125 Year Old Pot Smoker Claims Weed Was Her Secret To Longevity

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A 125-year-old woman, said to be one of the oldest women in India, died at her home in Orissa, her family said Sunday. Fulla Nayak claimed that smoking cannabis every day was her secret to long life.

Fulla Nayak, a resident of Kanarpur village in the coastal district of Kendrapada, died of old age complications Saturday.

According to her 72-year-old grandson, Fulla was 125. But as per a voter photo identity card issued by the government in 1995 she was 120 years.

The grand old woman lived in a small mud-walled thatched house in Kanarpur, about 25 km from the district headquarters. She is survived by two of her four daughters and around two dozen relatives.

Her eldest daughter, Jamuna, 92, lives in the same village. Her husband died at the age of 50.

Fulla was in the news when her grandson Narayan Nayak claimed last week that she could be the oldest woman living in the world. He had said that he would write to the Guinness book authorities to record the claim.

Fulla was known for her love of smoking ganja and cigars and palm juice. She also loved steaming hot tea.

She had never suffered any debilitating ailment throughout her life. Except for her weak eyesight, Fulla maintained good health and used to walk without support.

      So the dea terrorists are pretty much more harmful than cannabis…. I CANT wait for the DEA to be labled as the terrorists they are…

      Breaking into peoples homes and shooting their pets in front of their children for small amounts of cannabis… That will go down in the history books for sure…

    • colossus

      yes weed is not a damaging factor to your health its wonderful for relaxing muscles reliving stress and benefits a large number of disease and disorders doctors often over prescribe medication for, its a quality of life thing and its a lot better to end your day with a smoke than a drink of any alcohol. its natural and the fact its illegal is absurd. its viewed upon as a drug and should be noted as a medication.

    • spright

      one battle at a time.
      everyone is not interested in this one. but you are or why are you here?
      weed is from nature.
      use at your own discretion.
      it has always been a medicine.
      so why not?

      It’s very simple. It lowers your heart rate therefore increases life expectancy.

      Watch this, it’s a docu about hemp/cannabis, and the (neverending) war on drugs.

    • jarlen

      With use of cannabis , they can´t promote their cancerpandemia ( Cancer by design )….. peace

    • banjoboy

      man made booze god made grass , who do you trust

    • HDThoreau

      Cyanide is also from nature, as is poison ivy. As are asteroids. You can smoke all the pot you want. Nobody cares. Just don’t get upset when the revolution comes and you get torn in half by a person with a normally functioning brain.

      • carveorstarve

        what’s normal supposed to be hmmm?

        • Pateriot

          She’s probably 50 years old. She just looks 125 and can’t remember how old she is.

      • someone who cares

        You are a putz! If normal is freaking out during stressful times and tearing someone
        in half, I don’t want to be normal! Normal functioning brain? I see you forgot to take
        your meds, which could probably be replace by some pot derivative. Anti-psychotics

      The difference between medicine and drugs is the dose.

      • wizard

        A drug is any kind of substance that alters body functions upon intake. A medicine, on the other hand. is a classification of drug that only alters body function to the consumer’s health benefit.

      To HDThoreau: you have stated the obvious…there are things from nature that are naturally harmless, and some are lethal. However some are in between. Weed happens to be in between…it is potent and must be handled with care, and like anything else it can be abused… is completely stupid to discredit weed just because some natural substances happen to be lethal. There is a spectrum of possibilities. I feel sorry for everyone dependent
      t on prescription meds alcohol when the revolution comes.

    • colossus

      any one discrediting weed after this has little brain function themselves
      this woman was 125 years old and toked all day every day.
      no1 has EVER EVER EVER in history died from a marijuana over-dose.
      the one factor that has made it illegal was the fact hemp is a competitor in the rope industry as it is a lot stronger of a material. back at the founding of our nation the rope and cotton industry did not like that and cannabis and hemp plants were prevented from growing under the ludicrous denial of our law making government.

    • rdigital

      @asshat i’m sure i wouldnt even be interested in truth if i didnt smoke weed.

      but how the hell do you smoke palm juice!

    • anonymous

      George Burns lasted forever too. So this is hardly evidence that smoking is good for you.

    • Anonymous

      I hate to tell you this Barracuda but the oldest living person in the world that could prove their age was 114. That person died a while back. If this person can’t prove their age this story is so much hot air.

      I know that many guys here have an opinion to improve their health, so do I!
      In the past days, I really found it difficult to choose one or two in so many health products in the market. Fortunately, I found this web, it really works. I share it to you here: om . Save much time!!!

