Woodrow "Woody" Harrelson (born July 23, 1961) is an American actor, activist, and supporter for the legalization of cannabis and hemp. Harrelson was a guest on Ziggy Marley's track "Wild and Free", a song advocating the growing of cannabis.
Since 2003, Harrelson has served on the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws's (NORML) advisory board.
On June 1, 1996, Harrelson was arrested in Kentucky, after he symbolically planted four hemp seeds to challenge the state law which did not distinguish between industrial hemp and marijuana. Harrelson was acquitted of these charges in 2000.
