MORE SENIORS TURN TO POT FOR AGE-RELATED ACHES
One of the fastest-growing segments of marijuana buyers is people 65 and older. Most states now have legal medical marijuana, and 10 of them allow anyone 21 or older to use pot recreationally. Many Americans-61 percent-support legalization for recreational use, and those 65 and older are increasingly supportive. The reason is obvious: the aging are seeking to treat the aches and sleeplessness and other maladies of old age with the same herb that many of them once passed around at parties.
