The Cannabis-Codeine Pain Connection

July 23, 2001

Cannabis is no more effective than codeine for treating pain? ("Cannabinoids Compared With Codeine for Pain," July 9.) The last time I checked, codeine was commonly prescribed for pain because it is widely recognized to be effective. By comparison, that would make marijuana fairly effective as well.
