What Trump’s New Opioid Plan Means for Cannabis?

Opioid

By Jack Barnes

Yesterday President Donald Trump released his three-pronged opioid plan which unfortunately did not include cannabis as a possible solution to help combat addiction.

He did however mention his support for “non-addictive” alternatives (ah-hem, cannabis) and for “Right-to-Try” state laws, which, in states such as Utahincludes medical marijuana. 

Trump also stated that the “best way to beat the opioid crisis is to keep people from getting hooked on drugs to begin with.” Why not give people a non-addictive substance (cannabis) that they could use instead of harmful drugs such as fentanyl and cocaine?

There are many studies new and old that provide evidence to opioid death reduction in states that cannabis legislation has passed, but more recent data published this month by the Minnesota Department of Health stated that among those patients known to be taking opiate painkillers upon their enrollment into the program, 63% “were able to reduce or eliminate opioid usage after six months.”

AXIM Biotechnologies, a world leader in cannabis research, has been hard at work trying to find a solution that can help with this overwhelming epidemic. The company filed with the USPTO for U.S. Application Serial Number 62/410,469, an invention that involves a chewing gum composition with controlled release of cannabinoids and opioid agonists and/or antagonists for addiction and/or dependence treatment.

Dr. Stuart Titus, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. the first publicly traded cannabis company in the U.S., is a cannabis expert with over 10 years of experience in the industry, and can speak about how opioids and cannabis affects different parts of the brain and how opioid relapse can be stunted by cannabis.
