An Ode To Our Favorite Celebrity Potheads

Marijuana is having a moment. More and more states are changing their laws to allow for medical, and even recreational, use. Justin Trudeau just introduced a bill to legalize weed throughout Canada. Cannabis is more common than ever, even in the celebrity world. You can bet some movie trailers, video sets, and tour buses will fill with that familiar musky scent, especially today.
420 has become a worldwide code-name for cannabis. Fun fact: The terminology was started by a group of high schoolers who called themselves the Waldos in the ‘70s. They were trying to find a mythical field of pot and would meet at 4:20 pm everyday after school to resume their search. You can listen to the story on this episode of one of my favorite podcasts, Criminal. They never found it, but they founded a term that is used by stoners all around the world. As such, April 20th has become Weed Day.

Obviously, not everyone indulges in marijuana, but you don’t have to be a weed smoker to appreciate these GIFs of a few of our favorite famous potheads. And if you do observe 4/20 as a national holiday, trust me I’m not judging. And you would be in some pretty dope company.
Refinery29 in no way encourages illegal activity and would like to remind its readers that marijuana usage continues to be an offense under Federal Law, regardless of state marijuana laws. To learn more, click here.

Wiz Khalifa

Amber Rose’s ex-husband is an unapologetic stoner. I doubt that he’s actually celebrating 4/20, as he’s made it clear that he already smokes every day. He is so submerged in weed culture that he even has his own strain of the drug, called Khalifa Kush, which is pretty damn impressive if you ask me.

Rihanna

They don’t call her Bad Gal for no reason. You’re not likely to catch Rihanna in a candid moment without a blunt in arms reach. When her friend and assistant Jenn Morales got married on 4/20/15, the superstar blazed up on the beach in her bridesmaids dress. She might intentionally ignore some of Drake’s texts, but it’s probable that sometimes she just forgets. She’s likely throwing a themed soiree today just because she can.

Snoop Dogg

Snoop is the first person who comes to mind when you think of celebrity stoners. He’s probably too high to know what day it is.

A$AP Rocky

The rapper and aspiring fashion icon is not shy about his weed usage. His ideal 4/20 is probably the best rooftop party Harlem has ever seen, complete with supermodels, art kids, and fellow rappers.

Miley Cyrus

When Miley went through her rebellious phase — which included a lot of cultural appropriation — she also came out as an avid supporter of the chronic. She’s probably not doing anything because she doesn’t smoke as much weed as she may lead us to believe.

Waka Flocka

The rapper and Love & Hip Hop star takes his weed pretty seriously. He was the star of a commercial for throat-soothing drops that got banned because of its not-at-all subtle references to blazing up. And then there was the time he was looking to hire someone to roll his blunts — it was a salaried position with benefits.

Cameron Diaz

Not only does Cameron Diaz smoke weed, but she’s done it with her close friend Drew Barrymore. I’ll bet they’re sitting on someone’s porch with a fatty right now.
