Woody Hemps and Haws about Pot Habit!

Looks like Woody Harrelson is doing more with hemp than just weaving shirts. The actor, who has long advocated using the fiber to make clothing, also has a more problematic relationship with the related plant, Marijuana.
He says he's addicted to it."I have to deal with certain issues about who I am," the "Thin Red Line" star confesses in an upcoming story in the Los Angeles Times Magazine. "Certainly I have an addiction."Harrelson insists he's not happy about his smoking habit."I don't want to just be a pothead, you know? The natural way, the straight-edge way, that's where I'm heading, I think. I'm just dilly-dallying a bit on the road."I've quit from time to time in the middle of something that's a lot of pressure, and after a couple of days . . . my friends who were so happy for me to quit very kindly suggested that I smoke a joint," Harrelson said.The actor has sworn off pot for days and weeks at a time, but "the first thing I notice is that I cry every day," he said."I feel, sometimes, the weight of the world."Harrelson owns Hempstead Co., which makes clothing out of hemp, a milder, non-druggie form of the marijuana plant. Earlier this year, perhaps looking for a nice, legal buzz, he opened an oxygen bar in West Hollywood, Calif.
