When people hear the word pothead, they often think of characteristics such as sleepy, lazy, and unmotivated. However, this collection of people couldn't be more opposite. These are some of the most famous, talented, and richest people in the world. They work hard, play hard, and fight for what they believe in. Many of these celebrities claim weed has saved them from more dangerous paths and influenced some of their greatest work. There are comedians, TV personalities, song writers, and singers who all smoke weed, and a lot of it. Instead of hiding behind their fame, they use their exposure as a platform to share their personal use of weed, assist in national legalization efforts, and promote the use of medical marijuana. They find no shame in their pot smoking game; and for that, I applaud them. Here are 12 of the coolest, most famous stoners of all times.
There's no denying that there is a relationship between weed and music, and we're not just talking about the pop stars who love weed. Cannabis is very popular among many walks of life, from rappers to athletes to even the average Joe like you and me. At least as far back as the Beatles (though it certainly goes back as far as Louie Armstrong and other early jazz greats), cannabis has had some association with creativity. While it is not for everyone, it would seem that a disproportionate number of pop stars share an enjoyment of cannabis. Publications like High Times have been some of the few outlets where famous people were willing to admit their love of marijuana. As the push to legalize marijuana marches on, medical marijuana and recreational weed are becoming more acceptable in mainstream culture. While weed is most closely associated with a few specific musical acts—Willie Nelson, Bob Marley, and Jimi Hendrix just to name a few—there are many more mainstream pop stars who love weed and smoke weed regularly.
"I was gonna finish this article, and then I got high..." Thankfully, I did get around to completing this, but not without some help from some of my favorite stoner rap songs. It's no secret that there is a deep relationship between weed and music. Most of your favorite rappers probably spark up every once in a while—or every day (but hey, we're not judging!). Rappers who love weed often foster and support 420 culture. This might be a subjective opinion, but rappers who love to smoke often spit cerebral, surprisingly deep bars and we can't deny that it's probably a result of the weed offering up alternative creative outlets. But we're not complaining! Pass the dutchie and let's take a look at the rappers who love weed (probably just as much as we do.)
Weed has become the “in” thing in Hollywood—and not just because of the popularity of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. It’s edgy, but at the same time, still allows people to function. It’s a perfect treat for the rockstar type.
Millions of Americans have smoked marijuana, and plenty more don't smoke but are okay with both recreational and medical marijuana. That explains the broad appeal of the funniest celebrity weed quotes, which are often uttered by people not even intending to be funny. Instead, the origin of a lot of the quotes is just the expression of how frustrating and ridiculous it is that the chronic is illegal in the USA. In fact, nowadays most people agree that weed should be legalized. And we can all use a laugh when we're confronted with the absurd!
As the cannabis industry expands and more states begin to legalize marijuana, the number of people who smoke weed is increasing. It's no secret that weed is the drug of choice for a lot of the stars. Throughout history, numerous figures have been open about their enthusiasm for the substance. Potheads have existed for longer than one would expect. This list highlights some of the most famous potheads in history.
Louis Armstrong is often remembered as one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time. While others have developed and elevated the art form in different and unique directions, it is undeniable that Armstrong brought his own brand of soul to this then-emerging art form. He broke boundaries as one of the first African-American celebrities to receive near-universal acclaim for his talents.
While states in the US are legalizing marijuana use, it still retains its illegality in many countries and in many states in the US. This, however, hasn’t stopped plenty of Olympic athletes from speaking out and stating that they support weed. It turns out, everyone who smokes weed doesn’t end up couch locked in front of a bowl of Doritos, just like everyone who drinks a beer doesn’t end up in the drunk tank.
Have you ever wondered, what are the best weed snapchats I should be following? If you have, it would make a great deal of sense given the increasingly interconnected world we live in and the fact that there has been tremendous progress made on rolling back marijuana prohibitions. As a result more and more people are turning to social media, and Snapchat in particular to get marijuana news, stories, and information. That being said, let’s explore the best weed snapchats today.
A few weeks ago I was sitting at my desk, typing away at yet another shit stirring story over the perils of marijuana prohibition, when I received a Twitter notice from one of my readers claiming that comedian and all around wise man Joe Rogan was on the air discussing an article I had written for High Times. Being the curious little bastard that I am, I followed the link and I'll-be-damned, sure as shit, there he was, reading a little piece of journalism I had penned back in 2013 entitled "AA Founder Believed LSD Could Cure Alcoholism."
All the witnesses agree: during the last months of his life, Bruce Lee was heading for a crack-up. No matter how you sized him up, the danger signals were unmistakable. The most obvious signal was weight loss. During his best years, Lee—who stood between 5' 6" and 5' 7" and was very lightly boned—built himself up through diet and exercise to a peak of 155 pounds. Now this extra poundage began to melt away. Eventually, he went down to 120. When Danny Inosanto, Lee's principal disciple, saw his master for the last time, he was shocked by the change in his appearance. “You’re too thin!” he warned. “How are you going to get your full power?” "My full power?” hissed Lee, “How about this?” With that he gave Inosanto a shoulder shot that sent the disciple flying 12' across the room. All the same, Lee was concerned about his inexplicable weight loss. His solution was to adopt a particularly nauseating diet: congealed bull's blood mixed with raw hamburger steak.
