Seniors Give Medical Marijuana High Marks in New Survey

Many senior citizens feel apprehensive about trying medical marijuana for the first time. But once they do, they’re smitten, a new survey shows.

For the research, 150 seniors who had used medical marijuana were given a 20-question survey to gauge their satisfaction with the drug. Overall, they reported a sizable decrease in pain levels after using marijuana and less dependence on opioid painkillers as a result. Nine out of 10 said they would recommend medical marijuana to others.

The results of the study were recently presented at the American Geriatrics Society meeting in Orlando, FL. Read more about the findings here
