Woody Harrelson Had To Get High To Make It Through Dinner With Donald Trump

That’s one way to handle dinner with The Donald.

On the most recent episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, Academy Award-winner Woody Harrelson revealed his secret to getting through a 2002 dinner party with the now-U.S. President: a big fat joint.

Harrelson started by explaining that his friend Jesse Ventura invited him to the party with Trump. At the time, Trump was attempting to enlist Ventura as his Democratic running partner for the 2004 election.  

“I went and it was brutal. I never met a more narcissistic man. He talked about himself the whole time. You could see the standard he was going to bear,” Harrelson said.

“I had to walk out halfway through to smoke a joint just to, like, steel myself from the rest of it.”

Sounds about right.

The cannabis conversation between the longtime pals and vocal cannabis advocates didn't end there, however.

Maher brought up how Harrelson famously copped to quitting cannabis (or, at least, smoking cannabis) earlier this year. Despite saying he had no intention of trying to get Harrelson "back on the wagon", Maher illustrated his true feelings on the matter by throwing up some images of Harrelson before-and-after he stopped smoking weed. 

After showing the first image, Maher says: "Here's us this last year in Hawaii after you'd given up pot ... You look okay, but not ecstatic."

Maher then shows this image, offering simply: "Here's the year before, when we were completely baked."

"That's a strong case," replies Harrelson. "I'm about to fire up a hooter."

Because it has been illegal or stigmatized for decades, the body of cannabis research available is, in many ways, incomplete. But Canada’s federal government is taking advantage of the country’s status as the only G7 country to have legalized marijuana and addressing that issue. It was announced yesterday that nearly 25 million dollars will be used to fund cannabis research in Canada.
