This study was conducted based on data collected in an anonymous survey to examine the use of alcohol and drugs, and the occurrence of substitution among medicinal cannabis patients. It was found that the reasons for the substitution were: fewer adverse side effects (65%), better management of symptoms (57%) and less potential for abstinence (34%) with cannabis. As a result of this study it was found that medicinal cannabis patients have been participating in the substitution using cannabis as an alternative to alcohol, prescriptions and illicit drugs.
