During a recent interview with the Daily Beast, Morgan Freeman expressed his support towards the legalization of marijuana and even admitted to using marijuana frequently for his fibromyalgia pain.
"I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana," he explained. ”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!’”
Morgan revealed that his first wife is the person who first introduced him to marijuana and he has been using it ever since.
"They used to say, 'You smoke that stuff, boy, you get hooked!' " he recalled. “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!”
Following his interview with the Daily Beast, social media users flocked to Twitter to weigh in on the Academy award winner’s marijuana comments.
Some social media users praised the actor for supporting the legalization movement while others have slammed him for promoting the drug.
