Woody Harrelson was getting ready to open his West Hollywood dispensary. He spoke with L.A. Weekly last year, sharing his views on how the cannabis industry has changed and the moment he was ready for the trigger.
“It’s kind of mind-blowing because to be honest, I never thought that it would get to this stage,”Harrelson spoke to L.A. Weekly. “I never thought you’d even have it to where it was legal, much less that you could go get it out of the shop. So it’s pretty exciting. I don’t really take much credit, but a lot of people did a lot of hard work to make it happen. I don’t know what the definition of freedom is in a free country, but I would assume that you should be free to do what you want, as long as you don’t hurt anybody else or their property. But apparently, the government feels different about that.”
