It's undeniable that cannabis is a medication. It is, however - perhaps undeservedly - on the nation's Controlled Substances Act, the rundown of America's most risky medications. The vast majority of drugs are classified as pharmaceutical. In the 28 states where therapeutic cannabis is legitimate, so is just regular cannabis. In those 28 states, something fascinating has occurred over the previous decade: people on Medicaid filled fewer prescriptions. According to a new study, the amount of prescriptions filled by this group declined to such a degree...Continue reading Study: Medical Marijuana Could Save Medicaid $1 Billion
