AARP in Canada Offers Cannabis Discounts
by Dan Larkin.
I just found out that AARP in Canada offers cannabis discounts! Okay, so technically they’re CARP (Canadian Association of Retired Persons) but whatever. The cool thing is that their members can get 20% discounts on medical cannabis.
“We have been polling our members from time to time, and we are certain that they are comfortable with cannabis treatment. We have partnered with Canopy Growth, a cannabis producer so that our members can benefit from strains of medical marijuana by giving a 20% off discount,”Moses Znaimer, president of CARP
There are over 300,000 CARP members in Canada. Those members now have access to a ton of health information about cannabis.
ZoomerMedia is helping CARP members wade through all of the various cannabis rules, laws, guidelines and more. Now that Canada has fully legalized adult-use cannabis, there are a lot of people in need of help. Especially Canadian boomers and seniors who are turning to medical cannabis for the first time.
ZoomerMedia, who targets baby boomers and seniors, will offer a channel called “ONE: GET FIT”.
We originate a channel called ONE: GET FIT that is ramping up its focus on cannabis right now. It currently specializes in yoga, meditation, healthy living and cooking, but we are turning it into more of a marijuana information channel, with various program components, short and long, with the overall positioning of “Cannabis for Beginners.”Moses Znaimer, president of CARP
ZoomerMedia relies on its partnership with another Canadian media company, Civilized Worldwide, to provide the cannabis content.
Now that AARP in Canada offers cannabis discounts, when will it happen in the US?
So, AARP, what are you waiting for? We need you to use your lobbying muscle to help legalize cannabis in the US. Then, see what you can do to help boomers and seniors afford cannabis. It’s the right thing to do and now you have a model to follow.
