Actress and comedian Sarah Silverman has never tried too hard to conceal her love of cannabis from the public. Back in 2014, she revealed a vape pen inside of her bag on the Emmy’s Red Carpet, causing a bit of a stir. There are plenty of other instances of Silverman’s weed use.

celebrities who smoke weed By Mark Taylor from Rockville, USA - Whoopi Goldberg
Back in 2016, Whoopi Goldberg and the founder of Om Edibles, Maya Elisabeth, launched their own line of cannabis products. Their company, Whoopi & Maya, sells products to provide relief for menstrual cramps and discomfort. In a 2018 OpEd, Goldberg said that she gave up smoking cigarettes and rolled weed several years ago and noticed a reappearance of her discomfort from glaucoma. “Then something important happened to me. My daughter gave me my first vape pen, and I began to see marijuana as the medicine it is,” said Goldberg in her OpEd. She may not smoke joints anymore, but she remains an activist and producer of cannabis-infused products.

Kevin Smith

While he previously had little experience smoking weed, Kevin Smith became an active cannabis user after being on the set of “Zack and Miri Make A Porno” with Seth Rogen. He loved the drop in inhibition and honesty he felt when reviewing footage with Rogen on their last day of shooting, according to MTV. Smith’s story goes further than that. After experiencing a heart attack he mistook for being too high, Smith’s doctor told him the joint he smoked before the heart attack helped keep him alive. Whether or not the joint was the reason he remained calm and didn’t have a more tragic story from the heart attack remains unclear, but the moral of the story here is that Kevin Smith loves weed.

Ilana Glazer

Comedy Central’s “Broad City” star Ilana Glazer does not stray far from her weed-loving character in real life. Ilana, alongside co-star Abby Jacobson, is seen smoking or handling weed often in the series, and told Flavorwire she smokes every day, adding that she remains very productive using weed. “It feels silly to say, but I like the idea that women carry their own weed and buy their own weed. I like that, because it’s me,” Glazer told the Verge.


Some celebrities try to keep their weed smoke out of the public eye, but not Rihanna. From the photos of her rolling a blunt on her bodyguard’s head to the numerous selfies she’s posted while smoking weed, there’s no question she is shameless about her love for the plant. There are several articles listing off her most iconic weed moments if you’re looking for some inspiration.

While there was once a time where Lady Gaga claimed to be smoking 15 joints per day, it seems her habit has decreased as she’s managed the pain in her hip. In her documentary, Lady Gaga shares a story about smoking nine joints in front of Beyonce and making her uncomfortable. Now, she says she smokes a little bit at night to have fun, not to cope.

Willie Nelson

Legendary country artist Willie Nelson is also a legendary stoner and at the age of 86, he said he smoked his first joint 65 years ago. He told Rolling Stone he is high most of the time these days. And while he now has his own specialty weed line, Willie’s Reserve, Nelson had been jailed for weed in the past but always remained an outspoken advocate for the plant. “It’s nice to watch it being accepted — knowing you were right all the time about it: that it was not a killer drug,” said Nelson in the 2019 interview with Rolling Stone.
