Kirsten Dunst: Smokin’

April 11th, 2007 · 4 Comments

The Spider-Man star opines:

I’ve never been a major smoker, but I think America’s view on weed is ridiculous. I mean, are you kidding me? If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place.

Somewhat more interesting is the passing mention of the fact—old news, apparently, but news to me—that Carl Sagan was a big dope fiend.

    Yeah, but she also said Spider-Man should die in the third movie, so she lost a lot of credibility. ;)

    Oh, yeah. Sagan had a house in Ithaca set in the side of a gorge overlooking a waterfall and the whole valley and lake below. When I was at Cornell, I heard several (well, two) professors specifically comment on how great it was to experience that view while stoned.

    Not only was he a pot enthusiast, Sagan’s wife was a director of NORML. And he had good things to say about the revelatory potential of taking showers with your wife while stoned.

    Of course anyone looking into the cosmos that long would have to be a pothead. When he wrote, “they should have sent a poet,” he meant “damn, I could tell you all about this if I had some fucking weed.” Or maybe he didn’t actually write that. I never actually read Contact, but who gives a fuck.
