Nation's Seniors Want To Borrow Your Bong

"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. Food tastes better, music sounds better, sex is more enjoyable."
-Marijuana advocate Keith Stroup on the growing number of those aged 50 or older who admit to using the drug. However, Dr. William Dale, chief of geriatrics and palliative medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center, cautions that the elderly need to be careful that they don't get dizzy and take a fall, because once you break a hip at that age it's a pretty swift procession to the boneyard.

Yeah but I bet those super laconic bingo games are pretty relaxing: "B…..dude…..B….thirty…four…"

When I was in college my mom bought some pot from my roommate. It was unbelievably awkward for all involved.

I want to buy some pot from your mom.

I keep trying to convince my parents that it's the perfect time for them to experiment with drugs. I sent my mom some pot cookies for Mother's Day, and they invited some friends over for a particularly enjoyable dinner party. But I wussed out on sending the mushroom chocolates for Father's Day.

Dr. Dale is holding out.

At the very least, maybe your kids would spend more time with you. Depending on how generous you are.

Sounds like a losing proposition all the way around.

When the olds fall and break a hip it is the other way around. The hip was already broke and that is what caused the fall. Not that it makes much difference because they are still fucked.

I told my wife, "As soon as the last kid is off to college, I'm going to start smoking pot again." My youngest is two.
