new study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, and conducted by researchers at Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine, has found that even heavy cannabis consumption has no negative effect on a person’s health status, or their use of health care services (such as emergency room visits).

For the study, researchers studied 589 adults who screened positive for drug use during a primary care visit. Data was then collected on these patients, examining their drug use, their emergency room use and hospitalizations, and their overall health status. In addition, further information regarding past medical diagnoses was obtained from their medical records.

After conducting the study, researchers found absolutely no differences between the health and hospitalization of daily cannabis consumers, compared to those who use no cannabis at all.

“Our findings suggest that marijuana use has little measurable effect on self-reported health or healthcare utilization in adults using drugs identified in a primary care clinic,” says Daniel Fuster, MD, the lead author for the study.

This study combats the prohibitionist argument that tax revenue brought in through cannabis legalization will be offset by increased healthcare costs.

  1. firetheliberals on

    I recently had a viral cold and abstained from smoking ganja. On the third day, I had a general malaise, tired feeling with back of the head pain.
    Went to the vape, and felt fantastic with no symptoms as above. On day six and vape cannabis
    therapy, still working. Best cold therapy I have ever tried.

  2. “Even though we could not compare marijuana users to those who used no drugs at all, our findings suggest that marijuana use has little measurable effect on self-reported health or healthcare utilization in adults using drugs identified in a primary care clinic,”

    and your line “After conducting the study, researchers found absolutely no differences between the health and hospitalization of daily cannabis consumers, compared to those who use no cannabis at all”

    pay attention dude

  3. Does this include smoking too? I am surprised that its published and was not hushed up. Big brother don’t like the truth getting out.

  4. I recently came through major surgery (DIEP reconstruction) using only weed and paracetemol to control pain. I feel bloody wonderful :D
