My mom wants to get high!

So my moms parents both died of complications due to Alzheimer's. Now, my mom is really afraid of getting. There are new studies that show marijuana staves symptoms off and she wants to get high. She is turning 70.

What would you think or do?

Your mom is cool--get high with her! Or at least go get her some. That's my old age plan, as well (can't do it now d/t possibility of piss tests at work.)

Re: My mom wants to get high!

Just keep her away from eatables. That would be too much at her age. She's no Tommy Chong.
Let her try it. No harm really unless she starts telling you stories you may not want to hear

Re: My mom wants to get high!

Your mom was in her early 20s in the 1960s. I'm guessing this wouldn't be her first time. I've never done it myself but if pot helps with pain or illness I say light it up.

I'd get my mom some crack and meth and tell her it was pot. My mom knows nothing about drugs, she'd never know the difference. Once she becomes a strung out junkie, I'll tell her about the old switcheroo and we'll both have a good laugh....or at least I will.

Re: My mom wants to get high!

Similar situation happened to me in the 80's when I was visiting my family at Christmas. My aunt, uncle, a cousin were at my parents and they were aware of my personal "habits". One evening they kept bugging me to let them try smoking some, so I decided what the hell?
These were exclusively non-smokers and their reaction was pretty funny. They all Bogarted the joint and kept asking when they would feel it. Suddenly my strait-laced uncle started quietly laughing, and gradually got louder and louder until he embarrassed himself and stopped, with a huge smile on his face. By that time almost all of them were giddy and chuckling. They were buzzed. My father, always a beer and a shot guy, was the only one who refused to partake and he got hell from them, along with a timid threat of divorce.
Never regretted doing it and it was repeated several times over the years. No one asked me to buy them any as they only wanted it when I was there, celebrating the holidays. Fond memories of the folks who've all passed away.

A friend of mine, who I would have to consider a pot-head (with a Doctorate- really!), has a mother who smokes and even her grandmother was a serious smoker while living through the 1920-30's Jazz Age. I guess they're genetically predisposed. This shit been around so long it's ABOUT time the criminality is being eased.

I think I read on Yahoo news recently that 70 is the new 40. Sounds hot to me! Plus, 70 year olds have needs (wink, wink) too!

I cannot argue against this.

My dad was recently diagnosed with cancer. Essentially 80% of his bone marrow is cancerous, but it is very treatable, etc. I've been telling him he ought to try it when Chemo starts, and even before because there are good studies that show it actually helps fight the cancer as well as the pain. He isn't up for it yet, but I may end up getting him to try it in the future.

Get your mom some damned weed, already. The idea that it is illegal while alcohol is legal is an absolute joke. Weed is so incredibly harmless compared to any prescription medication. And it might help her. If my dad wanted it, I'd get it one way or another, even if I didn't live in WA.

Re: My mom wants to get high!

I don't smoke. It's illegal because big alcohol pays lobbyist (they have been for decades) in Washington to keep it illegal. They realized a long time ago that something you could grow in your own backyard - virtually for free - would put them out of business. Politicians and Lawyers are the reason we can't have nice things... fuck all of them.
