Charlize Theron’s Mom Scored Her Some Weed

It’s hard to be Charlize Theron. She says she has trouble sleeping, which I assume is due to flashbacks of the year-and-a-half of dating Sean Penn she was forced to endure. Not that Penn mistreated her or anything, he’s just, you know, Sean Penn. Also, Harvey Weinstein says he slept with her, which she denies, but there’s only so many old naked assholes one woman can see in a lifetime before it requires medication.

Just a few weeks ago, Theron was talking about how she was considering smoking pot again to help her with her sleeping problems, and now, promoting her marijuana-themed action-comedy film Gringo, Theron went on Jimmy Kimmel Live and talked about her surprising new drug dealer.

“I’m always willing to try anything. You got one life to live, why not?” the star said during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday. “I have really bad sleep [patterns] and so does my mom. We do take sleep medication and I was saying to her, ‘Maybe we should try a sleeping strain, something that could help us with sleep.’ ”

Though she suggested the herbal alternative, Theron did not expect her mother to be the one to shop for it.

“I really thought I would be the responsible one to have to go and get that,” she admitted. “Last week she showed up at my house, literally drove in her little tennis outfit and brought me a little container and just left it on my kitchen table.”

She went on to say that her mom actually went into a dispensary and bought some legal edibles. Never once has my mom bought me weed. The closest she’s come are those chocolate oranges you get for Christmas. My mom has roughly as much experience with weed as Leslie Knope,

All kidding aside, marijuana is harmless and has a lot of beneficial effects. The effects of marijuana prohibition are far, far more detrimental to society than the effects of the pot itself, and I’m glad that we have celebrities like Charlize Theron talking about the beneficial qualities weed can have like Theron has been doing. Sure, it’s fun and that’s a big part of why people do it, but weed can absolutely help people with a variety of conditions, and nothing is gained by locking people up for doing it.
