What's the AARP Medical Marijuana Stance?

In March, the AARP Board of Directors approved a policy supporting the medical use of marijuana for older adults in states that have legalized it. The decision was based on the growing body of research suggesting marijuana may be helpful in treating certain medical conditions and symptoms. The policy also notes that decisions related to the use of medical marijuana should be made between a patient and a health care provider and appropriately balance clinical evidence of benefit and harm, the patient’s preferences and values, and any laws that may apply.

According to the policy, “AARP also supports further clinical research of medical use of cannabinoids to help alleviate both the symptoms of diseases and the side effects of the treatment for diseases.” The policy adds that “AARP believes the DEA’s [Drug Enforcement Administration] classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance deters the medical use and scientific study of cannabinoids” and calls on federal officials to examine options to allow more clinical research.

With AARP supporting medical marijuana, hopefully, more of its members will consider this natural medicine as an option to treat their chronic pains and anxiety with medical cannabis.

Note: Potency varies by strain and form, and it can often be tough to gauge a patient's tolerance. So before a patient engages in a cannabis-based medical treatment, he or she should consult their doctor and approach with caution; there’s limited scientific research and, as with any medication, the effects vary by user.
