Planned retirement communities in America will never be the same as baby boomers start asking to bring along their marijuana, CBD and even a green house to grow it. Some of the folks who design and build these desirable communities are already planning for it.

One leading firm Mosaic Design Studio founded by Lisa Cini did a large study of more than 11-thousand baby boomers and found 83% using cannabis for recreational and medical reasons. Lisa is an aging and author of Boom The Baby Boomers Guide to Leveraging Technology so that you can preserve your independent lifestyle and thrive.

“I have to tell you that I was surprised by the survey,” she says. “The boomers just really didn’t care whether somebody found out if they were using cannabis for their health reasons or for recreational use. And that was pretty shocking to me.”

From an anecdotal standpoint she says, “boomers friends will tell her that if someone is going to make take away my pot and make me sign in and out and not allow me to have my pet. I’m not going into that kind of environment. This is not the silent generation of World War 2 generation that marches in step and does what everybody says they should do.”

Her study included all 50 states There were over 11000 legitimate responses from over, in the boomer age group, and she believes it really speaks for itself. She is conducting the test again and this time want to survey gender, which was not included in the first study.

Lisa Cini has another prediction and advice. Don’t be overwhelmed by technology or about what’s coming down the pike. Pick your lane if you like. If you read books, then read books. If you like to watch movies, watch movies. You don’t have to do everything. Choose what works for you and then get into it. Keep an mind open about the possibilities.

She says, “I didn’t think that I was going to have a phone that acted as a computer five years ago. I didn’t think any of that kind of thing. Don’t be overwhelmed by technology or about what’s coming down the pike. One of the things that I wish boomers would get into a little bit more are podcasts. I think they’re fantastic. And it’s an incredible way to learn and discover new things.
