Many famous people smoke weed. As the culture around cannabis continues to shift toward more acceptance, the number of celebrities who smoke weed openly continues to increase. You may already know about Seth Rogan or Snoop Dogg’s smoking habits, but let’s take a look at some other famous people who smoke weed.
After surviving a car accident that left him in a great deal of pain, Freeman remains a large advocate for marijuana use. “I’ll eat it, drink it, smoke it, snort it,” said Freeman in an interview with the Daily Beast. He said his wife got him into it years ago, and that cannabis is the only thing that helps his fibromyalgia pain.
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. From her sharing stories of using cannabis with her stepmom and dad to her appearance on “My Drunk Kitchen” where she smokes weed with Hannah Hart before cooking a meal, there’s no question she is a true marijuana enthusiast.
The former Disney star turned singer, actress, and director Bella Thorne has recently started her own weed brand. "I have struggled with anxiety for many years, and weed was the one source I found for me to do the most healing. Because of the properties in weed, I have been able to cope with my anxiety in a natural way, rather than my doctors trying to fix it using prescription drugs,” shared Thorne in a press release.
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.
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.

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.
