This is an article about baby boomers using pot to ease the aches of aging. I don't smoke pot but I thought this was funny that this age group is still smoking it.

  • I have not read the article but I know a lot of people say that they use pot to ease pain. I used to smoke pot and while it was relaxing, it did not take away any pain. I don't really care who smokes pot and why, I just don't see it as a pain reliever personally. But hey if it's working for people then good for them.

  • I kind of doubt it's for pain relief. That just sounds like something to say for the camera.

  • Marijuana can numb pain receptors causing the illusion of pain relief. Personally, I have found that it does wonders for migraines. Hail baby boomers!
