According to the statistics, the elderly in America use about 30 percent of all prescription drugs. That means that they might benefit from a more natural alternative to their medicine. Unfortunately, senior people are rather judgmental about cannabis due to a life-long exposure to the War on Drugs.

Former Football Superstar Ricky Williams Promotes Marijuana As Effective Painkiller for NFL Players
​Ricky Williams is on the list of the most recognizable and famous football players in the whole world. In 1998, the running back from the University of Texas won the Heisman Trophy. Ricky Williams is the guy the New Orleans Saints traded for, and the price was really high—they gave up every one of their picks in the NFL draft of 1999 (plus three drafts in 2000). This is considered to be one of the most irrational and infamous draft moves in the whole history of NFL.
