More celebrities are openly talking about their love for cannabis. And while the most accomplished thing many of us will ever do while high is binge watch an entire season of Stranger Things, these stars have smoked to write hit songs and blockbuster films. They’ve also parlayed their passion for pot into business ventures and become outspoken advocates of its medicinal benefits. There are many celebrities who smoke weed and love doing it.
Here are the 10 Celebrities Who Smoke Weed
Rihi’s Instagram feed is filled with glorious photos of her smoking fat blunts in hot tubs, while surfing the ocean and during magazine photo shoots. But the most iconic cannabis-inspired photo of the A-lister captures her at Coachella perched on the shoulders of her body guard and rolling a joint atop his bald head.
The Grammy and Academy-award winning superstar reveals in her 2017 documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, that she was smoking more than 15 joints a day to write songs and to feel more creative – as well as treat chronic joint and hip pain. She has since cut back.
The billionaire rapper, producer and entrepreneur has used weed to help him write. “I smoked some weed, and that’s how I finished Izzo,” he’s said about his massive single. But he’s also used his love of weed – and star power – to support California’s Proposition 64, the voter initiative that led to legalized cannabis in the state in 2018. More recently, Jay-Z has worked on a short film on the failed history of the U.S.’s war on drugs for the New York Times. In July he joined California-based cannabis company Caliva as a brand strategist.
Is there a celebrity who loves to smoke weed as much as Snoop Dogg? For decades, he’s been rapping about his love for weed, sometimes while using a diamond-encrusted marijuana leaf microphone. In the past few years, he’s turned that passion into his own cannabis brand, Leafs by Snoop, which is produced by Canopy.
Sir Patrick Stewart
Sir Patrick Stewart has used cannabis medicinally on a daily basis to treat the ortho-arthritis in both his hands. the British actor has also lauded an Oxford University program researching cannabinoid biomedicine. He says is “an important step forward for Britain in a field of research that has far too long been held back by prejudice, fear and ignorance.”
The fabled country singer-songwriter has for decades extolled the medical and economic benefits of weed, saying in a recent interview in Rolling Stone that it saved his life. In 2015, he started his own company, Willie’s Reserve, which produces flower, vape cartridges and edibles. The 86-years-old musician says he still gets high every day.
The actor and comedian has been using weed to help alleviate pain from menstrual cramps since she was a teenager. In 2016, she launched Whoopi & Maya Medicinal, a line of THC- and CBD-infused bath salts, tinctures and balms to help treat period pain.
The Oscar-winning actor has a long history with cannabis on and off the screen. He launched his career in the coming-of-age flick, Dazed and Confused, and this year, he starred as a hedonistic burnout alongside Snoop Dogg in The Beach Bum. Snoop reportedly swapped the prop weed of oregano and other herbs for actual weed during shooting of the film. McConaughey was stoned for nine hours. The movie star is also the lead character in one of the most outlandish cannabis-related arrest stories in Hollywood. It happened in 1999 when cops were called to his Texas home and discovered him playing the bongos naked at 2 a.m. He was arrested for suspected possession of marijuana after paraphernalia was found on the premises. The charges were later dropped.
There are few people who could pull off a deep-cut, marijuana leaf-inspired bodysuit like Miley Cyrus. But after many, many Instagram photos of the pop star rolling joints, taking bong hits and smoking blunts the size of a newborn baby’s arm, Cyrus announced in 2017 that she was taking a hiatus from herb. Now she’s back, but only smoking after she’s done work for the day. Moderation is key.
Canada’s most beloved pothead is best known for co-writing the modern-day stoner classic Pineapple Express with screenwriter Evan Goldberg. Apparently, the office the duo used throughout production of the film smelled so pungently of weed that it had to be renovated before Sony exec Amy Pascal could move in. Goldberg and Rogen are also frequent collaborators in business. The two launched new cannabis brand Houseplant earlier this year.
