Morgan Freeman is a long-time advocate of marijuana legalization, a point he recently reiterated in a wide-ranging interview with Newsweek.
Here's what the "Dark Knight Rises" actor had to say on the issue:
Marijuana! Heavens, oh yeah. It’s just the stupidest law possible, given history. You don’t stop people from doing what they want to do, so forget about making it unlawful. You’re just making criminals out of people who aren’t engaged in criminal activity. And we’re spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can’t win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. It’s stupid.
The man makes sense. Share Mr. Freeman's wisdom with someone this weekend. Break the ice by starting your conversation with, "Did you see where award winning actor Morgan Freeman said . . . ." May you be blessed with, ahem, company, for the weekend.
