Last week the Scottish actor said cannabis is ‘absolutely great’ and the drug makes the turbulent world of politics easier to bear. I think we can all agree with that. Unfortunately the actor with a CBE (Commander of The British Empire) Incurred the wrath of Joyce McIntosh, chairwoman of the Mid-Lin Daycare Centre, in Dundee.

Good to see that Cox re-iterated his thoughts on cannabis use

To clarify, I am a firm believer in the medicinal benefits of marijuana and have partaken in its use in places where it is legal to do so.

Leaf Desk reports….

Last week the Scottish actor said cannabis is ‘absolutely great’ and the drug makes the turbulent world of politics easier to bear.

Now Joyce McIntosh, chairwoman of the Mid-Lin Daycare Centre, in Dundee , says he will no longer be patron following his pro-drug opinions.

She told the Daily Record: “Dundee is drug-ridden we just can’t support Brian’s views on cannabis.

“We are shocked and disappointed.

“I couldn’t actually believe it when I read the papers – he has a CBE and all these awards and honorary positions and next thing, we’re seeing that he’s telling people to get stoned.”

Cox, a 73-year-old Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner, told the Guardian about his use of cannabis – and how he only started taking it at 50.

Good humour

He said: “I am sorry to hear that Mid-Lin Day Care Centre were shocked and disappointed by my comments regarding marijuana, which were actually made in good humour.

“To clarify, I am a firm believer in the medicinal benefits of marijuana and have partaken in its use in places where it is legal to do so.

“I wish Mid-Lin the best in all their future endeavours.”

Last week the Labour supporter and Scottish independence campaigner told the Guardian: “It’s absolutely great and I recommend it to everyone – get stoned!

“It does make the politics easier to bear. It’s a way of dealing with idiocy.”
