5 California Active Adult Communities for Cannabis Users


All across the country, recreational and medical cannabis is redefining the way that many people treat their conditions, minimize pain, and simply relax. It is currently legal to use cannabis recreationally in nine states (plus D.C.) and it’s also decriminalized in 13 more states. However, California remains near the forefront when it comes to the normalization of cannabis use.

That’s especially true for active adults. The 55 and over demographic is the fastest-growing demographic when it comes to marijuana use, increasing by 53 percent between 2013 and 2014 according to one study. In another, it noted a 71 percent increase in cannabis use among those 50 and older between 2006 and 2016.

That trend is currently playing out in some active adult communities across the state. While acceptance remains case-by-case, residents in these communities are exploring the possibilities that come with cannabis use and set the tone for potential residents looking to live somewhere where they can partake as well. Here are five communities for cannabis users to consider.
