Medical Cannabis Support Group for Seniors
First Sunday of each month from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
If you’re over 50 and a medical patient using cannabis, join Harborside’s Senior Citizen Support Group the first Sunday of each month for helpful tips and encouragement from other patients
Do any of these apply to you?
- You have started to use medical cannabis and are faced with opposition from family, friends, or others.
- You have tried prescription pills and other treatments for your health issues, but you need something different.
- You want to use medical cannabis, but you have questions about safe access, transporting it, or how it is used.
- You are interested in improving your quality of life with medical cannabis, but you don’t know how to begin.
Senior Citizen Support Group PurposeThe senior citizen support group is designed to educate patients age 50 and over about the role medical cannabis can play in their lives, and how to figure out its most effective use for themselves, and find support from peers. It also supports seniors whose family, friends or doctors are not in favor of medical cannabis.
