For better or worse these 10 celebrities kept hitting the marijuana headlines during 2012…
Michael Phelps: Was ‘Smoke on water‘ in 2012 – and America’s proud pot ambassador to the world during the Olympics… the US swimmer can now brag that he is officially the most decorated
athlete Stoner to ever compete in any Olympic Games. 19 Gold medals in total… Not bad for a someone who was caught smoking weed back in 2009.
Snoop Dogg: I feel relatively confident there is no need to try and explain this one. Yet, despite that, I will. Not long ago Snoop fired up the online world of ‘Reddit’, when an inquisitive admire asked the Dogg father approximately how much pot he smokes in the average week? His answer left many dazed and confused… “81 blunts a day x 7.” Some simple math lets us know, Snoop smokes over 567 blunts a week. Damn!
Willie Nelson: Willie has proven himself to be the senior representative amongst the Stoner set. Straightforward and honest, Willie penned a book called “Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die” after having been arrested twice for possession of pot, I think Willy might qualify as country music’s number one marijuana aficionado. While being interviewed by Piers Morgan on CNN this year, Piers bluntly asked if Willie had fired up a bowl before taping the segment… Willie, being Willie thought for a moment, then stated that he could not honestly remember… uttering that, “yup, I probably did.”
Rihanna: Yeah pots expensive! Yet, Rihanna’s 2012 single “Diamonds” highlights an old school black-and-white photo of the Bahamian singer’s skilled fingers twisting a joint made of diamonds. Now – I understand why diamonds are a girl’s best friend. During the song’s video Ri-ri hits the bedazzled blunt and appears rather relaxed for doing so. At the 2012 Coachella music festival Rihanna was caught by the paparazzi high on her security guard’s shoulders, rolling a blunt —using his bald head as a rolling tray.
Kristen Stewart: Self-destructive, or self-assured? On the day that Twilight hit the theaters, Kristen Stewart was caught in a paparazzi’s pic – smoking from a pipe as she sat on the stairs that entered her house. As this pic crawled its way through the gutter of TMZ like sites – looking to profit from others’ misery, some feigned concern over the age of her fans. Though she’s gone on to bigger and uglier controversy, she continues to hold up the pro 420, Hollywood persona, being indiscreet enough to allow herself to be photographed twisting up fat blunts at restaurants and cruising around town sporting her best Stoner gear, a shirt emblazoned with the word “Irie”.
Woody Harrelson: There are a lot of contenders for top Stoner in Hollywood, that being said, Woody Harrelson stands head and shoulders above some of the biggest smokers that call the mecca for creativity home. Sure, there are plenty of great causes for entertainers to support “famine relief”, or “stopping genocide on the African continent”… or, as some have accused Woody of being, a supporter of marijuana legalization. Woody mentioned during a Jimmy Kimmel interview, that smoking weed “…it’s really just something I enjoy.”
Seth Rogen: “I smoke a lot of weed when I write, generally speaking,” – Yep it’s known for helping with creativity…and Seth has definitely demonstrated that. The gifted actor, comedian and writer, had a very frank conversation with David Letterman recently, in which Seth gave Dave the breakdown on getting pot at any local dispensary, and whether or not he could get Barbra Streisand to fire up with him during the filming of his recent movie.
Fiona Apple: As many people before her found out, Sierra Blanca, Texas is the wrong town to travel through if you’re trying to bring weed, hash or any other illegal substance through this backwoods Texas town. During a routine check, the pot and hash were found and confiscated from Fiona Apple on her tour bus. She was later arrested and booked on misdemeanor drug charges. The tiny border town Police Department located Fiona’s marijuana and hash in a blue backpack that was identified by a drug sniffing dog.
Lady Gaga: Like many celebrities, she has made no secret of her fondness for smoking great weed. While touring through Amsterdam Lady Gaga gave a lengthy dissertation explaining to her adoring crowd exactly why she prefers lighting up over having a drink. “I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I’ve really cut down on drinking. It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music.”
Chris Brown: Yeah, his music sucks, but as a means of demonstrating cannabinoids ability to help with anger management issues, how many of us would rather see Chris hitting an oil rig, as opposed to a defenseless and beautiful woman. On a recent trip to Amsterdam Chris took so many wax hits and blunt rips off of some of the Netherlands finest genetics, that he no longer had the time, energy, or inclination to be upset with anyone… least of all his ex –girlfriend.
