Morgan Freeman

The legalization of marijuana remains a hot topic, after three states have legalized the plant for recreational use.

Actor Morgan Freeman is joining in on the discussion, offering his support in nationwide legalization, during an interview with The Daily Beast last week.

“Legalize it across the board,” said the 77-year-old.

Freeman became an advocate for medicinal use of marijuana after shattering his left shoulder, arm and elbow in a car accident in 2008. He continues to experience pain, which he eases by using the drug.

It “has many useful uses”, Freeman says. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana.”

“How do I take it? However it comes. I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it.”
