Blair Witch Actress Recounts Experience as Medical Marijuana Grower
Heather Donahue, one of the stars in the indie horror film The Blair Witch Project, will be releasing a book, and it is not about the film that became one of the most popular horror flicks of all time.
A feature on the Daily Mail shares how Donahue eventually became disillusioned with Hollywood. She decided to switch careers, and eventually put her green thumb to use by growing medical marijuana. She recounts all these in the book GrowGirl: How My Life After The Blair Witch Project Went To Pot.
Donahue herself was prescribed with medical marijuana in 2007, for the treatment of PMS. In an interview in the Philadelphia Inquirer where she was asked whether she smoked marijuana a week out of a month, she said: “It’s a very flexible medicine.”
After the realization that as she grew older, better movie offers were not coming along, Donahue followed her boyfriend to Nuggettown, and grew pot for medical purposes. She made the transformation from a fast-paced life in Los Angeles to becoming a country girl. She has always been an avid gardener, however, so the adjustment was not that difficult.
After a friend was busted by federal authorities, she decided to stop growing pot and to write about her experience.
Despite having been a pot grower, she is, however, torn about the question of marijuana legalization. Donahue shared the following on her website: “Cannabis has been intertwined with human culture for thousands of years… It’s here to stay as medicine, as an industry, and as a component of the culture. The idea that such a hearty, useful plant could be legislated out of existence seems pretty foolish.”Tags: Blair Witch Heather Donahue, GrowGirl Heather Donahue, Heather Donahue, Heather Donahue marijuana grower, Heather Donahue medical marijuana
