James Gandolfini Totally Mellow on Marijuana Questions

EXCLUSIVE


We're not saying James Gandolfini inhaled ... we're just saying he's unusually chill when it comes to talking about his recent visit to a famous marijuana dispensary.

TMZ broke the story ... James and a friend were photographed at The Farmacy in Venice, CA.

We're told he was just window shopping, but when we ran into James and his wife leaving dinner at E Baldi in Bev Hills last night -- we had to ask about his trip, or ... tripping.

You gotta see his response, and note the giggles.

Just sayin'.
