Few actors keep it as unabashedly real as the esteemed Morgan Freeman. Freeman's most recent foray into the art of calmly delivered truth involves what is somehow still a source of contention for many in this country — weed. Citing the repeatedly proven benefits of weed's various forms, Freeman expressed bafflement at the plant's political controversy in certain U.S. states.

From the Daily Beast:

"I have fibromyalgia pain 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. That right there, to me, says, 'Legalize it across the board!'"

Naturally, Freeman approaches his own weed ingestion with a sense of adventure. How does Freeman take it, you ask? "However it comes!" Freeman said. "I'll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it!" For the record, snorting it is definitely not recommended.
