Big pharma is spending millions to shut down medical marijuana. It seems all the big drug companies are worried about the rising awareness of medical marijuana as an alternative to painkillers.
Here are some examples of companies who are all funding anti-marijuana activism.
- The makers of the drug Fentanyl spent $500,000 to fight marijuana legalization- in Arizona. (This drug was linked to Prince’s death)
- Purdue Pharma (Oxycontin)
- Janssen (Nucynta)
- Reckit Benckiser (Nurofen)
It estimated that over the last decade these companies and others have spent a total of $880 million on fighting marijuana.
In 2013 the 17 states that allowed medical marijuana use saw painkiller prescriptions drop drastically.
I believe it is time for pharmaceutical companies to take responsibility for the opiod crisis that is causing so many addictions and deaths around the world.
