Morgan Freeman recently stated that he’s a big fan of medical marijuana… which makes it a whole lot funnier that he’s played God several times. They don’t call him the Burning Bush for nothing! Sorry.
Freeman sat down with the Daily Beast‘s Marlow Stern to discuss his new film 5 Flights Up. But the most interesting part of the interview was Freeman’s full-throated support of legalizing marijuana. The actor, who was in a serious car crash seven years ago, says he uses marijuana medicinally for pain relief and believes the government should “legalize it across the board.”
Though Freeman admits he has been a long-time user. He said, “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.”
It’s the closets thing to word of God that we’re going to get.
