I recently read a local whitepaper that has left me dumbfounded. There are state like Massachusetts, where addiction clinics are curbing opioid addiction with medical marijuana at a success rate of 75%!1 I haven't done a ton of research, but I believe that rate is higher than any other treatment method. Not to mention, marijuana is safer than treatment drugs like methadone. It just seems so obvious to me that marijuana is the best treatment drug available to help opioid pain relief users end their addiction. I started this thread in the hopes to gather some opinions. Why hasn't anyone pushed harder to utilize medical marijuana for this purpose nationwide?

I totally agree with you. A marijuana treatment is way more effective than the regular drugs, because as you mentioned, it is safer. I have a friend that is alcohol addicted and I feel awful when I see how he is ruining his life. He is just so young, but he can’t stand to parties. Every weekend he is drunk and can’t control himself. I tried to help him, but I understand that there are a lot of people in the same situation that he is. You may see here the statistics of addicted people fherehab.com/addiction-statistics/. The numbers shocked me.
