Xena: Pro-Marijuana Warrior Princess

Lucy Lawless, wisely known for her role for her role as a leather-clad, ass-kicking feminist icon on the 1990s cult classic Xena: Warrior Princess, is now fighting to liberate from tyranny another oppressed group: medical marijuana patients.

New Zealand-born actor Lawless, who has since starred as Number Three on Battlestar Galactica, on Spartacus: Blood and Sand, and in the fifth and sixth season of Parks and Recreation, recently spoke out on medical cannabis after the Health Minister for Queensland, Cameron Dick, introduced legislation easing up the restrictions on the plant for medical users.

Lawless's compassion for families seeking access to medical cannabis isn't that surprising: she's long been a tireless fundraiser and member of the board of trustees of the StarShip Foundation, the charity arm of the Starship Children's Health Hospital.

Latest.

A non-profit group of over 150 current and former athletes is calling for marijuana to be removed form the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited substances list. Medical marijuana legalization is spreading across the US, but most pro-athletes are still prevented from accessing it. That's because most major sports leagues follow drug guidelines set by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which bans athletes from using cannabis even outside of competition.