      Naysayers are entitled to their opinions. But the rest of it do not have to believe them. Which would you rather do; ingest pot and live to be healthy late into your 90s? Or take all the pharmaceuticals prescribed (knowing all the side-affects which can occur) and keep having to change medications or add new ones to counter-act the side affects of the first ones? The pharmaceutical companies haven’t CURED anything since the polio vaccine… and now we know that about 1/3 of the kids who were given the polio vaccine were infected with an insidious Rhesus Monkeys virus, because the vaccine was grown on cells from one of the monkeys’ organs. This virus attacks the immune systems of those people in different ways – Rheumatoid arthritis, other kinds of immune deficiencies at early ages, and on and on… So, for you who still want to believe that the DEA and your Rx suppliers have your best interests at heart, I feel so sorry for you.

      • ashewing

        OMG Barbie, I joined just to comment on your post!! You are so right!!! They dont want Americans smoking pot for this reason. People will live longer and big Pharma’s pockets will get smaller. What a wicked world we live in controlled by the FDA (federal death administration).

      Was she related to Willie Nelson?

      Some say he’s 150 years old!

      And he LOVES cannabis.

    • m_astera

      Willie Nelson only looks 150 years old. Hard living will do that to you.

      I love how Christians spew their nonsense everywhere something is happening they don’t believe God would approve of. Put down the Bible and try reading another book, you might learn something! Take your and put it in your pipe and smoke it! bunch of crazziness!

    • nowhereman

      I am sorry but i dont know what bible you got this stuff from i read it many times and it amazes me the endless false information out there concerning the bible and quran. folks READ THEM YOURSELVES you will find that there are so many people misleading so many others

    • nowhereman

      sorry i was refering to the imagines prophesey distributor anyhow the reason it is not legal is because they cannot control the population with it pot is a natural medicine helpful for so many things and as a prior writer stated the plant is also useful in industry pot could save our economy as an export product I am serious about this THINK ABOUT IT reform needs to be soon we do not MAKE anything in this country anymore this plant holds a key to a HUGE industry medicinal and textile

    • IanG

      @sally2dicks It is nonsense to suggest that the rope industry wanted hemp banned. Hemp was their main raw material! Have you tried to tie a knot in a nylon rope, and compared it to any proper rope? Hemp was banned DESPITE the rope industry, not because of it.

      @ nowhereman Those prophesies are not from the Bible. They are just from some white supremacist loon who is a false prophet, and tries talking in a MYSTICAL style that will influence gullible people who think anyone who talks to a group as-if he (or she) was their parent, or a great, old wise man, is someone who should be believed unquestioningly. Those things do not equal Christian! It could just as easily have been a sufi. Most of those white-supremacists are not Christians, they are believers in norse pagan fables! They would rather follow Wotan or Woden and promote racial hatred than follow the Christian message that “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Of course, that requires people to have become one, in Christ Jesus! If you are opposing Christ, like these people who serve only themselves, then people still maintain divisions and conflicts.


      Don’t give Anericans this to smoke. They may live too long.

    • VoiceofReason

      Plenty of Centarians that smoked & drank their whole life too. Nothing surprising here. The thing about drinking & smoking cigarettes though is that the people who do that are usually hard workers & they drink & smoke to relieve the stress.

      Pot smokers just end up not wanting to work & looking for gov. handouts. We also have the issue of exposing kids to this mind altering drug during their most important developmental years, & I would think that ppl smelling up a rental house or apartment would be a major issue too. You can’t rent those without completely painting every room & then you are still stuck with the smell in the ceiling.

      Anyone who argues that it isn’t mind altering is forgetting the fact that it is described as getting high. The very definition that pot smokers use themselves proves that it alters your mind at least temporarily & I’m almost positive it eventually destroys your cognitive skills.

      Just ask yourself how smart do you think this woman is in the picture above?

      • someone who cares

        You are a putz too! As to the cognitive skills of most pot smokers? Next time you rent your apartment, tell them to smoke outside, duh!? What [email protected] arguments! Take a look at a hard drinker and ask how their cognitive skills are.

    • crabby

      snoop dogg’s grandmama..

      Guinness might want to take note. The news here, old as history, is found in NKJV Genesis 6:3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive[a] with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” When anyone says someday people will live to 150 or 200 years, you can use the words of Jesus, “Surely you err for you know not the Scripture”. God said this just before he drowned a wicked world full of people who were living almost a thousand years. A handful of people survived Noah’s flood (Genesis 7:13). Noah lived 950 years, 13 generations later, Joseph died in Egypt at 110 Years of age. The Declaration concerning the age of men by God was complete. Even Moses, the leader of the Children of Israel out of bondage, died when he was 120 Years old. Deuteronomy 34:7 Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished. God did not go back on his declaration, even for Moses.
