Over the years, Harrelson has been one of the strong supporters and users of cannabis and hemp.

In 1996, he was arrested in Lee County, Kentucky, for symbolically planting four hemp seeds to challenge state law that did not distinguish between industrial hemp and marijuana.

Fast forward 26 years, and the acclaimed actor never thought he would see the day when marijuana and hemp could be viable products that are legally produced and sold.

“There’s no way,” he said. “It’s like war. If it wasn’t lucrative, there wouldn’t be so many. And it is no exception to say that the non-corporate war on drugs is extremely lucrative. So I didn’t think it would ever be allowed. Of course, the government still gets its share and perhaps does more than it ever has now.
