Marijuana andopioid combo not addictive A combination of marijuana and opioids could be more effective at reducing pain than using each substance alone, new research suggests.

The combination could also help cut patient dependence on opioids to relieve pain, which could decrease the likelihood of developing an addiction to the medication, according to a study presented Tuesday at the American Society of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.

"These data provide additional evidence supporting the notion that opioid-cannabinoid mixtures that or effective for treating pain do not have greater and in some cases have a less, adverse a fax compared with larger doses of each drug," Vanessa Minervini, a researcher at the University of Texas health science Center at San Antonio and study author, said in a news release.
