Morgan Freeman has been a long-standing supporter of marijuana. He once referred to ganja as "God's own weed" in an interview, so it may come as little surprise that the actor has spoken out, vociferously, against the criminalization of pot. "It’s just the stupidest law possible, given history," he said. "You don’t stop people from doing what they want to do, so forget about making it unlawful. You’re just making criminals out of people who aren’t engaged in criminal activity. And we’re spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can’t win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor." Freeman has rarely held back during interviews in recent years. The actor told CNN's Piers Morgan last year that the Tea Party "is a racist thing" and gave a separate interview last June in which he claims that "we invented God."
