The Seniors Session: Boomers Embrace Pot – For Pain This Time
When it comes to marijuana, Baby Boomers have lived long enough to play both sides of the fence. Many once got high as a symbol of rebellion. And now they’ve got aching knees and joints that – whaddya know? – respond to a good strong Indica or CBD. There are others who’ve never tried it and may be reluctant to start. But they’ve got peers who can assuage their fears. Whatever the individual story, Boomers now make up more than half of medical marijuana users, and the majority of medical marijuana is prescribed for arthritis. This panel will look at the full spectrum of seniors’ use of pot as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory, and how acceptance continues to grow.
