19 Celebs Who Publicly Show Their Affection for Marijuana


Mary Jane. Reefer. Weed. Ganja.

Marijuana is perhaps one of the most common, mainstream drugs in use today. It’s appreciated for its mellowing effects as well as the ways in which it can influence creativity, so it’s perhaps not too radical a statement to say that the relationship between marijuana and various celebrities is very strong. Whether they use it to disconnect from the hectic celebrity lifestyle or smoke to help get the creative juices flowing, there’s no doubt that marijuana and artistic endeavors go hand-in-hand. There are tons of celebrities who have made their love of this groovy, mind-altering drug known. Some have gone on to not only be prolific smokers but also grow their own strains of weed and sell it across the United States.

So, let’s take a look at some of the iconic celebs and some surprising ones who love their bud, shall we?


Rihanna is very public about her affection for weed. Whether speaking about it in interviews or posting her smoking habits on Instagram or Snapchat, the “Wild Thoughts” singer loves her herb, and there are no signs she’s stopping now. She’s had some particularly memorable weed moments as well, including that time she rolled a blunt on the head on her security guard at Coachella while she was sitting on his shoulders and when she dressed up like the Bride of Mary Jane for Halloween in 2012.

Snoop Dogg

It’s not inaccurate to say that Snoop and marijuana go together like peanut butter and jelly. His smoking habits and love of the drug have been known for a majority of his career, making him one of the foremost public proponents of smoking weed.

In 2016, Snoop celebrated the legalization of weed in California with a celebratory tweet and a fitting hashtag: #smokeweedeveryday.

Cheech & Chong

The original stoner bros of the celeb world have to be comedians Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. The pair broke out into the mainstream with ’70s buddy comedies like Up in Smoke and Still Smokin’ that pitched them as lovable potheads.

Chong, the particularly vocal one of the pair, celebrated the legalization of weed in California in 2016 with a photo of himself sitting next to a shelf of weed varietals. He also waxed poetic about his love of weed during a Reddit AMA, where he said that he loves to smile when he’s high and talked about how he has his own strain of weed, which he currently sells in dispensaries across the country.

Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi has documented his loving relationship with weed in his music. In fact, he’s is so well-know for his love of bud that he’s been nicknamed “The Lonely Stoner,” thanks to the pensive tone his music takes on when he raps about his weed-fueled thoughts.

Cameron Diaz

In 2011, Cameron Diaz revealed that she used to buy weed from Snoop Dogg when they were both teenagers. “We went to high school together. He was a year older than me… I remember him, he was very tall and skinny,” Diaz said. “I’m pretty sure I bought weed from him. I was green even in high school!”

Seth Rogen

Rogen is perhaps one of the most prominent tokers in Hollywood. Nearly every one of his films features heavy pot smoking in fun or goofy situations (see: This Is The End, Pineapple Express, Sausage Party). When MTV interviewed Rogen in 2011, he spoke about how he uses it to help him write.

“I smoke a lot of weed when I write, generally speaking,” he said. “I don’t know if it helps me write. It makes me not mind that I’m writing. And I don’t know if it makes me work better, but it makes me not care that I’m working. Who wants to work? But if you’re stoned, it doesn’t seem like work.”

Matthew McConaughey

The Oscar winner has had a longtime love affair with weed. One of the first notable reveals is that he was arrested in 1999 for resisting arrest after he was discovered with weed in his car. McConaughey has made other references to his weed smoking in the past, including during a recent interview with Stephen Colbert.
