Can We Go To Grandma's House Every Sunday?

Did Kathy sign me as a member of AARP so I could learn to relax?

In her 88 years, Florence Siegel has learned how to relax: A glass of red wine. A crisp copy of the New York Times, if she can wrest it from her husband. Some classical music, preferably Bach. And every night like clockwork, she lifts a pipe to her lips and smokes marijuana.

Long a fixture among young people, use of the country’s most popular illicit drug is now growing among the AARP set, as the massive generation of baby boomers who came of age in the 1960s and ’70s grows older.

"Hey, kids, we're going to grandma's house."

And I would be willing to bet that Grandma has some terrific snacks to quell the munchies.
