"Hey, you'll have earned to right to smoke weed after you work in a stable, well-paid union job for 40 years, kids. Btw I only have a high-school degree lol." t. boomers.The Baby Boomer generation spent their youth "rebelling" against their parents by doing drugs, having "free love" and embracing every subversive Jewish ideology out there.
Then, they entered the labor market and got great-paying, stable jobs, and they voted en-masse for socialist programs and low taxes, ensuring future generations would be doomed to pay back massive debts while they enjoyed the comforts of free everything. All with promises of a cozy pension for their retirement, of course.
Now, these people are retiring early and going back to their old past time: getting high and enjoying the easy life. They can comfortably numb themselves to ignore the ravaged wasteland of a country America has become as a result of their choices and lifestyles.
Members of the generation that came of age in the era of marijuana are reaching for weed in their golden years.
A study published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence this month suggests that increasing numbers of middle aged and older adults are using marijuana — and using it a lot.
"Kids these days are so weak. I have no problem with drugs, unlike my good-for-nothing son who's high on opioids all the time."
The analysis comes from data gathered in the National Survey on Drug Use and Health from 2015 and 2016. About 9 percent of U.S. adults between ages 50 and 64 used marijuana in the the previous year, according to survey results. About 3 percent of people over 65 used the drug in that time period.
This appears to be up from years past. In 2013, the same survey reported that 7 percent of middle-aged Americans used marijuana in the previous year, and only 1.4 percent of people over 65.
Dr. Benjamin Han, an assistant professor of internal medicine at New York University School of Medicine and lead author of the study, says he was surprised to learn that many of the older Americans turning to marijuana are new converts to its use. About 45 percent of those over 65 who use the drug said they got started after the age of 21.
And boomers who use marijuana also seem to be using it more often. Study authors found that 5.7 percent of middle-aged respondents said they’d tried it in the past month.
"All these politicians I've voted for have done such a terrible job. Smoking weed is the only way to cope. Maybe Hillary can turn this around in 2020."
As laws surrounding marijuana use become more permissive in many states nationwide, more Americans of all ages seem to be giving the drug a try — some for recreation, and others in hopes of easing medical ailments.
Almost one quarter of Americans over 65 in the 2016 survey who had used marijuana in the previous year said they gotten the go-ahead from their doctors.
After they’ve had their gigantic sex, drug and rock n’ roll party in the 60s and 70s, boomers proceeded to make everything illegal for their kids. Whores, drugs, booze, talking to girls, swearing at Mexicans - everything is either illegal or frowned upon.
The hippies fully embraced a kind of radical puritanism, in the form of feminism, evangelical Christianity and political correctness as soon as they sobered up in the 80’s. Fun was outlawed.
The same people who had orgies in their teens tried to prevent their kids playing Dungeons and fucking Dragons.But now that these boomers are retiring, they lobby to have the laws and social norms changed again so they can enjoy smoking weed or whatever.
For medical purposes, of course.
Which means that only old people will be allowed to smoke it - boomers.
Look, I’m against taking weed. You should quit if you’re smoking it.
But the gall of these boomers is astounding.
Once the brown people are kicked out of America, anyone over 50 needs to have their right to vote revoked.
