Morgan Freeman, Oscar winner and voice of God in “Bruce Almighty” and “Evan Almighty”, talks weed with Larry King. When it comes to marijuana, Freeman is always on board. In this short clip of the interview with Freeman and King, the two discuss Morgan’s favorite strain and what he thinks about legalizing marijuana.
It has to be legalized
The first question Larry King asks Morgan Freeman is what his favorite strain of marijuana is. Freeman’s response was that he’s not much of a connoisseur, he just likes what’s good. I’d say that’s a good enough answer, everyone likes some good weed. Though he isn’t familiar with the different strains available out there, he at least knows what good weed is. In a recent interview with the Daily Beast, he mentioned that he will take marijuana however it comes. He says he will eat it, snort it, drink it, and smoke it. The man sure does love his weed!
“They can’t continue to say it’s a dangerous drug, but it’s safer than alcohol”
The second question that was asked by Larry King was whether or not Freeman thinks marijuana will be legalized. Morgan has high hopes for the plant’s legalization. His answer was that it will be legalized, it has to be. He also mentioned that people cannot continue to say it’s a dangerous drug, but also say it’s safer than alcohol. He makes a good point, how can something be illegal but be safer than alcohol, which is legal. Many people, Freeman included, benefit from cannabis. Mr. Freeman suffers from fibromyalgia and relies on cannabis for relief from the pain. Nevertheless, I think we can all agree that it’s time to legalize marijuana nationwide.
