Why Growing Numbers of Baby Boomers and the Elderly Are Smoking Pot
More and more of the nation’s 78 million Boomers are discovering they’d rather smoke marijuana than reach for a pharmaceutical
Conventional wisdom dictates that as younger generations slowly replace the old, conservative social traditions are jettisoned. This may be true for issues such as gay marriage, where there are clear divisions among younger and older voters, but when it comes to marijuana reform, the evidence indicates that simplistic divisions of opinion along age lines don’t apply for pot.
Earlier this week, an AP wire article picked up a lot of buzz in the news-cycle, with a title and premise meant to shock the mainstream: “Marijuana Use by Seniors Goes up as Boomers Age.”
The AP article was pegged to a December report released by the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). It revealed that the number of Americans over 50 who had reported consuming cannabis in the year prior to the study had gone up from 1.9 percent to 2.9 percent in the period from 2002 to 2008.
This is supported by earlier polling results. In February 2009, a Zogby poll found that voters aged 50 to 64 were almost equally divided in their support for marijuana legalization at 48 percent. In that same poll, young voters aged 18 to 29 were the cohort who most enthusiastically supported legalization, at 55 percent. But overall support among all ages came in at 44 percent.
So who brought the average down? Don’t lay the blame on the elderly. In fact, as early as 2004, an AARP poll found that 72 percent of its members (all 50-plus, with the lion’s share over 65) supported marijuana for medical purposes, indicating their understanding of the benefits of legal cannabis availability.
Some expert observers in the marijuana reform movement believe that the bulk of marijuana detractors are made up of 30- and 40-somethings — adults of parenting age. And as more of the 65-and-over crowd is populated by Baby Boomers, it appears that in the not-too-distant future every age demographic including the elderly will approve of marijuana reform more than Americans in their 30s and 40s.

I honestly think that America’s War on Drugs, should focus on Cocaine, Methamphetamines, Heroin,ect….not Marijuana. I also think its bull that people are arrested/die/hurt someone every single day, due to alcohol, but yet, they sell it everywhere. Alcohol, in my personal opinion, is far more dangerous and addictive than marijuana. Our country is so far in debt, well, I say, sell marijuana cigarettes in the store, tax the crap out of it, and see how far that gets us. They will make money, lots of it, and there will be less people sitting in jail, wasting my money, your money, our money, b/c of pot. My best friend was killed by a drunk driver – he’s not in jail. But hey, don’t get caught w/ pot on you, or you will go to jail. Get real AMERICA !!!!!!
High, Seems there is a combination of factors, but perhaps the greatest is simply more truthful reporting of use. Many of the boomers have always used cannabis, but have been very closeted. The obvious reasons for this, children and jobs—
As we (I am “One of Them Boomers” who will soon be retiring) have more freedom, we become more free with our opinions and less closeted.
Medical use is the other reason—those who never used cannabis are finding this is a safe, effective medicine for most all of the ills of the elderly, including helping heal cancer. As access grows, the number of social and medical users will gain in all demographics. Since “boomers” are largest population bubble in history, there will be a lot of us in the ranks of the cannabis users for the next few decades. I plan on another 40 years of toking and joking myself.
I would love to come out of the closet to even become a member on facebook but fearing I could loose everything including my job if someone sees me, I cannot risk it. I am in my 50’s and not on any prescription drugs. Prefer the MJ instead. That is probably why its not legal. The drug co. are paying some members of congress to keep it illegal in exchange for a cut.
we figured out the LIE!!!!!
dont blame us 30 somethings we are for reform to, at least the 30 somethings i know, but then again we all dont have children and we all study scienes, so we have researched the drug war and most drug effects. although some of our less intelligent wives disagree. I challange anyone who is not for reform and legalazation of Cannabis L Sativa Psylocibin lyserig acid D and Mescaline to study them and then still be against them.
Keep educating people – 40-something moms are having to deal with reactions to the pharmaceutical poisons – opiate-based medicines are dangerous and addictive, not cannabis. Cannabis is traditional medicine for North America, just as they have their indiginous healing plants down in South America (which are what the pharmaceuticals are looking to synthesize and patent next)
It doesn’t really make sense to compare the 44% nationwide support for recreational legalization with the 72% support among seniors for medical access. The national support for the latter is at 81%, suggesting seniors are actually less likely then your average voter to support such a measure. Maybe we should “blame the elderly” after all.
