Famous Hollywood actor, Morgan Freeman, has called to legalize marijuana in US and across the board.
He claimed to take marijuana for medicinal purposes since 2008, when a car accident happened. The Shawshank Redemption star also added that the drug has a lot of useful uses, for example it is the only thing that helps him to get a relief from fibromyalgia pain in his arm.
On the question how he takes it, the 77-year-old said that depends on situation, so he can eat it, drink it, smoke it or snort it as well.
Although Freeman suffered four hours of surgery to repair the nerves in his arm, he still neither has fully recovered nor regained full use of his left hand.
He said that for children, who have grand mal seizures, marijuana legalization is vitally important, because the drug eases that disease down to where these kids can have a life. So for him it seemed to be a right decision to legalize it across the board.
Freeman also added that the movement for marijuana legalization has been a really long time coming and it’s to get rather long legs. But for now the thrust is understanding that alcohol has no real medicinal use, while being completely legal.
For both medicinal and recreational purposes, marijuana has been legalized only in four US states such as Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska. In 12 further states the possession, sale, transportation and cultivation of the drug is permitted only for medical purpose.
