Cannabis use and older adults

Cannabis use is on the rise among older adults, thanks in part to an aging population that has more relaxed attitudes about the drug than do their parents’ generation. The increase in consumption — for medical and recreational reasons — has some researchers concerned, since there are few U.S. studies on long-term effects. There’s still a lot we don’t know about cannabis or its major components, CBD and THC, and their effects on older adults. 

Liz Seegert has some suggestions for story ideas, sources and questions to ask.
