Senior citizens and baby boomers are increasingly starting medical marijuana businesses to restore retirement nest eggs.

Many Baby Boomers are starting medical marijuana businesses as a way to overcome the extremely bleak employment outlook, and restore their lost retirement nest eggs.

Seniors have been hit particularly hard by the downturn in the economy. Their retirement funds have been decimated and social security is no longer keeping up with the cost of living. With few options available to them, more and more senior citizens are starting medical marijuana business as a viable way to make ends meet.

“In the last few years there has been an upward swing in people coming into the business, in both age and affluence,” said Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the DC-based National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). “They are either retirees or boomers seeing a chance for mid-life career change and grabbing it”

The internet is helping to make it easy for Baby Boomers and Retirees to learn how to start a Medical Marijuana business. Hempgard University is offering an affordable online e-course which teaches how to start and operate the following types of medical marijuana businesses:

-Medical Marijuana Dispensary
-Medical Marijuana Delivery Service
-Medical Marijuana Edibles Business
-Medical Marijuana Commercial Grow

The medical marijuana industry can be an especially good fit for Boomers and Seniors; just as a function of age, older people are more likely to know people afflicted with the conditions for which doctors can recommend marijuana. These conditions include arthritis, cancer, glaucoma, chronic pain, persistent muscle spasms, etc.. This gives many older people a really good potential patient (client) base, to build their medical marijuana businesses from.

“We have made medical marijuana business training easier to obtain,” said Liz Cortese, Student Services, Hempgard University. “Through the comprehensive e-course, boomers and senior citizens can easily and affordably learn the medical marijuana business from the comfort of their home, with out having to travel to a class or seminar. The e-course saves them time and money, so they can get their businesses up and running.”

Who would have thought Grandma and Grandpa would be using their green thumbs to grow a Ganja garden?
