They take a few epic bong rips before waxing poetic on the merits of ironing, mistake a vaporizer for a sex toy, and stonily lose track of whatever thoughts they were briefly attempting to articulate.
Have you ever wanted to get your grandmother stoned, but were too embarrased to ask? These surrogate grannies got together to smoke some weed, so you can enjoy the experience of seeing a high senior without having to awkwardly pass your own grandma a doobie.
In Grandmas Smoking Weed for the First Time, three senior women who’ve never experimented with cannabis before, take a few epic bong rips before waxing poetic on the merits of ironing, mistake a vaporizer for a sex toy, and stonily lose track of whatever thoughts they would briefly attempt to articulate. The video was shot in Washington state, which recently legalized recreational cannabis use, so there’s no need for anyone to call the cops on these fresh senior stoners.
As marijuana becomes more socially acceptable, new demographics like these elderly Eisenhower-era suburban housewives, will inevitably begin exploring the psychoactive herb. Perhaps they’ll discover the rewards of the ganj may outweigh the drawbacks and begin to get over their fears of Reefer Madness-style hysteria.
“When I do it, I really feel like the muscles here in my neck seem not as tight,” says one of the stoned grandmothers. “And I see a lot of benefit for it.”
The drug appears to be spread — for instance, senior citizens at a retirement community in Southern California are petitioning to have a pot dispensary installed on site. Not all seniors will want to smoke weed, so luckily every day there are more and more wildly creative new edible choices. Once stoned, these groovy grannies can sit back in the recliner to watch the acclaimed pot delivery web-series High Maintenance or truly embrace diversity with one of these multicultral stoner comedies.
In the words of one of the elderly tokers: “I’d do it again, if I could get this bag of chips open.”
