A new study published by the Journal of Health Economics, has found two things that may shed a light on the affect of medical marijuana with the opioid crisis.

The study confirmed the results of a study in 2014 that found that states with medical marijuana laws have fewer rates of fatal opioid overdoses.

The study also found however that as more states adopt medical marijuana laws, with data after 2010, the laws effectiveness “completely disappears.”

One of the study’s authors, Rosalie Pacula stated, “This is a sign that medical marijuana, by itself, will not be the solution to the nation’s opioid crisis today.”
