Americans for Safe Access stated in its online brochure "Medical Marijuana and Chronic Pain" (accessed May 4, 2006):

“Cannabis can serve at least two important roles in safe, effective pain management. It can provide relief from the pain itself (either alone or in combination with other analgesics), and it can control the nausea associated with taking opiod drugs, as well as the nausea, vomiting and dizziness that often accompany severe, prolonged pain.”
