  1. to Ken ……………………is it better to be addicted to marijuana than an opioid?

    ……………………………yes………………………….marijuana is not physically addictive so there are no physical withdrawal symptoms like nausea , vomiting,  and stomach cramps……..…………….and marijuana is not just like alcohol because alcohol is physically addictive too……………………………once again marijuana is not…………………and marijuana can not kill a  human being but alcohol can through alcohol blood poisoning

  2. the question is can marijuana treat the SYMPTOMS in question……………………………these symptoms could be caused by many things other than opioid addiction………………………….. the list of withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid addiction is made up  of things that marijuana has been shown to be effective in treating……………………nausea , vomiting, stomach cramps, muscle aches, and high blood pressure have all been treated effectively with marijuana

  3. Yea really, how many people have died from FDA approved medicines,millons. FDA are the ones that started the opioid crises and were supposed to count on them?

  4. Just legalize it so people can medicate with this instead of alcohol. Marajuana doesn't kill people or cause an ungodly amount of vehicle accidents. It's a plant that just makes people happy, want to eat and then take a nap!

    I suffer from debilitating migraines, chronic neck and back issues as well as an anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder. Marajuana helps with all of my problems to where I don't need to have a pharmacy of pills to feel human now. I can power through all of my struggles with a couple of hits of the bong.

  5. I was addicted to oxy, typical day was snort 5-7 30 mg IRs because of several issues with my back. I got off the pills last year in June, I safely did by myself and using copious amounts of cannabis I got through detox and withdrawals easily enough and keeping up the copious amounts of cannabis I was able to get used to the pain. I decreased my cannabis intake a few months afterward and now I'm able to get by with having a joint a couple times a week to help with my more taxing home chores, I do not work because of a pinched nerve that acts up often.
