James Garner supported legalization of cannabis [View all]


From his memoir:

I started smoking marijuana in my late teens. I drank to get drunk but ultimately didnt like the effect. Not so with grass. Grass is smooth. It had the opposite effect from alcohol: it made me more tolerant and forgiving.

I smoked marijuana for 50 years. I dont know where Id be without it. It opened my mind to a lot of things, and now its active ingredient, THC, relaxes me and eases my arthritis pain. Ive concluded that marijuana should be legal and alcohol should be illegal. But, good luck with that.

Garner mentions he gave up alcohol, except for occasional social drinking, at 30.
