More than 33,000 Americans died from opioid overdoses last year. Local medical cannabis proponents say many of these deaths can be prevented. HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka reports.
One American dies every 20 minutes after overdosing on opioids, nearly half of them from prescription painkillers like Oxycontin, Percocet, Vicodin and Fentanyl. Brian Goldstein is the founder and CEO of Noa Botannicals, a medical cannabis dispensary in Honolulu.
