Roseanne Barr on Medical Marijuana: ‘It Works for Me’

  Thank You:    Comedian/reality-TV star Roseanne Barr likes her medical marijuana on the sweet side. “I don’t smoke,” she says during a recent episode of “Roseanne’s Nuts,” which is based in Hawaii. Frustrated with the state’s lack of dispensaries, Barr flies to L.A. to score a loaded cookie. She uses cannabis for anxiety and anger issues. While at the dispensary Barr gets a lesson in the differences between sativas and indicas and walks away with a bagful of edibles. She pops the cookie during a meditation session and trips out (the visuals are animated). “I don’t actually have any thoughts other than Willie Nelson,” she tells hippie-guru-in-training Greg. “It works for me.”     Barr’s point is well taken when she asks rather loudly, “Why is it that you can take ant-depressants back to Hawaii but not medical marijuana?” Watch Roseanne’s Nuts on Lifetime, Wednesdays at 9 pm EST.
