According to the Center for Disease Control, “opioid-related overdose deaths now outnumber overdose deaths involving all illicit drugs such as heroin and cocaine combined.” Another study found that people who have access to medical marijuana are less at risk of developing painkiller abuse or dying from prescription drug overdoses.

Fortunately, the American Nurse Association House of Delegates has actively supported the nurse to be advocates for access to healthcare for all patient including those are in need of marijuana/cannabis for therapeutic use. (ANA, 2008) Therefore, as a health care provider, my dream is to be involved in further research about marijuana’s effectiveness, determine the therapeutic dosage and route of delivery in order to give patients the safest care with the best outcome. My DNP project on chronic pain management will be the stepping stone to making this dream come true.
Recently the use of medical marijuana has become a very controversial topic among the community and government. Marijuana has a stereotype with hippies and drug offences, often leading to its medical benefits being overlooked consequently marijuana is only rarely given to patients with extreme conditions. It is not being used efficiently as well as not being used to its potential.

As a nation we have come to point where we must take a unified stand on the issue of marijuana. Since 1937 the drug has been deemed illegal by the U.S. government but over the best decade, people have been pushing for the decriminalization of the cannabis plant. As a non drug user, i have researched the internet in search of unbiased information regarding the drugs health, economic, and crime influences on society. The fruits of my labor have brought me to the undisputable conclusion that our continued restriction on possession and use of the drug not only violates the liberties of U.S. citizens, but it also is costing Americans Billions of dollars, and something, our lives.