That’s right my friend! Out with Superstition & In with SUPER NUTRITION!!!!!! With Hemp Foods Leading Thee Way!!!!!!!
Indeed America is getting smarter without help from the younger generation with their Wei n’ PS2 n’ all those stupid video games:) Baby-Boomers-Rock!
The soul looks steadily forward, creating a reality before it, leaving a reality behind it. The soul knows only the soul; all else is idle weeds for the wearing. We must learn from the vast history of our being, or our being has brought forth wisdom for naught. The fruit tree grows from its seed. It grows full to bring forth fruit. That fruit [ripe] falls from the tree and the fruit is for us to consume or the tree has brought forth fruit for naught. The years of man gain wisdom from experience, and every day its wisdom falls from the tree. Only from wisdom can the book of our life be read. Yet! every man’s words, who speak from his life, must sound vain to those who do not dwell in the same thought, on their own part.
thank god baby boomers.. keep on tokin up!! i’m proud to be one so let’s get weed legal so i can enjoy my golden years high and happy!!!!
end the war on marijuana!
I am really conflicted on this issue. I am a MedMJ patient, 65 yrs.old,and I have adult children that I know have “experimented” with Cannabis , but I do not want to encourage them to use Cannabis,mainly because marijuana is illegal and all of the legal crap,especially while they raise my grandchildren, but I also know that they enjoy alcohol,which I actually see as more of a threat than Cannabis.What’s apparent to do?
I’m now 55 years old and have been a member of NORML since 1977. I started smoking in 1968 and have not stopped. Most of my friends and family think it should be legal ( I have influenced them). As the Vietnam generation starts to retire the number of users will skyrocket. My plan is to start an assisted living business that caters to old hippies like myself and provide them with the best cannabis we can grow or find at our local suppliers. We think everyone at this place will be happy and healthy for along time.
#1: Although marijuana obviously should never have been included in the “war on drugs”, I do not believe we should support the “war” in any form. A “war on drugs” is a war on the people. Nobody should go to jail for drug possession, even if it is meth or crack. Drug abuse is a health issue not a criminal issue.
#10: Not all youth play mindless video games. There are games out there that are actually educational, whether the players realize it or not. Lots of these kids who play games like Warcraft don’t even realize they are learning about past civilizations.
Besides, I don’t know many people who don’t smoke weed before they play any kind of video game, including console games like PS2. In fact, I don’t know many people who don’t smoke weed period… and I am 22.
The Zietgiest is changing, my friends.
Its good to see the boomers come out an speak, maybe we will get it legal for Rec. Use. i personally think it should be law to have it in some way shape of form at a young age for maybe PREVENTION of anything that may come up when u get elderly. cancers,and any kinda of disease. Whats wrong with stop it b4 it starts??
What a bunch of weenies, “I can’t speak up because, because, because”. No ones asking you to go overboard and shout from the mountain top that you support the end of Prohibition. What is being asked is that you leave your FEAR behind and embrace Caution. Start talking to people, be discreet, but frakking do it. Don’t say anything at work or to the idiot neighbor across the street or next door, but frakking speak up and often.
THE GENESIST FAITH: Soul lives in the NOW, not the past and not the future, Zen UP!
End the war on drugs? I think it should be …end oppression. Thats what all these wars are…oppression. maybe start a new war? Government seems to like wars….call this new war “THE WAR ON OPPRESSION”
well i have always said…” drunk drivers are all over the road, while pot drivers are all over town.” there has never been an accident due to smoking pot! in fact people who smoke pot r slower drivers. it IS the pharmecutical companies that r stopping the legalization of marijuana. ask your doc and they will tell you the same.
51 years old (first tried in mid 70s) and STILL smoking my weed, although not as much as I used to. I do it responsibly and very much enjoy it and would rather toke than drink alcohol any day. It’s about time it is legalized and taxed
P.S But…. NOOOOO that would put the Bigg Fukin Pharma outta business …..But would actually work
Dont forget the fact that the polls only reflect what people feel comfortable admitting. I think support for medical cannabis and general legalization is far greater than these polls indicate.
We are faced with an incredibly uphill battle. Not only are Big Pharma, chemical giants, law enforcement, and anti-hemp industries against law reform, but there are also millions of Americans who rely upon income from illegal cultivation and sales to support themselves and their families.
Many of these folks started out with a little garden which grew to provide real income, and they fell prey to the same temptations which fuel the rest of society, the quest for money.
