Vicki Hull: We need governor who will legalize cannabis

Vicki Hull: We need governor who will legalize cannabis

That's about 39 fewer prescriptions per 1,000 people using Medicaid. He says cannabis users deserve somewhere public where they can gather to smoke, vape or eat the drug.

Media reports say State Treasurer John Perdue will release a request for information in search of banking solutions for sales, fees, licenses, taxes and other transactions related to medical cannabis. Forty percent support allowing marijuana use for any reason.

The two studies were published online April 2 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

Several commissioners said there was no compelling data that would show marijuana stores were more harmful to such places than alcohol or tobacco. Prescriptions were different compared to states that had medical marijuana laws and those without them.

This week, Chris Masey, vice chair for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission's Policy Council for Children and Families, said Texas should make more patients eligible for inclusion in the state's medical marijuana registry.

According to studies, legal marijuana could help curb America's opioid epidemic. This may be surprising to those who think of the Baby Boom generation-who are now in their mid-50s to early 70s-as embracing marijuana use in their youth in the 1960s and 1970s.

The weight of that evidence is "now hard to ignore", said Bradford, who said he thinks federal regulations should be changed to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for pain treatment.

When it came to controlling dosages for pain relief, though, prescription pain medicine won out: 41 percent thought it would be easier to control dosage with medication. In the first study, which assessed cannabis use among the elderly, investigators reported that over 18 percent of the study's participants "stopped using opioid analgesics or reduced their dose".

"It's just not something that's going to be a public safety issue whatsoever", he said. Marijuana use, particularly long-term use, has been associated with impaired memory, decision making, and ability to perform complex tasks.

According to a JAMA Internal Medicine study released this week, when a state legalized medical marijuana, opioid prescriptions fell by more than two million daily doses a year, and those prescriptions decreased even more - by almost four million daily doses per year when medical cannabis dispensaries opened.

The studies couldn't prove cause and effect. The new poll results indicate an appetite for further government-sponsored research, including government-standardized dosing.

Only one in five poll respondents said their primary health care provider had asked whether they use marijuana.

Pot can relieve chronic pain in adults, so advocates for liberalizing marijuana laws have proposed it as a lower-risk alternative to opioids.
