Addictions and Cannabis – HIGHLIFE Magazine®

Americans over-65 only account for 14 percent of the nation’s population, but they use more than 30 percent of all prescription drugs. Medicare saved more than $165 million in 2013 on prescription drugs in D.C. and 17 states that allowed cannabis to be used as medicine. If every state in the nation legalized medical marijuana, would save more than $468 million per year on pharmaceuticals for disabled Americans and those 65 and older.
