It is still up for debate whether the use of medical marijuana actually helps in reducing opioid abuse. The encouraging results from Pennsylvania and New Jersey highlight the effectiveness of MMJ against opioid abuse. As cited by House Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, both the states have experienced 20 percent decrease in opioid-related deaths as well as the addiction rates. The University of Georgia has also conducted a research on the connection between opioid addiction and marijuana use. The study has concluded that the increased availability of marijuana has actually resulted in cutting down the number of opioid prescriptions in the given area.  

It is also worth mentioning that why Governor David Ige vetoed the SB 2407. Gov. Ige thinks that the inclusion of any medical condition to the qualifying list should be carried out through a due process. The state’s department of health annually reviews the list and that’s the right platform to discuss this measure, according to Ige.
