Morgan Freeman In Favor Of Legalization
It seems like as each day passes, another celebrity comes out in favor of legalizing cannabis.
Morgan Freeman, the man you wish narrated your thoughts opened up to the Daily Beast that only weed can take away the pain he gets from his fibromyalgia:
He pauses, and points to the glove-aid jutting out from his left suit sleeve. “Marijuana has many useful uses,” he says. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana. They’re talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they’ve discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life. That right there, to me, says, ‘Legalize it across the board!
They used to say, ‘You smoke that stuff, boy, you get hooked!” says a chuckling Freeman. “My first wife got me into it many years ago. How do I take it? However it comes! I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it! This movement is really a long time coming, and it’s getting legs—longer legs. Now, the thrust is understanding that alcohol has no real medicinal use. Maybe if you have one drink it’ll quiet you down, but two or three and you’re f*cked.”
Oh, Morgan, you speak the truth! It’s nice to see people of Morgan’s age come out of the pot-closet and share their views on the plant. (via)
