Did you know that they found traces of cannabis in clay pipes all up in Stratford-upon-Avon aka Casa de William Shakespeare? Truth. Artists and non-artists alike have relied on the drug for fun and function for centuries. Check out these celebs who don’t need to wait until the end of April to celebrate 4/20.
1. . Miley Cyrus
Let’s start with the queen herself, Miley Cyrus. She's far from shy about her ganja habit. Like, she mentions it more than Trump mentions himself. Her 2013 interview with Rolling Stone bore the headline, “Miley Cyrus on Why She Loves Weed, Went Wild at the VMAs and Much More.” Miley puffs so much that smoke aficionado, Wiz Khalifa, even called it “insane!”
2. . Shia Labeouf
The Captain Obvious parade continues with another totally non-shocking celebrity smoker: Shia Labeouf. LeBeouf has said that he grew up occasionally smoking pot with his “hippie parents.” And he fittingly directed Kid Cudi’s music video “Marijuana” in 2010.
3. . Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga has been very public and open about her struggles with marijuana addiction. She started leaning heavily on pot after a hip injury to deal with the pain, and continued to self-medicate to deal with the pressures of fame. Pot is widely considered to be a non-physically addictive drug, though some experts say a marijuana addiction “is possible.”
4. . Doug Benson
Doug Benson's show is called “Getting Doug with High.” In 2007, he starred in the documentary “Super High Me,” comparing 30 days with the use of marijuana and 30 days without. He is openly proud and vocal about his marijuana use on stage, and has debatably cornered his niche market for super high comedians who talk about how much they love getting high. Sounds about right.
5. . Dave Chapelle
GQ Magazine’s 2014 Man of the Year, Dave Chappelle, makes frequent reference to his weed smoking on stage, and is a general outspoken fan of the reefer. He’s also a comedic genius, nbd.
6. . Rihanna
In 2015, it was rumored the 420 friendly star Rihanna would release her own line of marijuana called MaRihanna. Though the rumor never came to fruition, her Instagram feed is enough to confirm that the singer loves her some cannabis.
7. . Snoop Dog
If you had your heart set on celebrity endorsed pot, never fear. Leafs by Snoop is here! Inspired by his trips around the world, LBS's message is to “medicate, elevate, and put it in the air!” Snoop is a long time pot connoisseur. As he put it in a 2015 interview with The Cannabist, “Since I’ve been at the forefront of this movement for over 20 years now, I’m a master of marijuana.”
8. . Sarah Silverman
In the cold open to her 2013 HBO special We Are Miracles, Sarah Silverman smokes a joint outside of a comedy club. Then in 2014, she got caught marijuana vaping on the red carpet the night she won an Emmy. And in 2015, she talked to Conan O’Brien about getting high with her step-mom. Looks like the only thing she cares about keeping low are them eyes. Right on!