As much as I respect their original intentions, I believe they are truly traitors. Guilty of the same thing they used to be so critical of…selling out.
#19 lea: i agree. most of us know others that consume, and they know others, and so on and so on. what is necessary is sort of an underground alliance to cut this bullshit prohibition down at the knees
Misleading. Americans age 65+ are not more supportive of legalizing marijuana than Americans age 30-64. Not even close.
Ho hum, 24 comments speculating, Why Prohibition? and not one mentions the Tobackgo Industry. Think it through: a TRILLION DOLLARS sales yearly worldwide based on 94% of all the smokers doing what the advertising teaches, i.e. torching up a 700-mg. papered overdose every time they want a smoke; modern high-THC skunkweed teaches user moderation in the form of Vaporizer or 25-mg. single tokes in a longtube one-hitter; if cannabis were legal, single-toke utensils would be everywhere unambiguously legal, activists could spread the practice over into the tobackgo-addict population, and that ol’ hot-burning-overdose profit empire is history.
Get smart, bone up on the history of Big 2WackGo, its slave addict-fueled financial power to lawbuy and/or bribe legislators (in the form of “taxes”) to promote cannabis prohibition. pHARMa? It feeds off tobackgo, in the form of making $billions off the sale of drugs for high blood pressure and other products of lifelong nigotine slavery.
The commentators who were closest were those who noted the dilemma of the parenting generation: ONE cannabis arrest and our kid will be ineligible to attend the high-prestige university, and will wind up making $1.4 million less by age 50– tough luck for us in our old age.
I don’t think that the number of older persons using cannabis are actualy goiong up. I just think that the number(as previously stated) that are willing to admitt it are going up. I am a Woodstock veteran, and would like you to think of just how old do you think we are at this time? I’m 65, and have been a user of cannabis since 1968. I have no doubt that the authorities know I consume cannabis. I have done nothing to hide this fact for quite some time. I wish that ALL responsible adult users of cannabis would come out of the closet. While you are cowering in that closet you are invisible, and nobody cares about invisible people. Especialy the gov.
P/S In the 41yrs I have been a responsible user of cannabis I have NEVER been busted.
I see a trend in the comments here and elsewhere that in my opinion, could, be contributing to the continued taboo many place on MJ. The terminologies used in referring to product and usage lean toward the “dude” culture. The terms; getting high/staying high/high/bud/weed/toke etc… I don’t really have suggestions for new, more adult, more acceptable terms, but when we speak of medical use and legalization, the culture needs new language. When you hear someone talk about getting “shit fsced” or hammered, on alcohol, it brings to mind the immature and elicit nature. Same with MJ. To encourage the opposition to take us moe seriously, we need to take ourselves more seriously. No one “really listens” to a 19 yr. old college student when arguing in favor of legalization if he/she uses terms like bong rips/kind bud etc.
Many thanks to #25 Rick, and you’re right, it’s going to go in the direction of an underground railroad type of thing if more people don’t speak up. We are being persecuted and it’s not going to stop unless more get involved.
Start with one person then work yourself up as your confidence and talking points evolve.
It’s easy to talk to people, even people you don’t know. You can strike up a conversation like, “what do you think about the drug war?” From their words you can gauge their thoughts. If they’re against then have your facts straight and let them know how much of their tax dollars are going to it. (taxes are a big issue, always have been). Anticipate answers and reactions that are stupid because they usually are.
Then again there’s some you’ll never be able to convince. I’ve loaded my chiro down with verifiable facts (printed and spoken) and he still won’t let go of the entrenched propaganda that sickens his mind.
Facebook Grandma420 is non productive in my eye, and you can bet your bottom dollar that the gubermint is monitoring it closely. I was there for maybe two months and then deactivated my account. I much prefer these blogs, I much prefer NORML over any organization out there too.
Darn people, change some of your priorities. Make being a part of ending this corrupt war on drugs a priority. Be glad you have a job and an income. Don’t take the vacation this year, (unless California legalizes), and really apply yourself, arm yourself with information.
Join a NORML chapter, be active in that chapter. If there’s none in your area then start one.
