Marijuana is a pastime that everyone can enjoy. Now that the attitude towards pot is now more accepting than ever, anyone from your college buddy to your elderly next-door neighbor can be a proud stoner. Not to mention the many celebrities who smoke weed, all the way from the early ‘90s to the present day. Here are 20 great examples of celebrity stoners.
1. Snoop Dogg
We’re not telling you anything you don’t know when we say that Snoop Dogg is a huge cannabis connoisseur. Not only does he boast many songs referencing his weed use, but he also has his own brand of marijuana products, known as Leafs by Snoop. He also has a podcast where he gets high with celebrity buddies.
Here’s something you might not have known- while he was no stranger to smoking joints, Tupac gave Snoop his first blunt back in 1993 at the ‘Poetic Justice’ wrap party. When things got tense between Snoop Dogg and Tupac’s entourages, Tupac broke the tension by passing a blunt to Snoop Dogg.
2. Danny DeVito
One celebrity stoner you might not have suspected is Danny DeVito. The man known for movies such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Batman Returns, and Matilda, and of course the hit sitcom Always Sunny In Philadelphia, was once a long-haired, weed-loving hippie back in the ‘60s.
What’s more, Michael Douglas once revealed that the first time he met Danny DeVito was when they shared a joint on the beach in 1967. Douglas was approached by DeVito who asked “do you smoke weed?” before splitting a joint with him, and the rest is history.
3. Sophie Turner
Sophie Turner is probably better known as Sansa Stark, the ruthless Queen of the North in Game of Thrones. However, you might not have known that this prominent English actress is also a big fan of marijuana.
She’s not the only stoner in Game of Thrones, either. Turner revealed at a Comic-Con 2018 panel that her and Maisie Williams, also known as Arya Stark, used to have regular sleepovers where they’d get high and watch funny videos. Turner has also been spotted on an Instagram Live stream seemingly taking hits from a Weed Vape Pen.
4. Seth Rogen
It’s no major shock that famous comedy actor Seth Rogen is also a massive stoner. Of course, Seth Rogen was one of the driving forces behind the 2008 stoner comedy Pineapple Express and even co-wrote the script with Evan Goldberg.
However, while some might assume that his love for marijuana is played up for his roles, it turns out that Rogen is just as much of a weed enthusiast in real life. Future Man co-star Josh Hutcherson claimed that Seth Rogen would bring seven joints to work and smoke weed between takes.
5. Miley Cyrus
Once known as the innocent child star behind Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus became a huge advocate of marijuana in her adult years. She’s been quoted as saying that marijuana is the best drug on earth and has made multiple public appearances while under the influence of weed.
On one Jimmy Fallon appearance, Miley Cyrus even revealed to the talk show host that more than one of her previous appearances on the show were done while she was high on marijuana.
6. Barack Obama
Barack Obama was famously open about his past marijuana use while he was president. Although there were no major reforms for marijuana on the federal level, Obama was quoted as saying that marijuana ‘should be treated like cigarettes or alcohol’ before he stepped down from his post as president.
Obama’s marijuana use goes way back to his youth. Reportedly he and his childhood friends were known as the "Choom Gang", with “choom” being a term used in Hawaii to refer to smoking weed.
7. Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey is another actor that’s been very open about his love for marijuana. He even revealed in a Howard Stern interview that he was high during one scene in Dazed and Confused where he famously tells his co-actors to “watch the leather, man”.
McConaughey was even arrested on suspicion of marijuana use in 1999. After a noise complaint from the police, they busted into his house to find McConaughey naked and playing the bongos at 2 AM with a Bong on the table, leading to a particularly hilarious mugshot. Fortunately, he avoided going to jail and was only briefly detained.
8. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga has been known to experiment with all kinds of different outfits, projects, and even personas. As such, it’s probably not too much of a shocker that Lady Gaga has also experimented with marijuana.
She’s been candid about her cannabis use in many public appearances- including her documentary where she revealed that she once smoked multiple joints in front of Beyoncé and Jay-Z. She also once revealed that she often used marijuana to help her deal with anxiety symptoms, sometimes smoking as many as 15 joints a day.
9. Megan Fox
Thanks to her appearances in the Transformers franchise, her stint in the FOX sitcom New Girl, and various other TV show and movie appearances, Megan Fox was easily one of the most well-known actresses for a good length of time in the 2000s. As such, marijuana lovers will be happy to know she also loves weed.
Megan Fox has spoken about her cannabis use in interviews in the past, revealing that she’s often had to deal with backlash due to her openness about her love of weed. She also once claimed that she’d be the first in line to buy nine joints when marijuana is legalized.
10. Brad Pitt
With an impressive body of work and many widely-reported relationships, Brad Pitt has long been one of the most famous A-list actors in the world. He’s also long been a huge enthusiast of marijuana.
Various sources claim that Brad Pitt is an artist at rolling joints- including himself. It’s also been rumored that part of the breakdown of his relationship with Angelina Jolie was due to his marijuana use.
