|Oliver Stone: “I believe the grass is God’s gift”|
Film director Oliver Stone told High Times he’s considering becoming part of California’s medical marijuana green rush, since the state is known for its high-quality weed.
Stone, a longtime cannabis advocate, spent a little time in jail in the late 1960s when he was caught with pot at the U.S./Mexican border, but as is usually the case, that didn’t dissuade him from his herbal enthusiasm, reports Star Magazine.
“If you appreciate California weed — as I have for many years — you’ll realize that we’re somewhat close to the money when we say that California has surpassed Thailand, Jamaica, South Sudan and certainly Mexico as the king and queen of quality weed,” Stone told High Times. (Wait, WTF, South Sudan?)
“I’m thinking myself of getting into the business, although I suspect there’d be a lot of stress with the Feds changing the rules all the time,” the Natural Born Killers director said.
“I believe the grass is God’s gift,” Stone told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month. “California makes the best in the world now … All my life I’ve been doing it, off and on. I can stop marijuana … I’m not addicted. I enjoy it. I also enjoy alcohol.
“Cocaine, I stay away from, but I believe in LSD, mescaline, mushrooms, ayahuasca,” the director said. “Ecstasy is great, too.”
He’s not a fan of Prozac, however.
“I’ve taken medication, but it doesn’t work for me,” Stone said. “I’m not a Prozac person anymore; I’ve already taken too much of that. I feel you have to confront it on a spiritual basis.”
