Morgan Freeman Calls Marijuana Prohibition “Stupidest Law Possible”

Oscar-winning actor and longtime advocate of marijuana legalization Morgan Freeman recently did an interview in which he discussed his feeling on marijuana prohibition.
“Marijuana,” Freeman said, “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.”
And the stupidity doesn’t look like it’s going to end anytime soon, especially when it comes to the federal government. They say marijuana is dangerous and they are going to protect us from ourselves.
More people speak out everyday about the incredible waste and destruction caused by our marijuana laws. There is a better way. More politicians just have to see the light.
