The 75-year-old actor chatted about his views regarding marijuana during an interview with Newsweek recently.

“Marijuana! Heavens, oh yeah. It’s just the stupidest law possible, given history,” he lamented. “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.”

Do you agree with Morgan Freeman?

    I agree with Morgan Freeman about the stupidity of some laws that politicians put
    Into effect.Some stupid laws,rules and regulations kept some past citizens tied up in mental freezers for centuries.Folks ,marijuana has been around from day one,
    In fact Tobacco has been around a long time.The stupidity is ,citizens can be put
    In cages for doing the same fu'”””””” thing tobacco smokers do.It’s not fair..Adults
    In the United States are treated like children,with big government acting like big daddy.We only get one life to live.What ever happened to that notion of life,liberty
    And the pursuit of happiness?.

    I myself have never committed a crime using it i have never solicited prostitution or stayed up all night smoking it. It is no worse than alcohol as long as not laced and since we won’t hire an adequate amount of officers to police neighborhoods and keep miseducated/understood youth from snatchin purses and raping thepeoples grandmothers…at least officer would have more time to focus on real criminal activities

    I think it should be legal as long as it’s not laced with anything and the person buying it is unaware. I also think Morgan was smoking a lot of it when he said the president wasn’t a black president.

    I am not a weed smoker, but I think it should be legalized. If you can drink, smoke cigs, than you should be able to smoke weed. The government could make some money, & put many back to work planting fields of this stuff and regulating it. They are not stopping you from getting it now, and all this money wasted trying to police it.
