Charlize Theron Loves Weed

Charlize Theron is pretty awesome, and she played one of the most memorable guest stars on Arrested Development, one of my favorite TV shows of all-time. So I was pleasantly surprised to hear she told E! that she was also a giant pothead.

“I was a wake-and-baker for most of my life,” she said of her past.

“Do you remember your first time?” E!’s Sibley Scoles asked.

“Yeah, I was older. I didn’t really mess around with anything until I was much older,” Theron said. “But I really appreciated marijuana way more than alcohol or anything else. My chemistry was really good with it when I was younger and then it just changed one day. Like, in my early thirties I just became boring on it and I would just stand in front of my fridge, so that’s no good.”

Oh, I have been there, Charlize. I remember multiple occasions where my roommate and I would make some big plans for the evening, smoke up, and then fall asleep after eating everything in the house.

So Theron doesn’t smoke weed anymore, but she’s thinking about trying it again.

“I’m open to retrying it again because now there’s all these different strains and you can be specific with it,” she said. “And I’m actually really interested because I have really bad insomnia, and I’d much rather get off sleeping pills and figure out a strain that helps me sleep better. So when I have a moment, I’m actually doing that with my mom. My mom has really bad sleep too.”

If I were an enterprising dispensary owner, I would get to work on a strain of indica specifically for falling asleep and I’d call it “MRF”. It’s a perfect marketing opportunity. I’m also glad that kids have role models telling them it’s okay to smoke pot in the face of uncool people like Jeff Sessions and The Girl Scouts trying to kill our buzz.
