Boomers, Booming Everything By Michael Ferguson
The 1960s babies grew up to be genuine monsters, happily over-turning traditional morality and institutions, as part of their social justice worldview. Every horrible social agenda we now have has come from them, and of course, they have been manipulated all the way, but have done so as willing tools of their overlords. They now have complete rule over sectors such as the media and universities, which are little more than cultural Marxist thought control factories. Finally, as the boomers fall comfortably into retirement, they are going back to something that they have loved all of their lives: dope.
“Members of the generation that came of age in the era of marijuana are reaching for weed in their golden years. A study published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence this month suggests that increasing numbers of middle aged and older adults are using marijuana — and using it a lot. The analysis comes from data gathered in the National Survey on Drug Use and Healthfrom 2015 and 2016. About 9 percent of U.S. adults between ages 50 and 64 used marijuana in the previous year, according to survey results. About 3 percent of people over 65 used the drug in that time period. This appears to be up from years past. In 2013, the same survey reported that 7 percent of middle-aged Americans used marijuana in the previous year, and only 1.4 percent of people over 65.
Dr. Benjamin Han, an assistant professor of internal medicine at New York University School of Medicine and lead author of the study, says he was surprised to learn that many of the older Americans turning to marijuana are new converts to its use. About 45 percent of those over 65 who use the drug said they got started after the age of 21. And boomers who use marijuana also seem to be using it more often. Study authors found that 5.7 percent of middle-aged respondents said they'd tried it in the past month. As laws surrounding marijuana use become more permissive in many states nationwide, more Americans of all ages seem to be giving the drug a try — some for recreation, and others in hopes of easing medical ailments.”
Having helped destroy traditional society, the one that they were born into, this primarily Leftist generation are going out in style, doped out of their minds. Perhaps it is for the best, because other generations are full of resentment at the way the boomers have drank resources and plundered social capital. Who knows what laws will be put in place when the boomers, and that includes me, are long retired, and in need of medical attention, but the other generations rule and make the laws about medical care. That would be just too bad for us if the lolly jar is ultimately empty.
