An Ohio medical professor and family physician, Dr. F. Stuart Leeds, has said that he is gathering data and research on treating opioid addiction with marijuana and plans to give his data to the Ohio Medical Board.

The Ohio Medical Board is accepting petitions through the end of this year that seek to add new qualifying conditions for medical marijuana use. The board will consider new conditions to be added next year as it consults with experts.

According to Leeds, the medical community should not ignore the potential value of marijuana in a state where thousands of people die from opioid overdoses annually.
