Marijuana Use “Getting Higher,” for People Over 65

Who’s in the fastest-growing market for marijuana?  Senior citizens.

According to the American Medical Association, use of cannabis – among people over the age of 65 – has doubled, over the last four years.  And it has increased nearly tenfold since 2006.

But some experts are concerned about the increased health risks for pot-smoking seniors.

While cannabis can treat ailments like cancer or Parkinson’s disease; some doctors are concerned that psychoactive drugs can lead to dizziness or falls, or interact badly with other medicines.

Maybe now we will start hearing the phrase:  “Keep ON my grass!”
