Oscar-winning actor and longtime advocate of marijuana legalization Morgan Freeman recently did an interview in which he discussed his feeling on marijuana prohibition.
“Marijuana,” Freeman said, “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.”
