Patrick Stewart Says He Uses Cannabis to Help His Hands
During a recent interview with the UK version of Esquire, famed actor Patrick Stewart said he uses cannabis to treat a problem with his hands.
To start the interview, Stewart, who’s 76, was asked if his role in the upcoming movie Logan made him confront his fears about aging (in the movie Stewart plays a frail and aging Professor Xavier)
“I think about it everyday. Not all the time. I’m not brooding on it, but I’ve come to a point where the numbers are against you”, says Stewart. “Physical things (make me feel old). You get to an age where you go to the doctor, you tell him how old you are and he just shrugs his shoulders and says: ‘Oh, is that it?'”
Stewart goes on to state that his main problem is that his “hands don’t work very well”, but “thanks to cannabis they work much better than they used to.”
Stewart then notes that he uses cannabis legally, and as a spray; “Thanks to the law in California now, it’s just a spray that I put on.”
When asked what he does when in the U.K., where such a spray is illegal, Stewart said; “I can’t answer that question.”
