Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better.
His blog at BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others.

Old Hippie has a commercial flavor that the original “for real” hippie of the sixties did not have. My take on cannabis use is that it does no harm to others and it is not socially dangerous, so state power should leave it alone—as John Stuart Mill would argue. Old Hippie’s book provides some useful information in case you use medical marijuana. The writing is good and the info provided seems trustworthy.
