“Legalize it across the board,” the Lucy actor said.
Freeman became an advocate for medicinal use of the drug after shattering his left shoulder, arm and elbow in a car accident in 2008. He still hasn’t regained full use of his left hand and continues to experience pain, which inspires his support for the medicinal use of the drug.
“Marijuana has many useful uses,” he told The Daily Beast. “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana. 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.”
The 5 Flights Up star said his first wife initially introduced him to marijuana.
“How do I take it? However it comes! I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it,” Freeman said.
The actor and grandfather called the movement “a long time coming” and said he thinks comparing its effects to alcohol use will help legalization get “longer legs.”
“Now, the thrust is understanding that alcohol has no real medicinal use,” he told the website. “Maybe if you have one drink it’ll quiet you down, but two or three and you’re f—–.”
