Senior citizens suffering from a number of ailments in Orange County are asking for marijuana to be a priority in their daily routine and treatment. Even though medical cannabis in California has been around since 1996, the fight to limit cannabis in California has been ongoing. Seniors in the community of Laguna Woods could be the missing link to driving support for marijuana over the top. A majority of the seniors who grew up in this community are from the baby boomer generation and hippy era where marijuana was viewed as a gateway drug to harder substances. Now that marijuana has become accepted as a viable treatment for certain medical conditions, the percentages of the older generations that support marijuana are beginning to increase like never before.
