According to a recent study conducted by the digital marketing arm of Gannett — LOCALiQ — cannabis helped more than half of the almost 9,000 participants reduce their prescription drug use. 

In the study, 8,805 participants in cannabis-legal states — ages 21 to 64 — were surveyed. 52% of participants reported a reduction in their need for prescription drugs, while 49% of them reduced their OTC painkillers. And alcohol? 37% of participants said their alcohol intake diminished since they started consuming cannabis. 

This study piggybacks off of others suggesting similar positive affects of cannabis consumption, including this study that discusses cannabis and PTSD management.
