Now this is a retirement plan!
« on: August 24, 2015, 01:56:11 AM »
Wasn't sure if this fell on the side of mustachian or anti (she plans on using her windfall for a convertible and a cruise) but at 81 you get a lot more leeway...

Either way the first sentence says it all - Florence Childs, 81, is banking on legal marijuana for her retirement plan.

I'd call that a lottery win rather than a retirement plan. Most lottery winners go broke, but hopefully with her past retirement experience she'll know better!
