Should Grandma Smoke Pot?


It sounds like a throwaway joke in an Adam Sandler movielet’s get Nana high!—but Philly native Robert Platshorn is deadly serious about his mission: Giving senior citizens expanded access to the sticky icky icky. Platshorn is the man behind The Silver Tour, which advocates teaching the elderly about the benefits of marijuana, and now he’s produced a short documentary called “Should Grandma Smoke Pot?” to carry that word to a broader audience. Platshorn says the doc will play in two television markets with his target constituencies: The retirees of West Palm Beach, Florida and the stoners of Eugene, Oregon.
