90% Of Elderly On Medication
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) reports that 90% of persons over the age of 60 are on at least one form of medication. A lot of that medication is prescribed for chronic pain –the most common ailment among the elderly.
The National Institute for Health (NIH) tells us that almost 55% of elderly persons living alone suffer pain daily. Up to 80% of that group, living in extended living facilities, also suffer chronic pain.
Pain-Free At A Lower Cost
When the retirement community discovered that medical marijuana not only relieved pain, but cost less, a whole world of possibilities opened up for them.

For one thing, it means there’s money left over for food.
Chronic pain can cause anxiety, depression, loss of appetite and insomnia. Using cannabis may help many pensioners to be able to live normal lives again. Imagine that.
Like the fisherman said about the big fish he spent all day trying to catch, “He didn’t get that big by being stupid.”
It’s the same with people. The ones who live long don’t tend to take risks. If they’ve done their research, they know that marijuana is safe and non-addictive. Nobody has ever died from an overdose.
