WOODY HARRELSON IS TRYING TO OPEN A POT DISPENSARY

The application was filed under Woody's company name, Simple Organic Living. It was one of around 60 applications filed to open up shop in Honolulu County since the state passed a bill last year allowing dispensaries to open. The applications will be reviewed in April and eight will be chosen. Woody will be allowed to open two production centers and two dispensaries if his application is selected.
He recently told UK's Mirror that he spent years barely leaving the house after the show ended in 2006 and explained, "I was burnt out. I wanted to not have a schedule, not be somewhere. I was in a position to do that. My agent was bummed. Most actors call their agents and say, 'What's going on?'. I'd call mine and say, 'Please lose my number for a few years.' It was a very dark time. I almost had a nervous breakdown."

Truth be told is the b**ch doesn't like any of the other ladies at all. She really didn't. She didn't want to be friends with them, but she needed a sidekick, and that was me.
