Actor Patrick Stewart revealed he has severe arthritis and a doctor gave him legal permission to purchase cannabis-based products from a “registered outlet” to help with his condition.“I have had no negative side effects from this treatment,” he said in the statement obtained by PEOPLE, noting that using marijuana has “significantly reduced the stiffness and pain” in his hands. The actor uses the ointment each night to help with the pain in his hands so he can sleep better. “The spray, however, was much more usable and I would spray my fingers and particularly my thumb joints several times a day,”. The X-Men star said taking one-eighth of a cannabis-laced Chewy bar is “helpful at night time.”Stewart said he “enthusiastically” supports Oxford University’s research into marijuana-based treatments. “I believe this program of research might result in benefits for people like myself as well as millions of others,” he said.
Just legalize it in all 50 states already!
