Anthony AndersonComedian Anthony Anderson is one of the few people in America who can enjoy marijuana legally - he is prescribed the drug to alleviate chronic joint pain.

Anderson was stunned by the different shapes, sizes and varieties the drug comes in and he insists it really works.

He says, "I went to the doctor for this chronic elbow problem, and he told me he had some chronic medicine that he could prescribe to me that would alleviate the pain. So I went to this holistic doctor and basically got a prescription for wacky tabacky. You go to the pot store, or what they call a Wellness Center. They have everything. They make a marijuana butter."

The mischievous star even shared his medicine with some TV co-stars, explaining, "I was on a show called K-Ville and they heard about my baking goods. So I baked brownies for the whole crew. That's probably why the show didn't come back (was canceled)."

But Anderson admits he became a little too reliant on the legal buzz: "I had to renew my prescription and I thought I had to manufacture a new ailment to get it back I didn't know I could go back and say I've got chronic elbow pain. I told them I was seeing spots and they renewed it for me."
