Actor and activist Woody Harrelson has supported the legalization of marijuana and hemp long before gaining the support of many elected officials and skeptical citizens.
Therefore, it seems appropriate for Cheers Stars to attend a ribbon-cut ceremony celebrating the grand opening of Woodsweeho’s retail cannabis pharmacy on Friday in West Hollywood.
In fact, it was Harrellson himself who helped cut the ribbon as a symbol of the opening of the facility at 8271 Santa Monica Boulevard.
After a long time: Woody Harrelson, 60, and West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister are honored to cut the ribbon to show that Woody Weeho’s retail cannabis pharmacy has grand-opened in West Hollywood on Friday, May 13. thought.

Council member Lindsey Hovasse and West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce CEO Genevieve Morrill also attended the event. With Harrellson’s wife Laura Harrellson and friend / actor Steve Guttenberg.
Fortunately, Keith Kaplan, the former chairman of the WeHo Chamber of Commerce, framed a $ 1 bill and presented it to Harrelson. This is the tradition of the WeHo Chamber of Commerce.
“Hopefully we could add more beauty and fun here,” Harrellson told a crowd packed on the sidewalk of Santa Monica Boulevard.Just before Woods officially opened its door, as reported by WeHo Times..

For years, Harrellson has been one of the proponents and users of cannabis and hemp voice.
In 1996, he was arrested in Lee County, Kentucky for symbolically planting four cannabis seeds to challenge state law that did not distinguish between industrial cannabis and marijuana.
Fast-forwarding for 26 years, the acclaimed actor did not expect the day to come when marijuana and hemp would become a viable product that would be legally produced and sold.
“It can’t be helped,” he said. “It’s like a war. If it weren’t profitable, it wouldn’t be that much. And it’s no exception to say that war with non-corporate drugs is very profitable. So I think it’s I never thought it would be forgiven. Of course, the government is still getting their cuts, and perhaps in fact they are getting more than ever.
It’s a new day: Harrellson confessed that he didn’t expect the day to come when marijuana and hemp would become viable commodities that were legally produced and sold.
