Standing 4 feet, 8 inches tall, she doesn’t look like much. But at age 98, Jamaica‘s Melita Gordon can probably smoke most folks under the table. Melita Gordon is a 98-year-old-woman, and despite protestations from her family, she’s been smoking weed for 88years of her life, from age 15 to the present day.
And she won’t stop smoking ganja until she’s dead because stopping could kill her. “When mi goes a doctor he say him ah tell mi fi to stop smoke marijuana, because if mi stop, him a go lose mi,” Gordon told thepage.com.ng
Gordon’s lifelong habit is happily endorsed by her primary care doctor, whose view is that Gordon’s journey to 100 years might be cut short if she lays down her pipe.
Gordon, along with her doctor, speculate that her commitment to cannabis may be partly responsible for her longevity.
