Burt Reynolds, Star Of 'Smokey And The Bandit' And 'Cannonball Run,' Has Died

Prominent Hollywood actor Burt Reynolds passed away earlier today at a Florida hospital due to complications from a heart condition he’d been suffering for some time.

The star, known for his rugged good looks and iconic mustache, got his big break in the 50's with a recurring role on television’s 'Gunsmoke', before going on to star in several blockbuster films throughout the 70's, including 'Deliverance', 'The Longest Yard', and 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas'.

He later received a brief career resurgence following 1997’s 'Boogie Nights', in which he played an aging adult film director. The Oscar-nominated role led to several more video game and film roles throughout the early 2000's before declining popularity and health problems pushed him into semi-retirement.

Apart from his career in film and television, Reynolds was a major marketable personality for much of the latter half of the 20th century, producing a music album, a children’s book and a nightclub under his name, among other private business ventures.

Reynolds was 82.


Right now, cannabis can only be legally purchased through dispensaries or online retailers, but that could change if a group representing corner stores across America gets its way. The lobbying arm of the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) is preparing to fight for the ability of their members to sell weed once it becomes federally legal in America. NACS doesn't have support for federal cannabis policy reform on their official agenda, but that doesn't mean they don't want a piece of the pie if the industry is legalized nationwide.
