Morgan Freeman: Legalize Marijuana! Everywhere!

by at .

The issue of whether or not to legalize marijuana is an ongoing issue around the country.

But not to Morgan Freeman it shouldn't be.

The 77-year-old Oscar-winner told The Daily Beast in a recent interview that pot should be legal "it across the board."

Freeman grew into an advocate for medicinal use of the substance after breaking his left shoulder, arm and elbow in a car crash in 2008.

The veteran star still hasn't regained full use of his left hand as a result of the accident.

He continues to experience pain, which is the basis for this outspoken support.

"Marijuana has many useful uses," Freeman 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."

Freeman says the pro-marijuana movement is "a long time coming,” a sentiment we’re guessing Miley Cyrus, Willie Nelson and other celebrities would share.

"How do I take it?" Morgan asked. "However it comes! I'll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it."
