From Andy Warhol (who didn’t partake) to Jeff Sessions (who definitely didn’t partake) and George Washington (a president who did inhale), all 15 of these people have some famous quotes that are about your favorite herb.
1. Andy Warhol
I think pot should be legal. I don’t smoke it, but I like the smell of it.
2. Thomas Jefferson
Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country.
3. George Washington
Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.
Kush rolled, glass full… I prefer the better things!
5. Bob Marley
Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction.
6. Bill Clinton
I tried marijuana once. I did not inhale.
7. Jay Leno
40 million Americans smoked marijuana; the only ones who didn’t like it were Judge Ginsberg, Clarence Thomas and Bill Clinton.
8. Louis Armstrong
It really puzzles me to see marijuana connected with narcotics… dope and all that crap. It’s a thousand times better than whiskey — it’s an assistant — a friend.
9. Ronald Reagan
I now have absolute proof that smoking even one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-bomb blast.
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.
11. Arnold Schwarzenegger
That is not a drug. It’s a leaf.
12. 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?
13. Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Good people don’t smoke marijuna.
14. Russell Brand
We all need something to help us unwind at the end of the day. You might have a glass of wine, or a joint, or a big delicious blob of heroin to silence your silly brainbox of its witterings but there has to be some form of punctuation, or life just seems utterly relentless.
15. Joe Rogan
Prison is for rapists, thieves, and murderers. If you lock someone up for smoking a plant that makes them happy, then you’re the fucking criminal.
