The cannabis market is booming, and many famous faces are often seen rolling a joint these days. Hollywood stars are speaking out about marijuana use and supporting its legalization. Who exactly are these celebrities smoking weed?
Superstars like Wiz Khalifa have always been open about their love for pot and have significantly impacted the 420 industry. This rapper has his own brand of marijuana grown from indica cannabis seeds called Khalifa Kush, available in dispensaries across the US.
Other pothead personalities include Martha Stewart, Miley Cyrus, Pete Davidson, Paris Hilton, and Jennifer Lawrence.
Read on to discover more renowned personalities who enjoy smoking weed.
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga, or Stefani Germanotta, is one of the most celebrated music and film industry artists. She has an outspoken personality and often discusses her private life.
Gaga has been open about her marijuana use. In 2013, she smoked 15–20 joints daily to cope with pain due to a severe hip injury. Now, she lights up occasionally for fun and says weed is an excellent way to stimulate creativity.
During an interview, the pop star admitted she smokes a lot of marijuana when writing music.
2. Whoopi Goldberg
Another celebrity known for smoking weed is Whoopi Goldberg. She even wrote an article about how much she loves pot. The piece, titled “My vape pen and I, a love story,” was featured in the Colorado newspaper, The Cannabist.
In the column, the actress notes that every puff relieves her from stress, anxiety, discomfort, and pain. In 2016, she launched Whoopi & Maya, a brand of medical marijuana products meant to ease menstrual cramps. After operating for four years, the company exited the market.
3. Patrick Stewart
Actor Patrick Stewart is a daily cannabis consumer. He revealed his drug use in 2017 while supporting a medical marijuana study at Oxford University. The 82-year-old actor thought that being honest about the drug would dispel the ignorance surrounding MMJ research.
Stewart, who has arthritis, claims he smokes weed to manage pain.
4. Snoop Dogg
Almost everyone is aware of Snoop Dogg’s love for marijuana. He’s known to light up during his shows and has admitted to smoking up to 81 blunts in a day.
Given how high he is every day, you may assume Snoop Dogg doesn’t accomplish much. However, the American rapper is constantly filming commercials, performing on grand stages, and being a cannabis entrepreneur.
He debuted his cannabis brand, Leafs by Snoop, in 2015. His media firm Merry Jane operates an online store with a range of CBD products.
5. Willie Nelson
Willie Nelson is a well-known country music artist. He’s also a cannabis icon and the only individual to out-smoke Snoop Dogg.
The 89-year-old celebrity began using marijuana in the early 1980s after giving up cigarettes and whiskey. However, Nelson’s first encounter with weed was in 1954. Through the years, he’s been a cannabis advocate, speaking about its medical benefits and economic potential.
He runs Willie Reserve, a firm that owns several marijuana dispensaries in the US. Currently, he only uses pot occasionally due to breathing problems. We don’t think he’s joining the list of celebrities who quit smoking weed anytime soon, though.
Rihanna is a fan of the herb and never worries about people finding out she uses marijuana. Photos of the singer smoking pot are all over her Instagram account. She appeared at her 2012 Halloween party dressed as Mary Jane.
In several of her music videos, you can see her puffing away. One unforgettable incident was when she rolled a joint on her security guard’s bald head.
7. Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt is on the list of weed-smoking celebrities but has tamed his pot habits after becoming a father in 2007. He enjoyed it most in the 1990s, referring to those years as his “stoner phase.”
At the time, the Hollywood star was at the peak of his career. He released several movies, such as Interview with the Vampire, Seven, and Fight Club. Sources say he shared joints with other pot-smoking celebrities, including George Clooney, Morgan Freeman, and a few other directors.
8. Seth Rogen
Seth Rogen’s love of the green herb is well-known in real life and movies. He often smokes weed while writing scripts and plays the role of a stoner in several films, including Pineapple Express and Knocked Up.
In 2021, he launched the cannabis company Houseplant with screenwriter Evan Goldberg. The two are very hands-on and only select strains grown from the best weed seeds for their online store. A dedicated team also picks, trims, and packs the buds.
