I wonder if anyone will answer this.

Just a quick search, one survey says around 20% of Americans smoke marijuana. That's probably about right for The Villages. I'll add, my neighbor and I were talking the other day about our neighbors, how lucky we were, etc. And I commented that we were extremely lucky we don't smell pot, or even worse skunkweed in our neighborhood. My wife and I went to a pub in South Carolina this winter and I asked the server who was smoking skunkweed. She said noone, it's a draft beer that smell like that. 420 something. ... omg.

Low now but will probably grow in the future as more of those who were young in the 1960s start retiring to the Villages.

I am confident it is not 100%, because I don't partake... I can not answer for the rest though...

For the last 25 years though we lived on a lake in NC and we often would smell the potawami scent coming off of people sitting in boats out on the water...

Default Cbd

I use CBD cream for my sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome, does not contain THC, the ingredient in MJ. It works wonders.

I would, but not in Florida. The risk reward is not worth it. Although we are considering get a prescription for our "glaucoma".

It's on my bucket list -- but then so are so many other things that I'll probably not get to. Sigh!

..."in some form?" I'd say probably around 40-50%. CBD, which is derived from cannabis, is readily available and recommended by most geriatric physicians to help treat pain. Since most people living in the Villages are, by definition, geriatric - I'd say the percentage of people using it would be higher than the national average.
