Imagine a movie with an older black man sitting around smoking weed and discussing the joys of it, starring Morgan Freeman. Or better yet, just imagine in real life Freeman sitting back in his living room with all this weed. Every different type and strain you could possibly imagine. Because in a recent interview with the Daily Beast, Freeman explains that he likes to get high and is definitely behind weed’s legalization.
“They used to say, ‘You smoke that stuff, boy, you get hooked!’” Freeman stated. “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.”
Several years ago, Freeman was involved in a serious car wreck that left him unable to fully use his left hand. Freeman says the only thing that has helped his pain is marijuana.
“Marijuana has many useful uses,” he said. “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!’”
One has to wonder what effect it has on Freeman. Is he one of those talkative people when he gets high? Does he instantly become a philosopher? Or does he just sit back in his recliner and stare off into space? Either way, his love of marijuana might make quite an interesting movie someday. But that snorting part? I don’t think that’s possible.
