Thornton Recalls Weed-Smoking Days

Hollywood actor Billy Bob Thornton has declared his support for marijuana - because he believes it causes far less violence than alcohol.

The SLING BLADE star, 48, is "all for" the right to smoke cannabis, but no longer touches the illegal substance himself.

He tells STUFF magazine, "Back in the day when I did drugs, pot just made me feel really stupid and made me go to sleep. I have friends who are total pot heads who just love it.

"I mean, I was around pot and stuff, and I did smoke it. But I never had reefer madness. But I'm all for it.

"People can drink whiskey and go out and knife someone in a bar. What do people who smoke pot do? They sit home and watch The Wizard of Oz and listen to Pink Floyd."
