I’m loving all the Michael Douglas news over the past few days !!!
Michael Douglas is urging U.S. government officials to consider legalising the use of marijuana.
The Traffic star insists America’s corrupt history seems destined to repeat itself until his countrymen can smoke freely, recalling the violence incited by Prohibition.
And the 64-year-old is adamant that making cannabis legal would boost America’s flagging economy and make the world more peaceful.
He says, “It’s an interesting issue with all of these troubles that are going on… and trying to resolve things. It’s an interesting thing that’s being raised again.
“I’m questioning it. We’re trying to get a lot of money for health and education and I’m wondering… you look at these gangs, and I look back at Prohibition. When we didn’t allow alcohol, what did we have? We had gangs. We had big gangs. It’s something that needs to be discussed a little more. It’s an economic issue and a violence issue.”
