Marijuana legalization is booming in the U.S. right now and many celebrities have taken advantage of this situation to start speaking up about their cannabis use. Some of them certainly have not been shy to show their love for cannabis. Whether they are openly talking about it or using metaphors to do so, there are plenty of celebrities you would have never imagined that love weed.
The 78-year-old actor Patrick Stewart admitted in 2017 that he smokes cannabis every day. Stewart announced his marijuana use in order to support a new initiative by Oxford University to research medical cannabis. Suffering from arthritis, Stewart said he uses marijuana to help to manage his pain. He expected that by announcing his cannabis use, that would delete any “prejudice, fear, and ignorance” related to the stigma.
Snoop Dogg may be one of the most outspoken celebrities cannabis is brought up. If you’ve been to one of his shows or at least heard of it, you know that he’s coming onto the stage lighting a joint. Snoop once said, “So what if I’m smokin’ weed onstage and doing what I gotta do? It’s not me shooting nobody, stabbing nobody, killing nobody. It’s a peaceful gesture and they have to respect that and appreciate that.”
Megan Fox is also a cannabis enthusiast. In 2009, she told in an interview to GQ “I hope they legalize [cannabis] and when they do, I’ll be the first f**king person in line to buy my pack of joints.”
Jennifer Aniston has admitted a few times to smoking weed, saying “I enjoy smoking cannabis and see no harm in it.” In an interview in 2001 when asked about her reputation of being a pothead, she said “That’s a funny one, too. Because you see something like that—me and my husband, hooked on drugs. Then you read the story, and it says you smoke pot. It’s not even cocaine or shooting heroin. Pot!… I mean, I enjoy it once in a while. There’s nothing wrong with that.”
The former Disney sweetheart Miley Cyrus is one of those celebrities who has practically always been open about smoking weed. She even wrote some songs about it. Miley once said cannabis is “the best drug on Earth.”
Rihanna is probably side to side with Snoop Dog when it comes to posting pictures on her Instagram with joints. In fact, she has dressed up as Mary Jane for Halloween before.
Charlize Theron is one of those celebrities who unfortunately got caught smoking weed by the paparazzi. The actress was spotted smoking cannabis out of homemade apple bong back in 2002.
Cameron Diaz, who was school classmates with Snoop Dog, told George Lopez she bought weed from the rapper, “We went to high school together. He was a year older than me… I remember him, he was very tall and skinny, he wore lots of ponytails… I’m pretty sure I bought weed from him.”
Madonna has mentioned quite a few times that she smokes cannabis. In an interview with David Letterman on 2004, she admitted having smoked weed before going to an interview on his show back in 1994.
Brad Pitt once told Bill Maher he was “an artist” in rolling the most perfect joints. He also said he had spent most of the late 90s “hiding out from the celebrity thing… smoking way too much dope.” When he was married to Jennifer Aniston, both held the reputation of being potheads.
