    Study: Fewer painkiller deaths in states with medical marijuana

    Wednesday, August 27 2014 9:59 PM EDT2014-08-28 01:59:55 GMT
    A study is published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that in the 13 states that passed laws between 1999 and 2010 allowing medical marijuana, the number of people who died from overdosing on prescription painkillers fell by 25 percent. The study suggests that patients are smoking marijuana to treat pain instead of taking prescription pain killers. But Dr. Robert Glatter of Lenox Hill Hospital said the study is flawed.
