A new study from the UK is out. Normally, that’s hardly interesting. But when it involves findings suggesting that areas with legal cannabis dispensaries see fewer opioid deaths, it’s worth paying attention to.
“Higher medical and recreational storefront dispensary counts are associated with reduced opioid related death rates, particularly deaths associated with synthetic opioids such as fentanyl,” the paper, published on Wednesday in the British Medical Association journal’s BMJ, concluded, as covered by Marijuana Moment.
“Researchers looked at opioid mortality and cannabis dispensary prevalence in 23 U.S.states from 2014 to 2018 and found that, overall, counties where the number of legal marijuana shops increased from one to two experienced a 17 percent reduction in opioid-related fatalities.
Increasing the dispensary count from two to three was linked to an additional 8.5 percent decrease in opioid deaths.
Further, the study found that this trend “appeared particularly strong for deaths associated with synthetic opioids other than methadone, with an estimated 21 percent reduction in mortality rates associated with an increase from one to two dispensaries.”
This is a good thing.
And now that we’re talking legal cannabis, or just because you are on the website of the best craft cannabis in Massachusetts, it’s time to talk goodies at the nearest dispensary to your heart (if not geographically).
So give up searching “dispensary Massachusetts border” or misspelling our name as “canna visions” or “canna provisiona” and other things (hey slow down when you type, we’ll wait).
