SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA: Michael Douglas was spotted on a brief trip to a marijuana store in his former hometown of Santa Barbara, California on January 18, suggesting he has not given up marijuana, although he admitted he was due it could suffer from memory problems.

The 78-year-old left Coastal Premium Cannabis Dispensary with a tiny black bag containing his purchases. The actor, who appeared unaccompanied to the pit stop by his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, appeared unassuming in a bland dark outfit.

The actor wore an Aviator Nation sweatshirt, which retails for around $165, and features a black lightning bolt across the chest. Douglas wore the shirt with loose-fitting black pants and muted black-and-grey sneakers. The ‘Ant Man’ star wore a black baseball cap over his shaggy white hair and his edgy dark sunglasses perched on the bill of the hat.

Before leaving with his supplies, he spent about 20 minutes at the downtown Santa Barbara pharmacy, the Daily Mail reports. As he revealed in a 2018 interview with lifelong friend and frequent co-star Danny DeVito for Cigar Aficionado, Douglas’ love of marijuana stretches back decades. They were roommates early in their careers before collaborating on a number of projects in the 1970s and 1980s, and the two became close over their shared love of marijuana. “I was on the beach looking at Long Island Sound and this guy comes up to me with this long hair, if you can imagine it,” Douglas recalled. “He says, ‘Are you getting high?’ We were both stoners in 1967, so we smoked a joint and that was the start of a long, long friendship.”

Douglas revealed he struggled with his short-term memory during the coronavirus pandemic in 2021 while speaking to AARP Magazine. “My long-term memory is fine, but my short-term memory isn’t. I used to blame grass for this. But I have some friends who smoke as long as I do and have fabulous memories, so I don’t think that’s the problem. I’m researching it,” he said.

Douglas had lived a significant portion of his life in Santa Barbara, a coastal California town; but the reason for his last visit remained unclear. Kirk Douglas, his late father and a legendary actor, spent much of his time in Santa Barbara and Michael lived there with his first wife, Diandra Luker Douglas. He also received his bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Michael donated $600,000 out of a total of $3.6 million in 1996 to help the city purchase a 70-acre oceanfront property later named the Douglas Family Preserve. Though of Californian descent, Michael now resides in New York City with his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones.
