Seniors and Medical Marijuana
Medical Marijuana can offer benefits for dozens of conditions affecting all age groups. Recently I have been meeting with more and more senior citizens who themselves or their care giving family members want to know if medical marijuana can be safely added to their care plan. With the current nationwide attention on the opioid crisis, doctors and patients wish to rely less on dangerous drugs like hydrocodone (Vicodin), oxycodone (Percocet), and morphine but are left with many questions as to safer alternatives. Medical Marijuana is able to fill this void if used appropriately and can be a much safer alternative to the addicting and less effective opioid drugs for pain management and other ailments common with our aging population.
I came across an excellent resource I wanted to share from Aging.com. This article is an excellent introduction and answers many questions you or your loved one may not be comfortable asking.
