Morgan Freeman, also known as “America’s Narrator,” has softly guided us through the world, holding our hands as he showed us the miracle of baby penguins in March of The Penguins, or responsibly driving us through a well-told tale in Million Dollar Baby, or even uncracking many marvels of science in his groundbreaking narration of Through the Wormhole.
But when Freeman isn’t busy narrating things, or playing God, or winning Oscars, he’s saving up his power and energy by smoking healthy amounts of marijuana. Popeye has his green plant that gives him strength, while Freeman has his own green plant!
Freeman, 77, is a longtime pot user and advocate, and has been quoted with the amazing statement to The Daily Beast: “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 turns out that the film legend was in a car accident seven years ago, and as a result of which, he still suffers from the pain caused by several injuries. Our good old friend marijuana is the only thing that naturally tones down that pain for the award-winning actor.
So here we have a plant that God Himself threw onto the Earth that was so fruitful, and multiplied so much that God Himself smokes it? “Legalize it across the board!” he said. Watch another interview with the actor below, and watch what he says about his relationship with pot!
Why do you think alcohol is legal, which has been proven to have much worse consequences than our friendly herb friend, and pot is not legal? What do you think about the legalization of pot? Let us know in the comments below!
