Cannabis California: is the sixth state to introduce the sale of recreational marijuana, after Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Nevada. ... Unlike the other states that have legalized, California has a vast industry producing the drug, much of which is illegally sold across state lines.Jan 1, 2018


Legalized pot is an idea Americans are warming up to ― almost two-thirds, 64 percent, approve of it, according to a Gallup poll from last October.

But while pot smokers are typically portrayed as young hipsters, oldsters may actually be the fastest growing weed-using demographic, many marijuana industry insiders tell HuffPost.

Turns out, all those senior citizens who tried pot in their hippie days are now toking, er, taking advantage of changing cannabis laws and better quality control of marijuana.

John Sudderth, the director of inventory at Lightshade Dispensary, a Colorado-based dispensary with six locations, said senior citizens are the next budding market.

However, baby boomers have changed their pot habits since the Woodstock era, Sudderth said.

“We believe this demographic consumes less frequently than average. They like to take smaller doses, also,” he said.

Many people who smoked back in the day gave it up, partially because they feared legal consequences. But legalization, as well as pot strains bred for “consistent and repeatable effects” means oldsters are now less hesitant to try cannabis, Sudderth said.

His dispensary is helping spur sales by coordinating with Colorado-area senior living centers to help spread awareness of pot’s effectiveness in relieving some chronic pain.

(The Pot Book, edited by Julie Holland, M.D.: The Pot Book contains the work of over fifty contributors, primarily MDs and PhDs, each writing (or being interviewed) about their areas of expertise. After three years of putting this book together, I'm convinced that cannabis can be re-introduced to physicians and patients as the multifaceted medicine it once was. I think we will see in the next decade or so an explosion of research into the therapeutic use of cannabinoids as medications.

Exploring the role of cannabis in medicine, politics, history, and society, The Pot Book offers a compendium of the most up-to-date information and scientific research on marijuana from leading experts. The Pot Book also examines the risks associated with cannabis use, and puts them in the context of potential benefits.
