Cannabis Science will implement its ‘Cannabis Science to End Opioids Deaths Now Campaign!’ This will be another ‘iCannabinoid, We the People Campaign’! All CBIS pharmacy locations will implement special programs to educate the people and help eradicate opioid deaths by replacing opioids with Cannabinoids, pills, extracts, tinctures, sprays, inhalers, and many more options that all have serious potential to end opioid additions. “It has been known that Cannabis is used as a ‘Gateway out’ of opioid addiction. This is not new,” stated Mr. Dabney. “Why aren’t the people educated? This is where we can step up our game and help educate on the potential benefits of cannabinoids. Sign up in iCannabinoid and set up your own ‘Action Group’ or join an existing ‘End Opioid Deaths’ Action Group, or come on down to our Ventura Boulevard location and we’ll come up with some ideas and solutions for you to try. We the people can make a change. One saved life at a time is more than enough to motivate me to start making a difference right now!” concluded Mr. Dabney.
“Politicians promise to lead the country out of the worst drug crisis in its history, but opioid abuse continues to kill Americans in record numbers. Are our leaders ignoring a lifesaving solution? Over 115 Americans die every day from opioid overdoses, more than those killed in car accidents, from breast cancer or even guns. Nearly 2.5 million Americans struggle with opioid addiction, and though controversial, some people believe a potentially lifesaving solution may lie in medical marijuana. In the fourth installment of his groundbreaking series, CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta takes an in-depth look at marijuana’s potential as both an alternative to opioids in treating pain and in ending opioid addiction. WEED 4: POT VERSUS PILLS will air on CNN, Sunday, April 29th at 8pm ET.
WEED 4: POT VS PILLS will stream live for subscribers on Sunday April 29th via CNNgo (at CNN.com/go and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Samsung Smart TV and Android TV) and on the CNN mobile apps for iOS and Android.
