Morgan Freeman Throws Support Behind Marijuana Legalization
The United States is currently in the thick of a marijuana controversy. Should the plant be legal or illegal? Should the plant be partially legal or illegal? Should the medical uses be used or should it simply be illegal to use marijuana? The questions all point to the same thing. A government that thinks they should have the ability to legalize anything and everything they want.
Fortunately for us we have many, many people that are willing to tell the truth and call this what it really is. The pot topics in the legislative branches of government are nothing more than a ploy. Thankfully there is someone like Morgan Freeman who centers the topic and brings the facts into focus.
“My first wife got me into it many years ago. How do I take it? However it comes! I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it,” Morgan said.
Marijuana is wildly popular product. It is growing in popularity among all age groups and it is finding more and more acceptance as well. The most common way of ingestion is to smoke the product but as Freeman pointed out it can be used in a variety of ways.
“They used to say, ‘You smoke that stuff, boy, you get hooked!’ ” Freeman said with a laugh. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana,” he continued.
“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!”
The “authorities” and civic “leaders” used to only criticize this plant. It was called a hippie drug and a miscreant drug. The facts are simple and they are refreshing. Some of the most successful and brilliant people use marijuana. And they are not shooting up with heroin because of it.
“Look at Woodstock 1969. They said, ‘We’re not going to bother them or say anything about smoking marijuana,’ and not one problem or fight. Then look at what happened in ’99,” he said, referring to the arrests and unrest at the anniversary concert.
With the support of someone like Freeman you would think the topic could gain some traction. Unfortunately we are forced to deal with the wants and desires of the “elected” officials who think they know what is best for us. How long until the revolution kicks in and we fix the idiotic laws like this?
