Woody Harrelson might be a party animal, but he hasn't smoke weed in about a year.

Woody Harrelson has decided to pass on grass.

When asked what misconceptions people have about him, the actor revealed that he hasn’t smoked marijuana in nearly a year.

“I actually stopped smoking pot almost a year ago,” Harrelson told Vulture in an interview published Monday.

That’s not to say that pot isn’t a “great drug,” he said. “Even cops say that the side effect is euphoria.”

Harrelson has spent over a decade on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, USA Today noted. It’s just that after “30 solid years of just partying too fucking hard,” the 55-year-old Harrelson seems ready to take it easy. The married father of three daughters said the drug also prevents him from being “emotionally available.”

Harrelson noted that he still drinks, but in moderation.

His current project, “Wilson,” is set for release on Friday.
