Watch: What Morgan Freeman Told Larry King About His Cannabis Use

Oscar winner (and voice of God) Morgan Freeman recently sat down for a chat with veteran interviewer Larry King. In the episode of "Larry King Now", Morgan Freeman shared his views on a wide range of topics including President Obama, Hollywood and his love of cannabis.

And when it comes to cannabis, Freeman says he's not picky about strains, and he hates that people think it's dangerous.

"They can't continue to say that it's a dangerous drug when it's safer than alcohol," Freeman tells Larry King.

It's not the first time the 78 year-old actor has talked openly about his cannabis use.

In 2015, the actor told the Daily Beast: "They used to say, 'You smoke that stuff, boy, you get hooked! My first wife got me into it many years ago. How do I take it? However it comes! I'll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it! This movement is really a long time coming, and it's getting legs - longer legs."

"Marijuana has many useful uses. I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana. They're talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they've discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life. That right there, to me, says, 'Legalize it across the board!'"

Here's more from the Larry King interview. You can watch the full episode here.

Prime Minister-designate Boris Johnson has dabbled with illicit drugs in the past, but reforming the United Kingdom's antiquated cannabis laws probably won't be part of his future. On Monday it was officially announced that MP Boris Johnson had been elected as Leader of the Conservative Party, which means he will succeed outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May as the head of government. Johnson is expected to take a different approach to politics than his predecessor, but anyone hoping that he will push for national cannabis reform probably shouldn't hold their breath.
