Celebrities are just like us—they love cannabis too! No, but seriously, anyone who uses cannabis has his or her reasons, no debate necessary. Instead, let’s celebrate these outspoken cannabis lovers!
1. Justin Timberlake
This modern day Renaissance man states that he has “absolutely” smoked weed and claims he was actually under the effects of marijuana during his infamous Punk’d episode. “The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high,” said Timberlake.
2. Whoopi Goldberg
The actress, comedian, and co-host of The View is a known and outspoken user of medical marijuana. She uses it to help manage her glaucoma and firmly believes in legalization. Check out her righteous rant on The New York Times’ call to repeal the ban on marijuana last year.
3. Hugh Hefner
The legend who has given us Playboy is also a frequent user of marijuana. He has stated that it helps him tune out distractions, cope with deadlines, handle corporate disputes and focus all of his energy and passion on his pleasure and his partners.
No surprise here – pop’s resident Bad Girl is a frequent and ardent marijuana lover. One look at her social media proves how much Rihanna loves her bud.
5. Cameron Diaz
This A-list actress has graced the silver screen for nearly two decades, but before she became an actress she went to high school with Snoop Dogg. She said on Lopez Tonight,
We went to high school together, [Snoop] was a year older than me. He was very tall and skinny and wore lots of ponytails in his hair and I’m pretty sure I got weed from him. I had to have!
6. Seth Rogen
The king of celebrity stoners, Rogen claims to get high every day. We believe him. Especially in light of news that Sony Pictures producer Amy Pascal was unable to move into her new suite because Rogen and his partner Evan Goldberg stunk up the place with the smell of weed.
7. Lady Gaga
The wacky pop singer claimed that “I smoke a lot of pot when I write music,” on 60 Minutes. “So I’m not gonna, like, sugar coat it for ’60 Minutes’ that I’m some, like, sober human being, ’cause I’m not.”
8. Matthew McConaughey
Before McConaughey underwent a McConaissance, he was arrested in 1999 when police found cannabis at his home in Austin, Texas. The best part? He was also naked.
9. George Clooney
Clooney was surprisingly ousted as a cannabis lover after workers at a certain cannabis cafe in Amsterdam stated that he was a frequent buyer. His confident and ultra-cool personality now make complete sense.
10. Snoop Dogg
You didn’t think we’d forget Snoop, did you? He has to make this list solely off his claim that he carries a “platinum medical marijuana card.” Snoop has even taught his own son how to blaze the right way. “What better way to [learn] than from the master?”
