What is the Positive Impact for Mississippi?

Giving patients and physicians more Medical freedom.

Mississippians with certain types of chronic pain, debilitating conditions, or terminal illnesses will have the medical freedom to work with their physicians to access the least addictive, yet most effective treatments available.

Improving the efficacy of life-saving cancer treatments.

For those undergoing chemotherapy, Medical Cannabis has proven to be safe and effective at reducing the nausea that causes most patients to end their treatments too early.

Reducing unnecessary utilization of healthcare resources.

In a recent study by Johns Hopkins University, researchers found that a significant percentage of Medical Cannabis patients reported using less intensive prescriptions and crisis level medical care.

Reducing the need for opioids.

Through treatments that are proven to be safe and effective under the care of a medical professional, states with medical cannabis laws show a nearly 25% decrease in overdoses due to opiods.
