Cannabis for Seniors
I had a conversation with a friend’s father and I’ve come to realize I’m very thankful to be a member of the Double D crew in this wonderful age of information. A lot of the anti-cannabis rhetoric that was pushed on me was via D.A.R.E. They would basically say, weed would make you silly and lazy and not to do it. Well, they were definitely right about the laughs but, I’ve been more productive than ever due to the pain relief I get from cannabis.
Now back to my original point, my conversation with my friend’s father was about the fact, the biggest consumers of cannabis in the recreational states, are people who are in the 55 and older demographic. High Times recently mentioned “The biggest spike was among the 55 to 64-year group: a whopping 455%”.
I’m very genuinely happy I didn’t grow up in an era where all we knew was misinformation or racist based propaganda. I never really had to live in a climate of fear or paranoia, unless I was in certain places where cannabis is WAY more prosecuted.
More and more seniors are realizing they have been lied to and mislead all these years. They weren’t aware of the all the medical benefits that cannabis can provide, on nearly every ailment, let alone the power of cannabis to bring everyone together. When more and more states legalize cannabis, all the toxic fog of misinformation will be dispelled for good! Its 2016, I’ll make a bet and say your grandpa/grandma’s cannabis is as good if not better than yours
