Burner Notice: Bruce Campbell on Pot

Bruce Campbell in his career defining role as Ash Wiliiams in "Army of Darkness" (a.k.a. "Evil Dead III").

B-movie and television actor Bruce Campbell is excited about marijuana legalization. “It’s about goddamn time,” he says about Colorado and Washington. “I’m just sorry my state couldn’t get it through. Maybe just too many stoners or something.”

Campbell, who's starred in the Evil Dead movies and on Burn Notice, is referring to Oregon, which failed in its legalization effort in 2012. He lives in Jacksonville, Oregon.

Comparing marijuana with alcohol, the horror-com icon adds, “You can drink yourself to death in, what, an hour? If you put yourself to it. But you can smoke an entire bushel. Anyone who says it’s worse than alcohol should probably have their license revoked or something.”
