Amanda Seyfried Wants To #LegalizeIt

This won’t be at all surprising, but Amanda Seyfried likes to get stoned, guys. She loves blazing it up on the regular and thinks it should be legal to do so, particularly because she’s experienced medical marijuana’s positive effects on her anxiety and believes everyone should have the same opportunities. In other words, Seyfried wants to #legalizeit ASAP.

Seyfried, who played Sophie Sheridan in Mamma Mia!, told the Sunday Times using the drug would be “the worst thing ever for me” because she suffers from anxiety attacks.

But she added: “I think it’s a wonderful thing, and lots of people use it responsibly, and it should be legal.

“I don’t understand how people can die all the time from alcohol poisoning, yet pot is so stigmatised. They could have put a bong in every scene as far as I’m concerned.”

I mean, I think Seyfried is kinda living in the Stone Age, because unless you live in some hyper-conservative community, pot is not really stigmatized anymore. No one really cares and it’s certainly not as big of a deal as it once was (although we won’t get into the whole thing on pot arrests/racism situation, because I do realize that is very real and serious). At the end of the day, however, she is obviously right. Alcohol is much more dangerous than weed, I’d say. Unfortunately, it just makes me too lazy to do much of anything, so my stoner days are behind me.
