Dr Oz: Prescribing Marijuana Instead Of Opiates

Dr Oz will perform his own investigation to find out why more doctors are prescribing marijuana for their patients with chronic pain, rather than giving them opiates. Typically, medications like Vicodin, Oxycontin, and Codeine have been prescribed to those who are in a constant state of pain, but that’s begun to change a bit ever since the legalization of marijuana in a few states.
