In all, 23% of adults over 50 who drink alcohol reported that they routinely had three or more drinks in one sitting

If I have three or less drinks, I don't even count that as drinking.

"As cannabis use for medical and recreational reasons rises in older adults, Fernandez says special attention is needed to this kind of interaction."

Why's that?

I've never seen anything in the literature to indicate any dangerous interaction between cannabis and alcohol.

I'm 70 and I think I have lost my taste for booze. In the beginning of August 2020, I decided to give my liver a break and stopped drinking for awhile. Approx. the last week of April of 2021, I purchased a handle of bourbon and finished it by May 2 (typical speed for me) and came to the realization that I didn't enjoy it at all. So I have stopped again and really don't think I will restart anytime in the near future. Luckily, Illinois has legal weed, so that occupies my evenings (Give me a break, you have to have a little something to properly enjoy the Johnny Sex Cup playoffs)

Meh, I had risky drinking patterns before lockdown too.
