Medical States See Fewer Sick Days

The study appeared in Health Economics, and it found an 8 to 15 percent decrease in workers calling out sick. But why?
That part seems a little unclear. It could be because cannabis improves general health, so employees are getting sick less. Or it could be because cannabis improves mental health, so workers have more energy and feel more motivated. Or it could be due to medical marijuana replacing popular pharmaceuticals, which are known to elicit a host of side effects in people (which can make them feel or actually become ill).
Either way, we now have even more data that not only does legal cannabis improve our quality of life, it may also assuage our nation's pharmaceutical addiction.
