Morgan Freeman is a long-time advocate of marijuana legalization, a point he recently reiterated in a wide-ranging interview with Newsweek.

Here's what the "Dark Knight Rises" actor had to say on the issue:

Marijuana! Heavens, oh yeah. Itís just the stupidest law possible, given history. You donít stop people from doing what they want to do, so forget about making it unlawful. Youíre just making criminals out of people who arenít engaged in criminal activity. And weíre spending zillions of dollars trying to f!ght a war we canít win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. Itís stupid.

Pot wasn't the only topic on his mind, however. Freeman also explained his own personal -- to use Barack Obama's word -- evolution on same-s3x marriage:

I grew up in the South but I started dancing in my twenties when I got out of the Air Force, and studying dance, youíre surrounded by gay guys all the time. You get to know them and you have to shift gears!

Freeman is often a free-wheeling interview subject. In an interview in June of this year, the actor said he believes "we invented God." In September of 2011, he told Piers Morgan the Tea Party is "a racist thing."

"Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term," he continued at the time. "What underlines that? 'Screw the country. [...] Weíre going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.'"

I feel em tho..
It's also a Buddhist and New Age point of view..... If you believe God is everything...and you are part of everything..what are you? When you begin realizing your true self, you begin to unlock the secrets of the universe.
