Famous Marijuana Addicts: Celebrities who Smoke Weed
It’s no secret that Hollywood is a pro-marijuana town, and though we know that dozens of celebrities, from Rihanna to Paris Jackson, are huge weed smokers, there are many stars who keep their passion for pot on the down-low. But that doesn’t mean that their love for weed is any less than those who blaze up daily on Instagram.
On her daughter Kourtney Kardashian’s 39th birthday, Jenner was Instagrammed smoking not one but two joints, leading fans to wonder if the momager was an undercover pothead. Turns out, Jenner has a history of smoking weed, as seen in an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” when she blazes up with her mom, MJ. (“We think it would be a good idea for MJ to try out some MJ.”) Much to the dismay of her husband, Jenner and her mom end up in a high laughing fit.
“I don’t know how to stop laughing,” Jenner says, wiping her tears with a napkin.
When Playboy asked Timberlake whether he smokes marijuana, his answer was: “Absolutely.”
“The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off,” Timberlake explained. “Some people are just better high.”
The Your Highness star admitted to Entertainment Weekly that she was a bit of a stoner during her college days at Harvard University.
Goldberg uses medical marijuana to help her cope with glaucoma and firmly believes in legalization.
It’s no secret that Cyrus is a big fan of weed, so much so that she lit up on stage at the European Music Awards in 2013. She even sold $65 packs of edible gold rolling papers at her Bangerz tour.
Though she wouldn’t describe herself as a “pothead,” Aniston admitted in a 2001 interview with Rolling Stone that she does smoke weed from time to time. The “Friends” actress revealed her weed habits to shut down rumors that she and her then-husband Brad Pitt were addicted to harder drugs, such as cocaine and heroin.
“That’s a funny one, too. Because you see something like that—me and my husband, hooked on drugs. Then you read the story, and it says you smoke pot. It’s not even cocaine or shooting heroin,” Aniston said. “Pot!… I mean, I enjoy it once in a while. There’s nothing wrong with that. Everything in moderation. Geez, Louise. I’m drowning and I can’t get out. I wouldn’t call myself a pothead. Let’s pick a new topic, please? My mother and father will be reading.”
For years, Dunst has been a proponent of America’s legalization of marijuana. In a 2007 interview with MTV, the actress opened up about how weed, in moderation, has helped her become a better actor and a more creative person.
“I do like weed. I have a different outlook on marijuana than America does. My best friend Sasha’s dad was Carl Sagan, the astronomer. He was the biggest pot smoker in the world, and he was a genius,” Dunst said. “I’ve never been a major smoker, but I think America’s view on weed is ridiculous. I mean—are you kidding me? If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place. I’m not talking about being stoned all day, though. I think if it’s not used properly, it can hamper your creativity and close you up inside.”
Jim Carrey spoke candidly of his relationship to marijuana in an interview with Howard Stern
He said, “I’ve had an addiction to pot from time to time. A compulsion to it. It all stems from how much pressure you’re under. If you’re under a lot of pressure, a joint feels so good to get off the planet that you just might decide to do it for a couple of months. I’ve had periods of time like that, but I don’t create anymore. That’s the trouble and that’s what’s always kept me away from going down that road too far is that I noticed I stopped painting. Figuratively, I stopped creating, and I stopped being social.”
Carrey went on to say, “There’s this illusion out there that there’s nothing addictive about it,” and “the fact is anything that stimulates the pleasure center of your brain can become addictive. It doesn’t have to be a scientifically addictive thing—it’s a habit-forming thing.”
Diaz has been smoking pot for a while — so long, in fact, that Snoop Dogg was her dealer when she was a teenager.
Fox opened up about her support for the legalization of marijuana in a 2009 interview with British GQ, in which she called the stigmatization of weed “propaganda.” “I can’t tell you how much bullshit I’ve been through because I will openly say that I smoke weed. People look at it like it’s this crazy, hippie, fucked-up thing to do. And it’s not! I hope they legalize it, and when they do, I’ll be the first fucking person in line to buy my pack of joints,” Fox said.
Stewart told Vanity Fair that she doesn’t care who judges her for smoking pot.

Out of every celebrity who smokes weed, Lawrence is up there with Rihanna for who we want to blaze up the most with. In a 2015 interview on “Watch What Happens Live,” the actress revealed that she has smoked weed before an Oscars ceremony—though she wouldn’t name which one.
“I saw my brother smoking out of a bong before one of the Oscars, which I won’t say which one,” Lawrence said.
In a 2017 interview with Variety, Lawrence also expressed pride over the time that she out-smoked her “Hunger Games” costar Woody Harrelson, who is notoriously a big smoker. “Woody Harrelson told me, ‘Slow down, Jen, this isn’t Jamaica,'” she said. “That’s when I was like … 21 or 22. I was like, Oh my God, I just out-smoked Woody Harrelson. It was such a big moment.”
The Canadian crooner has penned a huge array of catchy hits, such as Stitches and Treat You Better. And in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Shawn has credited his frequent use of marijuana for helping him write such tunes.
“I love weed,” he smiled. “I wouldn’t tweet that – not yet, at least – but it’s really good for me. When I’m home, I’ll smoke and then play guitar for seven hours.”
Shawn indulged in his love of the drug during his 20th birthday trip to Amsterdam with his friends. He also saw magic mushrooms for sale, but opted against trying one.
However, he said he “wants to” try them “so badly”, adding: “I think it would help me a lot.”
