Another Reason for Legal Medical Marijuana

Strangely enough, it's also one of the main reasons the Powers That Be are desperately fighting to keep medical marijuana illegal.

Patients who use marijuana for medicinal purposes are less likely to become addicted to pharmaceutical painkillers.  Talk about a win win.  Isn't this great?  Who could possibly be against it?

In 2010, the states where medical marijuana was legal had about 1,700 fewer deaths from painkiller overdoses than they would have had if medical pot was still illegal.  According to the study led by Dr. Marcus Bachhuber:

“We found there was about a 25% lower rate of prescription painkiller overdose deaths on average after implementation of a medical marijuana law.”

Heaven forbid that anyone should have medication that they can grow and administer themselves. Where is the profit in that?

Life: Yup, it's far better to be strong and suffer from an excruciating illness than to be weak and desecrate God's temple with marijuana. It says so in the Bible.

Jerry: That's right, tell those parasites they can either pay the drug companies thousands of dollars a month for painkillers, or they can suffer as God intended.
