Famous People You Probably Didn't Know Were Stoners

The shifting cultural landscape around cannabis use is nothing short of fascinating.

For decades, the stigmas surrounding marijuana have made it a taboo topic, leading many to shroud their consumption in secrecy. Historically, cannabis use was associated with counter-culture movements, perceived laziness, or a lack of ambition. This was especially true in the world of celebrities, where public image is paramount. However, as laws and attitudes have evolved, so too has the openness with which people discuss their relationship with the plant. A wave of acceptance has washed over society, leading to a new era where discussions around cannabis aren't just about its recreational use but also its therapeutic potential. This refreshing change is evident even among the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

Several celebrities have occasionally partaken in cannabis consumption, some for recreation, some for health. Let's dive into a list of renowned individuals who have enjoyed cannabis but haven't made it a primary focus of their public persona.

Morgan Freeman:

The iconic actor, with a voice that could even make a phone book sound interesting, has expressed his support for cannabis legalization. He uses it for pain relief after a serious car accident in 2008.
