In May 2003, McDormand appeared on the cover of High Times magazine holding a joint. "I'm a recreational pot-smoker," she said, revealing she first smoked marijuana as a 17-year-old freshman at Bethany College in West Virginia in 1975. She said, "there has never been enough of a distinction between marijuana and other drugsá.It's a human rights issue, a censorship issue, and a choice issue."
