New Study Shows Strong Spike In Marijuana Use Among Baby Boomers

A new study that surveyed over 47,000 American adults 50 and older, has discovered a rather intriguing trend among America’s baby boomers – they love getting high.

Dr. Benjamin Han, of the Division of Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care at NYU Langone Medical Center (NYULMC) said that “with the increased availability of legalized marijuana, there is an urgent need to understand the prevalence of its use and also its effects among older generations.”
