She revealed that she likes to smoke weed, she brings a bright comedic sensibility to her roles, and cannabis helps her there! I guess this is the reason "The Good Place" star played "Mary Lane / Mary Jane" in the musical, smart, funny, and well performed parody "Reefer Madness - The Movie Musical".
The movie used the original "Reefer Madness" plot as a launching point to satirize McCarthy, fundamentalism, race, and the obsession with privilege, wealth and breeding which have so sadly marred our history. The talented actress said
I've sort of invented my own True North of a religion. There's happiness and suffering, and which one gets you closer to happiness? In terms of our Ecstasy party, some would say, 'Drugs are bad' and to me that's very close-minded. I feel that's much more towards happiness than it is suffering, so what's the problem?
It is inspired by the cult 1936 anti-marijuana propaganda film, "Reefer Madness" that already overblown criticism of #Marijuana usage in the source film and ups the ante to humorous effect. It is more better than the 1936 one that no mere comparison can do it justice.
Unlike the original, nearly everything in this production is done right. The likable characters are the good ones, and the villains are truly despicable. It is well written and combines the best aspects of movies like "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "Little Shop of Horrors".
The American actress "Kristen Anne Bell" was born on 18 July 1980, in Huntington Woods, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, where she was raised. She began her acting career while attending the "Tisch School" of the arts at "New York University".
She studied opera singing and did musical theatre in her youth, and studied acting at NYU for two years until she was booked into a broadway show. She won a "Saturn Award For Best Actress" on Television for her role in the teen TV series "Veronica Mars" (2004–07). From 2007 to 2012, she voiced the narrator in "Gossip Girl" and also voiced "Princess Anna" in the disney film Frozen (2013).
After her 2008 breakout film role as the title character in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", she has appeared in a number of comedy films, including the "Bad Moms" movies. Since 2016, she has played on the NBC comedy "The Good Place".
In 2006 & 2013, she was selected "World's Sexiest Vegetarian" on PETA's yearly poll, and in 2011 she became the face of Neutrogena. Maybe they wanted to get her into #Cannabis cosmetics, as "Estee Lauder" has!
The 39-year-old mother said on the podcast "WTF With Mark Maron", "I like my vape pen quite a bit," adding that it doesn't bother her sober husband when she uses it occasionally. She said "Weed Rules. Weed's my drug of choice, for sure" and when Maron asked her how she decides when it’s appropriate to smoke, "The Good Place" star said
I can’t do it around my kids, which is a phenomenal amount of hours each week. Once a week, if I’m exhausted and we’re about to sit down and watch 60 Minutes, why not?
She vapes around her husband "Dax Shepard", even though he's 15 years sober, he is open-minded when it comes to friends and family experimenting with drugs. People are also criticizing her for smoking when her husband is sober.
But Shepard doesn't mind when she smokes #Weed and is encouraging her to throw an ecstasy party for their pals! She vapes also non-psychoactive CBD for medical purposes, she takes it daily for anxiety and uses a #CBD lotion for muscle soreness. Chatting with fellow vape-lover "Whoopi Goldberg", Bell said
I really believe in it; I never thought that there was anything wrong with it, but I also really believe in the healing properties of CBD"
