Smoking weed is so cool that even celebrities do it. What’s that you say? Celebrities smoke weed just like you and me?
As incredible as it may seem, fame doesn’t give you the same high that weed does. Just because you get famous doesn’t mean you quit smoking weed. And why should you?
Yet, the government would love to keep weed illegal. So, whenever a celebrity is caught smoking or ingesting pot in any form, we demonize them. Yet, a handful of celebrities are taking back the power, tearing a page out of Colorado’s book and showing the world that weed isn’t criminal, it isn’t bad…in fact, it’s dope.
Here are some seriously famous people who smoke a ton of weed.
- Michael Phelps
Three months following Olympic swimming champion, Michael Phelps’ 8-gold-medal win, he was caught on camera smoking out of a bong that was thought to contain weed. The 23-year-old apologized for acting in a “youthful and regrettable” manner and got over the scandal pretty unscathed. Yep, we were all up in a huff over the greatest Olympian of our time smoking a little weed during his downtime from literally CONQUERING the world with his athletic prowess. LOL.
- Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman might have the face of an angel, but what you might not guess is that Nat also has a taste for the green. The Closer and Black Swan star openly admitted to US Weekly that she was quite the stoner in her college days at Harvard. She’s always been the kind of star who’s been known for her “good girl” look, yet, she isn’t some church-going, straight edge girl. See, even the smart kids smoke weed!
- Snoop Dogg
In a statement that will surprise no one, rapper Snoop Dogg smokes a lot of weed. He even has a song called “Smoke Weed Everyday” for f*ck’s sake. Something you may not know though is that Snoop literally has smoked pot inside of the White House. Well, not exactly inside; he smoked weed in the White House bathroom. He’s just a straight up baller like that.
- Justin Bieber
Local rascal and bonafide d-bag Justin Beiber is also a fan of the pot. The singer was photographed with his then-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, supposedly rolling a joint. I know, I know. It’s so shocking that a teenager with an endless income might touch marijuana. SO crazy, right?
Even our president smokes weed, guys. He’s admitted to getting down with Mary Jane a bunch of different times. in “Dreams Of My Father,” Obama’s memoir, he admitted to felony marijuana and cocaine use. Basically, Obamarama gives zero f*cks and isn’t afraid to admit it. Just because you run the country doesn’t mean you have to abstain from marijuana. Obama’s use just shows how stupid this “Class 1 substance” label really is. I can just imagine Obama and Michelle chilling in the oval office, rolling up a fatty to relieve the stress from a long day of foreign relations. I mean, think about it, if anyone is going to need to smoke weed to chill, isn’t it the president?
- Justin Timberlake
Justin Timberlake is the kind of guy I’d like to smoke with. In an interview with Playboy, Justin Timberlake said that he likes smoking weed because it helps him “stop thinking so much” and just chills him out. You know, why anyone who smokes weed likes smoking weed. Weed has been scientifically proven to help alleviate anxiety. Timberlake is bringing more than just sexy back!
- Bill Clinton
Yep, our 43rd president has smoked weed. GASP! Shut up. Anyway, Bill’s famous words on the subject of Lady J are as follows:
“When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn’t like it. I didn’t inhale and never tried it again.”
Now, he may not have inhaled it, but rumor has it that homeboy had some pretty dope pot brownies back when he was at Oxford. So he may not have been “inhaling” the ganja, but he was FOR SURE feeling that dope body high. I feel you, Willie. Killin’ it.
Rihanna is not shy about her fondness for weed. Take a solid minute to roll through her Instagram feed and her love of the green will become very apparent. The beauty from Barbados finds no shame in her love of weed and displays her use publically. As RiRi puts it herself, “I’d rather be smoking weed whenever we breathe.” I bet you anything Queen Ri rolls some of the most insanely awesome joints known to man.
Kanye West recently gave one of the most interesting, bizarre, and amazing speeches ever at the 2015 VMA Awards. You know why? He said he smoked a bunch of weed before he got on stage!
”The answer is YES. I rolled up a little something. I knocked the edge off.” Kanye admitted.” I’m all about you, Yeezy. That sh*t was profound. Kanye for president!
Here is the video in case you missed it. It is such a crucial watch.
- Miley Cyrus
Now, like RiRi, Miley makes no attempt whatsoever to cover up the fact that she is bonkers for weed. In fact, in multiple interviews, she’s given the lowdown on her smoking habits. For instance, she likes to smoke while listening to Dr. Dre and has a bunch of really impressive bongs. I mean, Miley even smoked weed on stage at the EMAs. That’s how little this girl gives a f*ck about public distaste for marijuana consumption. She isn’t little Hannah Montana anymore, that’s for sure. I’m all about that. Pass the J, Miley!
