In a study recently published in the American Journal of Public Health, a correlation has been found between the legalization of medical marijuana and a reduction in opioid-related fatal car crashes. The study was conducted over a fourteen year period between 1999 and 2013 and spanned 18 states. In states where medical marijuana legislation was passed, it was found that there were fewer opioid-related fatal car accidents relative to the states that had not passed such laws. The Washington Post reports that this correlation adds to the mounting evidence suggesting that sufferers of chronic pain are likely to use medical marijuana to manage their pain when given the option, decreasing the need for opiate based painkillers. Legalized medical marijuana has also been linked to a decrease in painkiller prescriptions and in painkiller overdose deaths.

It’s not surprising. Oregon has a long and storied history with cannabis. Over the last several decades, Oregon has established a tradition of cultivating incredibly potent marijuana that’s highly sought after by cannabis aficionados everywhere. Why is it so good? It’s partially because Oregon has a climate that is perfect for cannabis plants to flourish, and it’s partially because Oregon cultivators have had the time to perfect their art. Growing good plants takes practice.
