She has stirred up controversy recently with her provocative sexy image, her wild party life and twerking all over the place. Also, she sings and admits to consuming many drugs. At the 2013 MTV Europe Music awards, she apparently smoked a joint on stage while accepting her award. Clearly, she is a very open pot smoker and constantly reminds the world that "I love weed".

1 Tommy Chong


In the 1960's, Tommy Chong met Cheech Marin and they formed the famous stoner comedy duos, Cheech and Chong. They are known for embracing the hippie counterculture and of course, they love pot. After a long and lucrative career, Tommy and Cheech had a falling out in the 80’s. Cheech was over the pot lifestyle, while Tommy was just getting started. However, in recent years, Tommy Chong had to serve a prison sentence from October 8, 2003 to July 7, 2004, for marketing and selling drug paraphernalia, Chong’s Bongs. Chong pleaded guilty, only so that charges would not be brought against his wife, Shelby Chong and son, Paris. The case and situation formed part of the documentary known as A/K/A: Tommy Chong. Since his release, Cheech and Chong have reformed and have had several tours. Tommy Chong continues his work as a pot activist as a board member of The National Organization for the Reform Law of Marijuana (NORML) and contributes to Cannabis Culture Magazine. In June 2012, he revealed that he had prostate cancer and then on July 15, 2012, Chong sent out a tweet indicating that with the help of Hemp Oil, he was 99 % Cancer Free.