Don’t you people feel bad for the non-violents who are now in prison? What about Robert W. Batsch, 55, a man who killed himself Tuesday morning, hours after being charged with felony child endangering for allegedly growing marijuana in the family home? What about the VA vets that cannot get cannabis even in a Medical MJ state? What about #18 – chris from KY Says: February 25th, 2010 at 8:16 am – “Today I get final sentence on cultivation over 5 2nd offense. Plea bargain was for 3 years. IF you don’t see a comment from me later …well you will know where i am!” Haven’t seen a comment from him, have you?
These people are our own, don’t you see?
You know the tragedies of this war on drugs, mull the horror stories around inside your head and let me know how you really feel. Just be careful, put your big toe in the ocean first and eventually you’ll be able to jump in and swim.
#31 Thanks Lea.Am I safe in my person? Could drug testing be regarded as a form of molestation? How does Norml feel about this? If you have ever been abused you feel angry and ashamed. I am telling the drug testers to get their dirty hands off me,because that is the way I feel about it.
#30 coinslott – You do have a point. Changing people’s perception might make them open up to marijuana decriminalization. But realize that slang terms and ignoramus-culture are part of legal drug culture. Just look at booze, getting hammered, smashed, crunked etc etc. Not to mention violence, rape, crime and car crashes are commonly associated with ‘booze.’ If society is o.k. with those generalizations about alcohol, but will reject marijuana decriminalization because of non-violent, sedated, and burnt out generalizations then I don’t think there is any hope for us in this lifetime anyways.
We just need to stop voting for establishment career politicians. Our current politicians are only loyal to their party and to corporatism. The answer is to educate, motivate and mobilize people to vote for honest politicians who are actually interested in representing their constituents rather than their own self-serving purposes. There are plenty of candidates fitting this bill on the left, right, up, down, middle already for 2010, but not enough. We need to help them and build momentum so that we have more choices in 2012 and so on. It is the only way. Obviously we must work with what we have now, but we will never truly progress until we reestablish accountability and representation in Congress and the presidency.
Cant wait to get old to smoke da herb!
Perhaps it is because it is a lot more pleasant than drinking
It’s a tough thing for some of us out there who for career reasons can’t join NORML, and can’t be more public supporters of the efforts to end the war on drugs. Especially for people in education or public service, there is a “one strike and you’re out” policy…they stay out of your personal life for the most part, but if you ever get in trouble with the law for pretty much anything, especially drugs, you’d better start looking for another line of work, because this career is over.
That said, there are still ways to effect change around you. Telling someone you eat lunch with that you support ending the drug war, and regulating drugs, and why the world’s drug problems are a public health issue, does not say “and hey, I do drugs.” It just establishes that there is another viewpoint out there, and particularly if you can support your arguments well, you may find some people listen to you.
Therefore, it is up to all of us to do what we can to spread the word, and try to turn the tide in whatever way we can. Those of you who can be more public and do more, THANK YOU! You are invaluable in the struggle. But for those of us who can’t yet, do SOMETHING. Every little bit helps. The more people and support we have, the faster things change.
I guess once again we learn that the Obama administration was full of it offering us any change. Marijuana Seizure have nearly DOUBLED under his tenure thus far: http://www.mainjustice.com/2010/03/01/dea-marijuana-seizures-nearly-double/
[The total amount of marijuana seized by the Drug Enforcement Administration nearly doubled from 1,539 metric tons in fiscal 2008 to 2,980 metric tons in last year.
The numbers were disclosed as part of the DEA’s budget request for fiscal 2011.
Despite Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement that targeting individual users of cannabis for medical purposes was no longer a priority, the DEA budget request spoke dismissively of the benefits of medical marijuana, even placing the word patients in quotation marks.
“DEA does not investigate or target individual ‘patients’ who use cannabis, but instead the drug trafficking organizations involved in marijuana trafficking,” the request stated.]
Whomever we think is viable or not in 2012, please don’t vote for this fraud. Clearly NOTHING will change under the Obama presidency.
Baby boomers may end up leading the reform movement in the years ahead. Many are not in the best health and soon to be hitting an age where health is a problem even for so-called healthy people. Since a prescription of 420 is good for just about any ailment, it seems reasonable to assume that usage is going to rise and pressure to legalize will also. As soon as they hit retirement, remember their college days, and puff… well, then we may see some real pressure on our political scumbags. If politicians don’t listen and pass appropriate legislation, well… nothing new.
I don’t know if I agree with the statistics in this piece. As a Baby-Boomer, I NEVER stopped smoking herb. I mean, I take breaks now and then by going “on the wagon” for a couple of months. And I don’t smoke everyday as I did when I was a youth.
