Think of how many people it can help vs the people that can become victims of much worse (and addictive!). I firmly believe the opiod epidemic wouldn't be an issue, and the lives of countless individuals who fall victim to their own mental instabilities would be saved. Non habit forming, eases depression, anxiety, pain, nausea, lowers blood pressure for some, can ease symptoms of much worse disease states (Parkinson's, cancer, etc). Not to mention easing alcohol and benzodiazepine dependency. Pharmaceutical executives and lobbyists won't let it happen though. Heaven forbid American lives be more important than personal wealth. Heck, the tax revenue alone could fund struggling sectors of our government.
