Harrelson: 'I'm not marijuana man'
Actor Woody Harrelson can't understand why the media makes such a fuss about his love of marijuana - because "we're all drug addicts".
The Cheers star has become the Hollywood poster boy for all things hemp and high, and he even lit up a joint for a recent Playboy magazine interview at his home in Hawaii.
Harrelson just can't understand why marijuana hasn't been legalised - and why everyone thinks he's high all the time.
He tells the publication, "I've seen it printed that I'm a marijuana activist, and I understand that, but it's really just something I enjoy.
"Folks may have a drink... People may want to pop a pill before going to a party - that's not for me. Cocaine freaks me out.
"I like the mellow vibe of herb, its uninhibiting effect. For me, it's a better drug than any of the others, and since we're all drug addicts, I don't think it's a bad choice.
"Whether your drug is sugar, coffee, sex, exercise or religion - everybody has something.
"I was two years on (attention deficit disorder drug) Ritalin; my brother was eight years on it. If you didn't have a drug addict before, you had one after. You have someone who's forever chasing the dream.
