Fonda: 'We Smoked Real Pot On Easy Rider'

JACK NICHOLSON, PETER FONDA and DENNIS HOPPER smoked real cannabis during a scene for movie classic EASY RIDER.
Fonda has confessed the trio used "real pot" to capture the moment Nicholson's character tries the drug for the first time.
But he refutes longstanding rumours they took LSD on the set of the 1969 movie.
Fonda tells Extra, "We did not take LSD, no matter what the rumours say. You can't make a movie when you're ripped like that."

REAL POT was also used in the sequel, too! Big as starfish, those brightly colored buds were obtained legally through the Cal. Med. Prop. #215 clinic. In the first "Easy" picture, the Las Vegas, New Mexico 4th of July parade is real. It circles the Old Town Plaza and stops just North of the Chicken River Trading Co. head-shop on Hot Springs, Blvd. My wife Jan & I lived just north of there, and knew some of the real characters portrayed in "The Milagro Beanfield War". I'm also in this latest sequel, seen receiving and eating real burritos by the orange bus.
