If 66% of medical marijuana patients use it as an alternative to pharmaceuticals, shouldn’t everyone have the right to choose pot over pills?
With pharmaceutical overdoses on the rise, the public is in dire need of an alternative that is both effective and less harmful to the body. If cannabis can replace many opioid painkillers and other potentially life-threatening pharmaceuticals, then shouldn’t these patients have the consumer power to choose pot over pills?
One of the biggest benefits of medical marijuana over pharmaceuticals is the lack of serious side effects. As shown in the video, pharmaceuticals have side effects that have the potential to kill people within days, while marijuana has yet to receive its first documented death.
“I was presceribed Zoloft, Vicodin, muscle relaxers, when really I could have just lit up a joint and went along my day and felt a lot better.” – Delaney Mason, medical marijuana patient and activist
