Woody Harrelson gives up smoking pot after '30 solid years'
Woody Harrelson has given up marijuana after decades of what he calls partying too hard.
The actor, one of Hollywood's most well-known marijuana enthusiasts, told the Vulture website he has not smoked pot in nearly a year.
He cited "30 solid years" of partying for his decision to quit. He also said he felt like the drug was "keeping me from being emotionally available".
The 55-year-old still had nothing bad to say about marijuana, which he calls "a great drug", and s aid he drinks alcohol in moderation.
Harrelson was arrested in 1996 for planting hemp seeds in Kentucky to challenge a state law. Hemp is a relative of marijuana, but has a lower concentration of THC, the substance that makes pot smokers high.
