Morgan Freeman, the Voice of God, Loves Weed and Wants It Legalized

You ever get so high that you imagine Morgan Freeman is narrating your life? “He crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side,” he’ll say mellifluously, “and then he walked to the freezer and took out a pint of ice cream.” If you were friends with Morgan Freeman, that could actually happen, because according to the Daily Beast, Morgan Freeman loves weed and wants it legalized.

In the interview, Freeman says he’s a real pothead, and takes it any way he can get it: “I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it!” (apparently Morgan Freeman is rich enough to have access to snortable weed that plebs do not). He has fibromyalgia and the only thing that offers pain relief is weed.

The voice of God is pro-legalization:

“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!’”

However, Morgan Freeman also once said, “I don’t want a Black History Month,” so maybe his opinions shouldn’t be valued too highly.
