    @ open minded

    The article didn’t say anything about whether opioids or marijuana are good or not. Opioids are being properly used and relieving pain in the vast majority of cases. They are needed. It’s the abuse that’s the problem.

    The hypocrisy (defined as : the practice of claiming to have higher standards or more noble beliefs than is the case.) is the belief that marijuana will be the answer to all of the opioid problems as regards to pain management. It will not.
    Post op and intra op pain and most chronic pain cannot be addressed by marijuana.
    Again it’s the abuse that’s the problem.

    Opioids = Good
    Medical Marijuana = Bad

    See the hypocracy?
