The seniors were also asked open-ended questions by Northwell so they could elaborate on their experience with medicalcannabis, a section they used to express overwhelmingly positive reviews.
“I was on Percocet and replaced it with medicalmarijuana. Thank you, thank you, thank you,” said one respondent. Another claimed that “I was on opiates for 15 years, and six months on marijuana, and off both completely.”
Other studies have similarly found an increase in cannabis use among those from older age brackets. Another survey of 47,000 people found that people 65 years or older are now using cannabis 250 percent more than they used to.
