Ever sat and wondered what the secret to a long and healthy life is?
Well wonder no more, because one grandmother reckons that she has the answer… cannabis. Yes, Carol Francey, 70, said she has been smoking weed for five decades and ‘feels as fit as a fiddle’.
In fact, she loves the plant so much, she made the decision to throw away all of her medication, and grow cannabis in her garden instead. Carol, who openly allowed her son to smoke the drug as a teenager, is an active member of the group Grannies for Green which campaigned for marijuana legalisation in Canada.
She claims the turning point in her life was when her son Jovian, then 17, was caught smoking weed at school. She then decided to actively campaign for a change in the law to make cannabis use legal – which will take place in July 2018 – and has enjoyed health benefits as a result.
