Marijuana is “Booming” with the 50+ Crowd
Cannabis use among adults 50+ is up over 70%.
There are more than 6 million Baby Boomers living in Florida today. 60% of them have used marijuana already and that number is rising fast.
A joint study between NYU & Columbia University discovered that between 2006 and 2013, cannabis consumption increased by approximately 60% among those falling into the baby boomer generation – ages 50-to-64.
The study also showed that marijuana consumption among their parents (The Silent Generation, 65+) increased by a whopping 250%!
Overall, cannabis use among Americans 50+ is up over 70%.
In addition, one survey also showed marijuana use among adolescents has gone down over the last ten years, while it has nearly tripled among adults over 50.
