Moviemaker Oliver Stone is contemplating a career change, he is considering becoming part of California's marijuana rush - because the state produces the best weed in the world and big money is exchanging hands.

The longtime pot advocate briefly spent time behind bars in the late 1960s when he was caught in possession of the drug at the Mexico/U.S. border, but he admits he's often tempted to risk another stint in jail.

The Platoon director tells High Times magazine, "If you appreciate California weed - as I have for many years - you'll realize that we're somewhat close to the money when we say that California has surpassed Thailand, Jamaica, South Sudan and certainly Mexico as the king and queen of quality weed."

"I'm thinking myself of getting into the business, although I suspect there'd be a lot of stress with the Feds (federal agents) changing the rules all the time."
