Marijuana Popularity

Marijuana Popularity
Old People Weed 750x421 Marijuana PopularityI never thought marijuana popularity would have reached such heights, but I see how wrong I was in my assumption. Considering its status as a rather taboo subject, it has flourished beautifully and has become a hot button topic. I have not been into the marijuana culture for very long. I recently became more heavily interested in it, within the last five years or so, but have been enamored with it and its legalization for more than the obvious reasons. I have seen it being consumed by groups that I would have never thought likely before. I am by no means small minded, but the old adage remains very true: never judge a book by its cover. Around the World in a Toke- Marijuana worldwide is used by 119 million to 224 million, eighteen and older of course, people across all age ranges, ethnicities, and religions, and cultures. The most prevalent use has been in Australia and New Zealand, with the United States and Canada coming in a close second. Italy, France, Spain, and the Czech Republic come in third, while countries like Nigeria, Madagascar, and Zambia were all in close competition for fourth place. There is also no indication that the popularity of the drug will be slowing down any time soon. Baby Boomers Partaking- Along with the use of cannabis being popular by youth ages 18-25, there have been spikes in use by the baby boomer generation over the last five years. Their medicinal use of the drug has been spurred by their accompanying pains caused by arthritis, muscle pains, and waning appetite in their twilight years. Surveys have shown that boomers between the age of 55-59 more than tripled in 2002 and will continue to be on the rise as boomers born between 1945 and 1964 continue to age, retire, and require healthier alternatives in medication. Marijuana popularity will continue to increase as legalization spreads. California and Oregon have been rumored to legalize for recreational use within the next few years, and popularity of the drug will only continue to rise. Good news for our community, tax base, and most importantly, our ailing patients.
