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 Purpose

The 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.

Senior Citizen Support Group Focus

The struggles of senior living are best understood by fellow seniors. The focus of the support group is to provide a comfortable, empathic, and supportive environment where seniors can share experiences with using medical cannabis and life coping skills. Our group aims to educate and inform seniors about the exciting discoveries concerning cannabis use in the healthcare field.

Support group topics may include:

  • The benefits of medical cannabis
  • Safe access
  • How to talk with your physician about medical cannabis
  • How to transport your medical cannabis legally
  • Keeping your medical cannabis locked up and away from children
  • Talking with family and friends about medical cannabis use
  • Life coping skills
  • Healthcare
  • Resource sharing

We welcome seniors 50 and over to our support group which is held the first Sunday of each month from 10:15 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. If you have questions, call 888-994-2726. Please sign up for the support group at the Harborside Health Center reception office.

We Choose to Not Use the Term "Medical Marijuana"

While you may have heard medical cannabis referred to as medical marijuana, at Harborside we do not use that term. William Randolph Hearst utilized the word marijuana, as did his political allies, to promote harmful stereotypes about both the Mexican and Black populations. Smokers of marijuana were frequently caricatured as crazed and violent black men or lazy, thieving Mexicans.

We use the term medical cannabis rather than medical marijuana because we choose not to associate the positive healing properties of cannabis with the negative, racist undertones of the word marijuana. To use that term would passively support the wrong and hurtful notions of Hearst and his allies, whereas we believe that cannabis is medicine, and is meant for people of all colors and walks of life.
