Meet the Aquadettes
These California Girls have character.
75-year-old Margo Bouer reflects on growing old, using marijuana, and her synchronized swim team, the Aquadettes.
In this film they travel south to Leisure World, where their lens finds a lovely group of ladies who, in retirement, find fitness and friendship through synchronized swimming.
The regular aquabatics practice helps maintain their health and strength, with members suffering arthritis, joint replacements, and other health challenges. They stay active with the Aquadettes; for Margo, marijuana has been another blessing on the side.
Emotional without being condescending, the ladies are upfront about the reality of aging and enthusiastic about what they do. Watching this is a splendid use of ten minutes, and we highly recommend you do so.
The biggest users of our medical system are senior citizens, and it should come as no surprise that when medical marijuana first became available in California, seniors were some of the first to try it out. Seniors found that medical marijuana works on a large variety of illnesses that modern medicine has yet to effectively treat.
Aging can be a graceful, sociable, and active thing. And marijuana, appropriately used, can be a healthy addition for older citizens. It’s not something unique and special and secret for the young anymore.
