According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, “overdose deaths, particularly from prescription drugs and heroin, have reached epidemic levels.” Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths in 2016 involved prescription opioids.

No one has ever died from overdosing on marijuana – intentionally or accidentally.

Drug overdoses have become the leading cause of death of Americans under 50, with two-thirds of those deaths from opioids.
She prescribes the type and dosage of marijuana that is appropriate for the individual’s pain or affliction. Some only need a dose a few times a month.
