Patrick Stewart reveals he uses medical marijuana every...

(CNET) To ease his arthritis pain, Stewart, 76, uses marijuana spray, ointment and edible cannabis products. He spoke of his use in a statement released Thursday to support Oxford University’s Cannabis Research Plan, a combined effort between the university and venture capital company Kingsley Capital Partners. The project will invest $12.3 million (£10 million, AU$16 million) into a center to research cannabis uses and treatments. Stewart said in a statement given to The Daily Telegraph that a Los Angeles doctor gave him a medical marijuana prescription two years ago to help with the ortho-arthritis in his hands. Using a marijuana-derived spray brought back mobility to his hands, and he was able to make fists again, Stewart said. He also said he regularly used a marijuana-derived ointment and an edible bar to help him sleep. “As a result of this experience, I enthusiastically support the Oxford University Cannabis Research Plan,” Stewart said. “This is an important step forward for Britain in a field of research that has, for too long, been held back by prejudice, fear and ignorance.” Patrick Stewart reveals he uses medical marijuana every day
