People Will Die From Cannabis Dispensary Raids

Two major studies in the US have found that the states which have cannabis dispensaries have much lower rates of opioid use and deaths.

When people have easy access to a safer pain-reliever, cannabis, they are less likely to use the more risky one, opioids.
