Poll: Majority of older Americans support medical marijuana

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly three-fourths of older Americans support legalizing marijuana for medical use, according to a poll done for the nation's largest advocacy group for seniors.
"The use of medical marijuana applies to many older Americans who may benefit from cannabis," said Ed Dwyer, an editor at AARP The Magazine, which will discuss medical marijuana in its March/April issue appearing in late January.
Generational lines also divided those who have smoked pot: Just 8% of those 70 and older admitted having lit up, compared with 58% of the 45-49 group, 37% of those between 50 and 59 and 15% of the 60-69 set.
