We’re hearing that people in the 50s and 60s are going to pot. LITERALLY! Baby boomers are now using marijuana at record rates! And most of these boomers are not first time users. It’s as if people in their 60s and acting like they’re living in the 60s!
Vaughan Gilmore of Houston’s Meninger Clinic says she is seeing a growing number of users in that age range who could be taking other prescription medication as well. “I think as we move toward legalization in Texas, all people who are using cannabis recreationally should let their doctor know because their doctor will know how their medication and cannabis will work together or against each other.”
And there could be another surprise. “The biggest concern I have is that the canibus of today has a significantly higher rate of THC that the cannibis they used 30 or 40 years ago.”
Well, put that in your pipe and smoke it!
