The word “stoner” has always had a negative connotation around it. The stigma that follows marijuana has been slowly fading in the past years. Although people are still very much against weed, more and more powerful people are coming out saying that they are users of the “drug”. With the legalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes in states like Washington and Colorado, people have begun to educate themselves about what marijuana really is.
Stoners have been stereotyped for years as lacking motivation or having no work ethic, however this is slowly evolving. As weed smokers become more and more acceptable in society, the benefits and good behind the “drug” is being exposed.
The reason I am using the term “drug” is because many people still consider marijuana a drug. With alcohol proven to be more harmful to humans with more personality-altering effects the stigma, which once surrounded weed, is slowly fading, as it should.
The modern day stoners are coming out and standing up to those who do not believe weed should be legalized. Celebrities have a lot of pull on what society believes (sadly) and the following 15 celebrities are all advocates for the legalization of marijuana. People’s marijuana use should not define them nor should society judge them for it. Society needs to educate themselves on marijuana instead of judging those who have a special bond with good old Mary Jane.
The following is a list of fifteen celebrities who would smoke a joint with you any day of the week!
15 Cameron Diaz
14 Miley Cyrus
13 Drew Barrymore
12 Lil Wayne
11 Tommy Chong
10 Woody Harrelson
9 Zach Galifianakis
This man is a legend when it comes to celebrity stoners. The funny man mad a bold statement when he lit up a joint the HBO show Real Time with Bill Maher. Galifianakis pissed off a lot of conservative viewers but he gained the respect of stoners around the globe. Although he is known for never being serious, he is serious about being a stoner. Galifianakis stands for what he believes in and marches to the beat of his own drum. He is cool because he isn’t trying to be cool, he just is.
8 Bill Maher
So maybe it was okay for Galifianakis to light up a joint on his show because he is a pothead, or maybe it's just because Maher is one of the coolest men alive. Maher is a hard working and respected man in his industry; he has had an incredible career and has made a name for himself. Maher got himself into a bit of trouble recently because he lit a joint on live television to prove a point in regards to marijuana legalization. Apparently he must pay a $1.7 million fine for his actions. I’m sure he needed to smoke a big joint after that news!
7 Snoop Dogg
6 Susan Sarandon
5 Amy Poehler
Bad Gal Riri is by far one of the baddest B*tches in show business. She is stunning, talented, outspoken and has always marches to the beat of her own drum. This singer has a business mind set and believes in the cannabis industry. Not only is she a user of the product, she is also planning on launching her own brand of weed which she is going to call MaRihanna. Clever, I know! This island girl really has a laid back mentality and believes weed to not only be therapeutic but also something that should be socially acceptable.
3 Seth Rogen