Most of the people that I’ve known all these years still smoke herb. A few have given it up ; mostly those that became brainwashed by the so-called Born-Again Christian crowd.
I’m currently on probation b/c of driving with a metabolite in my system. The long arm of the law reaches far and is fondling people it shouldn’t. I’m a first time offender and they are attempting to send me to rehab for my love of a beautiful plant. I’ve always tried to blame the elderly for making to ignorant laws we have in place but this article gives me hope for the future. I apologize for being mad at the elderly. (I guess you are not so bad after all keep fighting the good fight)
#11 what are you talking about?im 53 mow and im a smoker since 1974.lets get it legal now.when i started smoking weed it was 10.00 for mex and 20.00 for columbian.a pound was 80.00.keep on smoking
I’m a 60-yr old California female, who’s smoked marijuana DAILY since 1967. I’ve also been an active marijuana advocate since the late ’60s. My old man and I both have medical pot “prescriptions,” and are allowed to grow our own “medicine.”
Because I’m engaged in the political system, and FREQUENTLY “write my congressman,” it’s rewarding to see that my 40+ years of active marijuana advocacy are starting to pay off. I’ve ALWAYS been “out front” about my love of marijuana, and rarely censor myself, preferring to speak openly about it. I CANNOT be arrested for what I say to others, or post online, because the First Amendment guarantees me the right of Free Speech.
My suggestion to those who’d like to “enlighten” others about pot is to present yourself as an “Ambassador for Marijuana,” demonstrating you CAN follow the conversation; you CAN speak in complete sentences, using polysyllabic words; you ARE engaged in your community, your state, and your country; you DO get things accomplished, and you DON’T sit around, doing nothing all day. Be an example of a responsible adult marijuana user.
As a “Boomer,” (BTW, a “Boomer” is someone born in 1946 thru 1964), I’m confident “we” WILL prevail, and I think legalization will happen in my lifetime. Here in CA, we’re “thisclose” to legislating responsible adult (age 21 or over) pot use. If we can achieve this in November 2010, I know other states will follow suit.
I founded, and manage a pot group for seniors, called “Old Tokers,” at the social networking site, Eons. Here’s a link to it: http://www.eons.com/groups/group/old-tokers
There are over 400 of us “Boomers” in this small little group — multiply that number by ALL the online web sites devoted to both marijuana, AND us Boomers, and you’ve got a HUGE contingent of pot enthusiasts. We’re tired of seeing our tax dollars, and other resources poured into this never-ending “black hole,” that has done what, exactly?
Proportionately-speaking, we have the LARGEST prison population in the world, where a person is arrested EVERY 37 SECONDS in this country for a marijuana “crime”! And 80% of those pot arrests are for simple possession. (BTW, these stats come directly from the Justice Dept, itself!)
I’d love to see us Boomers be the ones who ultimately effect legalization — what a great legacy to leave behind!
To those Boomers who’ve never stopped working for legal pot, thank you; to those Boomers who enjoy marijuana, but are still sitting on the side-lines, SPEAK YOUR VOICE!
Send support e-letters to your elected officials — NORML makes it super-easy, with their “Contact Officials in [Your State] Legislative Action Alert” pages — I send 1 almost every day! Even those of you in jobs that require NO MARIJUANA TALK, your superiors CAN’T interfere with what letters you write your congressman, be it in favor of gay rights, legalizing marijuana, or ANY OTHER SUBJECT MATTER! So those of you who still have to “keep a low profile,” express your pro-pot opinions to your reps, especially if they’re anti-pot.
Stay High and Peace!
Marijuana, Mary Jane, Weed, Chronic, etc, add nauseaum. It is “Cannabis”. Stoned, Wasted, Blasted, Twisted, etc, add nauseaum. It is “intoxicated”. There are many terms/phrases that you use with your friends, that’s cool. When you are speaking to an oppenent you all need to use the correct terminology. When you speak of being intoxicated use a level of intoxication. Mildly, medium, or very will do. Saying you were “stoned outa your mind” will simply confirm thier stereotype, and beliefe that pot makes you crazy. The devil is in the details.
