Chris Rock says cannabis should be legalised

By Bang Showbiz | Dec 11, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 6 ]

Chris Rock thinks it's time for cannabis to be legalised in the US, because he believes it is a relatively harmless drug.

The 47-year-old comedian - who has daughters Lola Simone, 10, and eight-year-old Zahra Savannah with his wife Malaak Compton-Rock - is in favour of making marijuana legal in the US because he believes it is ultimately a harmless drug.

Chris insists comic star Seth Rogen - a prolific weed smoker who was named Stoner of the Year in February - is proof you can be a cannabis user and have a successful life.

In an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, he said: "I'm all for the legalisation of weed. I have two daughters, but we all know that alcohol is worse and legal. Seth Rogen is a productive member of society. Mel Gibson has a problem."

The '2 Days in New York' star also spoke about how his life as a stand-up comedian isn't as fun as it used to be now he has achieved many of goals.

Chris - who has starred in numerous films including the 'Madagascar' animated movie series - says he now has to work a lot harder to keep up his career momentum.

When asked whether his outlook on his career had changed over time, he said: "It was more fun. First of all, you had three goals: to get good at comedy, to make money from comedy, and to get laid from comedy. What do we do now?

"Well, people seem to think we're good. We have money. We're married, so the whole working to get laid thing is over. Sad to say, but we work now to maintain our lifestyles, to not suck, and to avoid 'Celebrity Apprentice'."

Thanx Mr Rock for just saying what everyone knows. I loved the fact that you've mentioned that it is a relatively harmless herb.

canabis legalised? sheish depends on who says so, the users obviously and the growers, otherwise the rest of us dont think so, its a drug, and drugs have an eefect on users, hence u r not at 100% when smoked out,

plus the damn thing makes users breath to smell like rotten water, try smelling the hubly bubly after a joint. i think we actualy should be looking at totaly banning cigarette smoking, but whalah, the Califonia state has legalised the thing, the rest of america will soon follow suite, Then the "cut and paste" Africa will do the same, no no no, dope heads all over the place? dont leaglise it, smoke at own risk if we cathch u, u r in for it, finish and klaar
