiction are often reluctant to seek help over the Holidays for a number of reasons, including a fear of how their family will react or the fact that the Holidays can be such an emotional and stressful time. The truth is there is no better time than now to get the treatment you need.

Addiction to marijuana is real and has been demonstrated in animals and readily observed in humans. Use can be associated with psychosis, depression, suicidality and premature death. The idea that marijuana can be used therapeutically to treat so called “serious drug addiction” is a peculiar and untested hypothesis which is counterintuitive, as so many opioid overdoses have marijuana in their blood and extensive histories of marijuana use. There is not a speck of scientific evidence to suggest that marijuana is a viable “Medically-Assisted Treatment” modality for opioid addiction.

With the recent revelation that one-third of the U.S. population suffers with chronic pain, this clearly demands better and more effective pain evaluation and treatment modalities, and should be taught alongside of continuing education for physicians on the use of opioids. The fear is that individuals whose self-efficacy and quality of life are enhanced by expert pain management, including the use of opioids, will be left wanting and suffering if we over reach in regulating the use of opioids for legitimate pain.

The best available scientific evidence germane to cannabis use and driving impairment sharply contrasts with public attitudes regarding driving under the influence of marijuana. Regular users often admit to driving under the influence of marijuana and erroneously believe that their driving performance is not affected, or that they have learned to compensate for the impairment. Consuming marijuana causes psychomotor impairment and substantial risk to drivers and others on the roads. The available data underscores the importance of developing policy and legislation based upon solid scientific evidence and not popular opinion.