To Joe “Ironman” Siler—-“Intoxicated” is a word that NEVER should be used when referring to cannabis. “Intoxicated” means POISONED and this is totally not true. Cannabis is not toxic or poisonous in any way, so the use of the word intoxicate is wrong. Alcohol is TOXIC and therefore intoxication is correct when speaking of alcohol poisoning. “INEBRIATION” is the proper term for the mental condition caused by ingesting cannabis. You are so right about using the correct words, thanks for the heads up….it is subtle, but important.
I am proud to be a child of the 60s. I have used cannabis for over 40years. I am a high functioning, internationally recognized scientist. I did not know I was using it for medical reasons until I stopped in my late 30s. Then I was diagnosed with glaucoma. My eye guy said “start smoking again”. Now I also uses strains that are good for chronic pain since we babyboomers are aging. We were the youth revolt of the 60s and we are still leading the way in cannabis use for medicine and play.
Free the Weed from the Greed.
As a baby boomer all I can say is this-how in the heck are you going to put someone who smokes weed in jail but you legalize gay marriage? Now I dont give a hoot if you allow gays to marry but darn it the days of you treating marijuana users as red headed stepchildren is over! and this will be shown at the ballot box! and one more thing how in the heck can someone rape a child or murder someone and still be eligible for school grants and food stamps but someone with a drug conviction is barred from government assistance. what? what? oh yeah I will be paying attention to our mother NORML and she has already put you politicians on notice-her children have had enough and so has she!
#8 Rhayader raised a point about RECREATIONAL and MEDICAL use; #9 Rev. Izereckt offered SUPERNUTRITION in place of superstition. #43 “Ironman” warned against doper slang but offered “intoxication” which #44 Smith corrected to inebriated”. I think the term we are looking for is INSPIRATIONAL (alongside medical etc. But “wreck-creational” is a bum rap, that’s alcohol).
#19 Lea has a good riefer conservative attitude: “Leave FEAR behind and embrace CAUTION”. The myth pointed out by #42 Alison Weaver, that cannabis users sit around, originated, I think, by and for the benefit of the $igarette corporations. The idea was, just light the $igarette once and you don’t even have to light it again, all you do is SIT-ERECT (ha ha) WITH YOUR $IGARETTE as in the 1980’s “L & M Moment” ads where you would see a well-dressed person sitting in an expensive house or nice garden holding a $iterect.
Today in the age of vaporizers and one-hitters anyone who still rolls a fat hot burning joint is a useful idiot for Big 2WackGo, because hot burning overdose smoking procedures maximize heat shock and carbon monoxide producing the stereotypical doper sit-around syndrome which the 2wackgo-linked prohibs loudly blame on the cannabis.
The increase of herb seizures cited by #37 Brian seems based on the gradual Obama program of easing the hated law enforcement assault on individual users, while driving up the price. It’s too bad about $600/oz. herb, but with your screened one-hitter you can divide that into 900+ single tokes or 66.66667 cents per toke. With one-toke skunkriefer, you’ve set up your morning for less than a Starbuckoffee– worth paying not to be arrested and blackpapered out of high-paying job markets. However, I still think a tipping point will be reached in the next year or two when the prices will in fact collapse, or, the same thing, 100 million American households will raise 2.2 plants each per year and totally escape scrutiny.
Priority: to bring this real change about most quickly, ATTACK FIRST the hot burning overdose $igarette smoking genocide format, the prevailing commercial myth (since about 1853) that you light up 500-mg., 700-mg., etc., every time you want a smoke (instead of, say, 25-mg. for a standard single minitoke and 10-mg. for a kief nanotoke).
I’ve had two back surgery’s and I can truely say that i hate them dam pills,smoking a little good marijuana is very helpful to me for pain,sleep,nausea,etc,im 56 it’s time to change a lot of things but can we would love to see pot legalized,I’ll still smoke anyway it way better that stupid pills people taking 15-20 different kinds of pills wtf,insane,and what is this crap war on drugs,marijuana is not a drug,God made it for us do ur history,
#44 Sam. Euphoric, euphoricated, euphoracized. Cannabis does produce a feeling of Euphoria. A feeling of intense well being, and happiness. I wonder why that’s illegal.
Cannabis should be legal to smoke. This goverment needs to find a new life and leave cannbis smoker alone!!!!!!!!!!!!We are not hurting anyone, except the goverment. They want any money they can get from us. I think the goverment is the one that is illegal. This is a free country, stop tying to turn it to a communist country. We know our rights ,and they are our rights.We are free to do what we want. Big goverment get out of our lives, iam sick of you telling us what to do and not do.
