Just guessing, I would assume that heroin addicts would augment their highs with strong cannabis doses, thereby using less opiate (stretching it for lower cost, longer availability) and thereby having fewer overdoses.  Medical cannabis is more often sold in stronger concentrates and infused candy for a more time-released effect, than is typically available in legal recreational cannabis markets.

Cannabis users that concurrently use alcohol, generally smoke less cannabis and drink less alcohol, than either alone.  Why would not the same relationship occur between those using cannabis and heroin, concurrently?
