Personally, I’ve consumed coffee and cannabis almost daily for nearly a decade and they both enrich my life.

Still, mixing them harmoniously has been a journey for me.

Initially, I found the pairing unsettling: The taste of my pipe ruined the taste of my coffee, and I became unbearably jittery when I smoked weed with my morning java.

States with active medical marijuana laws saw certain opioid prescription rates drop nearly 20 percent compared to prohibition states, a first-of-its-kind study out of Columbia University’s Irving Medical Center has found.

Drug overdoses remain a leading cause of injury-related death in the United States, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 68 percent of those deaths involve illicit or prescription opioids.

Before the pandemic, more than half the states in the U.S. had authorized some form of legalized marijuana use.
