Daily Marijuana consumption is an effective way to treat Chronic Pain

Marijuana has been used for millennia to treat pain. Whoopi Goldberg and Queen Victoria, both used Cannabis to relieve their cramps and migraines. US Pharmacopeia in 1930 listed Cannabis and tinctures thereof, to be a potent painkiller and was especially good for women's issues. Literally every study done on marijuana indicates that it's safe and it's opioid counterparts are, in every case, found to be dangerous with potentially life threatening side effects.

"Preclinical and clinical studies have suggested that they are useful to treat diverse diseases, including those related with acute or chronic pain. The discovery of cannabinoid receptors, their endogenous ligands, and the machinery for the synthesis, transport, and degradation of these retrograde messengers, has equipped us with neurochemical tools for novel drug design."

"Currently available treatments, generally opioids and anti-inflammatory drugs, are not always effective for certain painful conditions. The discovery of the cannabinoid receptors in the 1990s led to the characterisation of the endogenous cannabinoid system in terms of its components and numerous basic physiologic functions. CB1 receptors are present in nervous system areas involved in modulating nociception and evidence supports a role of the endocannabinoids in pain modulation. Basic research on how cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids intervene in pain mechanisms is progressing rapidly."
