UCLA Longevity Center: Cannabis, Aging & Major Life Crises with Dr. Small and Dr. Cooper

During the past two decades, we have observed a tremendous increase in marijuana use in people age 50 and older. The scientific evidence points to the potential benefits of cannabis use for people suffering from chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and other medical conditions, yet limited data are available to guide use among older adults.
