Does Harrison Ford Smoke Weed?

Harrison Ford’s career as an actor and producer has spanned over 50 years, starting in 1966. Although he starred in a number of films before, his first big film credit came in 1973, when he played Bob Falfa in “American Graffiti”. Even though the film wasn’t a huge success, it was director George Lucas’ feature film debut, which then landed Ford the role of Han Solo in Lucas’ “Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope”. Even though it’s common knowledge that Lucas didn’t originally want Ford for the role of Solo, this became the character who launched Ford to success. Following the success of “A New Hope”, Ford continued to star in “Star Wars: Episode V” and “Star Wars: Episode VI”, which led him to another starring role in the “Indiana Jones” film series.

Although he has yet to admit it and most likely won’t admit it, while shooting “Star Wars”, Harrison Ford smoked weed according to his co-star Carrie Fisher. In her memoir “The Princess Diaries”, Fisher recalls smoking with Ford, “Where at the onset it was all giggles and munchies and floating in a friendly haze – it suddenly became creepy and dark and scary... This was when I was about 19, while I was filming Star Wars." This marijuana, which Fisher called “brutal strength” cannabis, was so strong that she forgot most of what happened while filming in 1976. She’s not the only one who smoked with Ford though, as he offered David Litchfield “this all-American reefer” in the 1970s. Ford admitted he didn’t smoke while working, “Nope. I can't even admit it exists." He then proceeded to describe the weed he was smoking, “This is not Cannabis indica, or Cannabis sativa, this is Cannabis rutica, a real strong dope." If anyone has any idea what this real strong cannabis rutica is, where can we get some?


One need not look further than the decades of debate over cannabis to see that alternative medical treatments often get a bad rap. Federal prohibition of marijuana — classified as a Schedule I drug alongside stigmatized substances like heroin — conflicts growing scientific evidence proving cannabis' efficacy for a variety of medical conditions. Now, in order to demonstrate the cannabis plant's medical clout, GoFire, a new dispensation product and app based out of Denver, isd taking a community based approach.
