Morgan Freeman, who is in favor of legalizing marijuana (and one of the best actors to ever exist, IMO), recently gave a Newsweek interview where he discussed his role in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy and he had this to say about the illegal herb:
"Marijuana! 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."
Freeman is definitely not the first celebrity to come forward in support of legalization, and plenty of Hollywood's elite have been busted a time or two for smoking some homegrown. While rappers like Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne make no secret about their love for "purple flowers," you might be surprised to learn who else is rolling a blunt or calling for legalization these days.
