Legalizing Recreational Marijuana in Colorado Reversed a 14-Year Trend of Rising Opioid-Related Deaths

At the heart of the marijuana debate is one question: Can weed actually provide health benefits that outweigh its risks? According to a recently published study in the American Journal of Public Health, the case that it can has been made sufficiently stronger.

The recently published study from researchers at the University of North Texas and University of Florida examined the impact of recreational cannabis' legalization in Colorado, which began selling the drug for adult use in Jan. 2014, as compared to opioid-related deaths. Opioids are a class of prescription medicines typically administered to treat various types of chronic and severe pain. They can also be a highly addictive medication that, in 2015, led to 20,101 related prescription deaths, according to the American Society of Addiction Medicine.

This Is How Legal Cannabis Is Improving Public Health

Legal cannabis access is associated with numerous favorable public health outcomes. Here are just a few of them.

Changes in the legal status of cannabis is associated with significant reductions in opioid-related mortality. Data published in 2014 in JAMA Internal Medicine reports that medical cannabis regulation is associated with year-over-year declines in overall opioid-related mortality, including heroin overdose deaths. Specifically, medicalization states experienced a 20 percent decrease in opioid deaths as compared to non-medicalized states within one year. This decrease climbed to 33 percent by year six. Other studies have separately linked the establishment of both dispensaries and adult use retailers with reductions in opioid deaths. Traffic fatalities involving opioid-positive drivers has also fallen in states that have implemented medical marijuana laws.

VIA REDDIT: Update from someone who lives on the strip in Vegas

You still can’t drive past Mandalay Bay or even get close.

The casinos are now checking bags & some have metal detectors etc.

Every single person I have talked to 100% thinks there was more than one shooter.

When it happened I was across the street not directly in the concert area but a guy running for his life came up to us saying his friend got shot in the face and that there were at least three shooters and they were snipers. He specifically told us that there were two on the roof and and maybe on the ground. (I understand he was in shock and maybe could have made some of this up or thought he saw more than he did but still something to consider)
