Old People Love Weed

Just read an awesome article about old people smoking weed. Some choice quotes:

“Each night, 66-year-old Stroup says he sits down to the evening news, pours himself a glass of wine and rolls a joint. He’s used the drug since he was a freshman at Georgetown, but many older adults are revisiting marijuana after years away.”

“The kids are grown, they’re out of school, you’ve got time on your hands and frankly it’s a time when you can really enjoy marijuana,” Stroup said. “Food tastes better, music sounds better, sex is more enjoyable.”

and my favorite – “Siegel bucks the trend as someone who was well into her 50s before she tried pot for the first time. She can muster only one frustration with the drug. “I never learned how to roll a joint,” she said. “It’s just a big nuisance. It’s much easier to fill a pipe.”

Pretty hilarious. To paraphrase my buddy RW, down the road nursing homes are gonna be filled with smoke and old blazed people sitting around destroying prunes and watching The Price is Right. And it’s gonna be awesome.
