It’s no secret that older folks enjoy their marijuana.
These three grandmas smoking for the first time is a fine example of the glee the older generation is finding in cannabis legalization. They are even becoming industry leaders: Nonna Marijuana, 91-years-old, is known as the Queen of Weed Cuisine.
While they may struggle with the latest tech (such as this grandpa who tries to smoke a bowl like a crack pipe), the numbers coming to cannabis are increasing:
“Seniors are the fastest growing group taking up pot.”
When you think about it, it actually makes a lot of sense. What do they have to lose? Who are the ones with the free time? One grandma in Australia reflects these sentiments perfectly; when told that she could be arrested for smoking, she laughs:
“Oh, come and get me. That bullshit!”
It’s not just enjoyment — there’s a practical need that many people approaching the end of their lives share: pain relief.
“I don’t believe in drugs, but then I’ve also never been someone who’s suffered from pain. Marijuana kept me alive.”
Give the grandparents the ganja, they deserve it!
