Proponents of medical marijuana have long touted the drug’s pain-killing properties. And while marijuana may provide a limited benefit for specific types of neuropathic pain, a preponderance of evidence suggests that it does not provide effective relief for more common types of chronic or acute pain. In fact, new research shows that people who used marijuana before surgery required much higher levels of anesthesia and post-op pain relief.

A total of 3,620 respondents finished the survey and qualified for the survey. Respondents had to have been sworn law enforcement members of Police1, not retired, and not in federal law enforcement. Following the survey an additional five responses from respondents were dropped because they did not meet the criteria based on information provided in write-in responses. Results presented below are based on a final total of 3,615 respondents.
