It’s no secret that a large number of celebrities love weed. From Seth Rogan to Whoopi Goldberg, there are stars on all sorts of different career paths that are doing their part to let the world know that it’s okay to smoke pot. While some do this by sparking up in the public eye, others use their words to express how they feel. And a lot of times, all it takes is a meaningful message to help people see cannabis in a positive light. To point out a few of the best, here are 15 of the most impactful celebrity quotes about weed.
1. Bill Murray
I find it quite ironic that the most dangerous thing about weed is getting caught with it.
2. John Lennon
Marijuana was the main thing that promoted non-violence amongst the youth, because as soon as they have it, they- first of all you have to laugh on your first experiences.
There’s nothing else you do but laugh, and then, when you’ve got over that and you realize that people aren’t laughing at you, but with you, it’s a community thing, and nothing would ever stop it, nothing on earth is going to stop it, and the only thing to do is to find out how to use it for good, or for best.
3. Tommy Chong
Sometimes you just got to say f*uck it and smoke a big ass joint.
4. Stewie Griffin
Everything is better with a bag of weed!
5. Melissa Etheridge
Instead of taking five or six of the prescriptions, I decided to go a natural route and smoke marijuana.
6. Willie Nelson
I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If he put it here and he wants it to grow, then what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?
Willie hit the nail on the head.
7. Snoop Dogg
It’s from the earth – it’s not some man-made shit. It’s actually growing from the ground straight to you, so it’s just like eating a vegetable. You know what I’m saying?
Cancer and diseases that never had a cure, now all of a sudden you got people taking chemotherapy, and they’re also having a toke, and they live longer.
8. Susan Sarandon
I believe in individual rights, I mean, I would like to see everybody be able to smoke pot. That’s a waste of our money to incarcerate all those people. I’m totally a libertarian in that sense.
9. Bob Marley
Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.
Yes indeed, Mr. Marley.
10. Chris Rock
I’m all for the legalization of weed. I have two daughters, too, but we all know that alcohol is worse and legal. Seth Rogan is a productive member of society. Mel Gibson has a problem.
11. Arnold Schwarzenegger
That is not a drug. It’s a leaf.
12. Kirsten Dunst
If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place.
13. Nick Offerman
Marijuana is quite possibly the finest of intoxicants. It has been scientfically proven, for decades, to be much less harmful to the body than alcohol when used on a regular basis.
14. Bill Hicks
Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit… unnatural?
15. Carl Sagan
The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.