11. Nick Diaz
Fans of MMA will know Nick Diaz as the cult legend who had a string of exciting fights in the UFC and Strikeforce promotions. On top of his career as a fighter, Nick Diaz is a well-known advocate for marijuana and has often faced fines, suspensions, and other punishments for using marijuana during his fight career.
Despite his marijuana use getting him into hot water during his career, Nick Diaz still stood by his passion. Famously, after being asked whether he thought his marijuana use got in the way of his career, Diaz reportedly responded with “On the contrary, my fight career has gotten in the way of my marijuana smoking.”
12. Willie Nelson
Willie Nelson might be one of the oldest celebrities who has always been open about his love for marijuana. The 87-year-old country artist is legendary for his marijuana use and Snoop Dogg even once claimed that Willie Nelson is the only man to ever out smoke him.
Nelson has long been an activist for marijuana and is even a co-chair of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). He’s claimed that he stays high pretty much all day long and that marijuana saved his life and stopped him from drinking.
13. Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa is another artist that’s known just as much for his marijuana advocacy as he is for his music. Wiz Khalifa is now said to be one of the most impactful cannabis influencers on social media, as well as making various references to his marijuana use in his songs.
The successful rapper has often partnered with cannabis companies to promote their goods and even launched his own strain, known as “Khalifa Kush”. He’s also pushed for marijuana legalization in the United States various times.
14. Michael Phelps
With an astonishing 28 Olympic medals to his name- including the record for gold medals, Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian and most successful competitive swimmer of all time. He’s also known for indulging in marijuana use.
Michael Phelps was hit by a huge scandal in 2009 after a photo of him using a Bong made headlines. This resulted in him losing his Kellogg’s sponsorship as well as being temporarily suspended by USA Swimming. The incident would likely be seen much differently today as the perks of marijuana use are now much more widely known and accepted.
15. Pete Davidson
The Saturday Night Live comedian and ex-fiancé of Ariana Grande has spoken out various times about his marijuana use. Davidson has claimed that weed helped with his Crohn’s disease and borderline personality disorder and even helped him perform on Saturday Night Live.
Davidson even once claimed that he had been using weed every day for eight years. However, after taking a break from drugs, he had to ask fans to stop sending weed to his mom’s house so he wouldn’t be too tempted to indulge.
16. Woody Harrelson
Another celebrity that smokes weed is Woody Harrelson. The actor first gained prominence after starring in Cheers and has had a successful TV and movie career ever since. However, outside of his acting career, Harrelson is also a marijuana activist and an advisory board member of the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
Woody Harrelson has claimed to frequently travel with extremely strong weed. He also claimed that he tried quitting his weed habit, but ended up ending his smoking break years later after an encounter with fellow celebrity stoner Willie Nelson.
17. Charlize Theron
Despite being born and raised in South Africa, Charlize Theron became one of the most prominent actresses in Hollywood after starring in films such as The Devil’s Advocate, The Cider House Rules, and Monster. Like many other famous Hollywood stars, she’s also a fan of marijuana.
Theron has stated that she appreciates marijuana far more than other substances and used to wake and bake regularly. She was photographed using an Apple Pipe back in the early 2000s and also stated in 2018 that her mom would drop off marijuana edibles at her house.
18. Marilyn Monroe
Born Norma Jeane Mortenson, Marilyn Monroe became known as one of the biggest American actresses, models, and sex symbols of the 1950s and 1960s. Despite her untimely death, Monroe’s legacy has lived on for over half a decade and she’s still known as a beauty icon.
A lesser-known fact is that Marilyn Monroe also enjoyed indulging in marijuana. This became news after a video was released in 2000 showing her smoking a joint. The video soon went on to sell for $275,000. She also had a strain named after her- the indica-dominant strain “Marilyn Monroe”.
19. Morgan Freeman
Known for his distinctive voice, incredible acting, and well-spoken views, Morgan Freeman is a legend for various reasons. As such, marijuana fans will be happy to know that Freeman is also a massive advocate for marijuana legalization.
Freeman has openly stated many times that he believes marijuana should be legal and that it has many therapeutic benefits- having used it himself to relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia. He’s also experimented with various methods of cannabis consumption from smoking joints to taking Marijuana Edibles.
20. Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake initially became known as the youngest member of the 1990s boy band NSYNC. However, he soon went on to reform his image and become a serious actor and solo artist, retaining his relevance to the present day. Timberlake is also one of the many celebrities who smoke weed.
Like many other marijuana users, the mentally and physically relaxing effects are the biggest draw for the Hollywood star. Timberlake has claimed in various interviews that he finds that weed helps him calm down and stop thinking so much.
From rappers to actors to athletes to U.S. presidents, stoners come from all kinds of backgrounds. These examples just go to show that anyone can enjoy cannabis for all kinds of reasons. You can also enjoy it in various ways. Whether you prefer rolling joints, hitting a Bong, or using a handy Glass Pipe, you can find the accessories you need at Fat Buddha Glass.
