With all the attention marijuana is currently receiving in the political spotlight, it is no wonder that so many people from around the world are announcing their love for this drug. From the Sydney weed celebration in Australia to the Golden Gate Park cannabis party in the United States, marijuana has taken the world by storm. So, you were probably not surprised when a few celebrities opened up about their experiences with the drug. Let’s take a closer look. Here are three celebrities who have opened up about using marijuana.
You would hardly think that a Disney lady would be a candidate for pot smoker, but Kristen Bell (Anna from Frozen) recently announced that she habitually vapes marijuana. Initially, Bell admitted that she would never smoke around her children. However, her announcement did spark controversy on Twitter because her husband (Dax Shepherd) celebrated 14 years of being sober. Nevertheless, Shepherd supported his wife and ridiculed critics, comparing their situation to a diabetic’s spouse halting the consumption of sugar to make life easier.
Possibly one of the most renowned weed aficionados in entertainment, Snoop Dogg has established himself as a charismatic, smooth-talking pot smoker who has joined the ranks of Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong, and Willie Nelson. The father of four has not escaped controversy, however. In 2012, Snoop addressed the press about and photo in which he posed with his son next to a giant bong. Above all else, he stated the importance of enforcing good behavior but also offering freedom to children.
Since the 1960s, Thelma and Louise and Witches of Eastwick star Susan Sarandon has enjoyed the calming effects of marijuana. However, the red-haired beauty did emphasize the importance of keeping drugs away from juveniles. In a recent interview, Sarandon explained how she continued to smoke marijuana but ensured her kids never had access to it. Once they had grown up, Sarandon continued to smoke weed freely. The actress claims that the drug is less dangerous than alcohol.
