Best Celebrity Quotes about Ganja, Weed, Marijuana, and Cannabis from CannabisNet on Vimeo.


Celebrities, singers, rockstars, actors, even politicians and leaders from different fields have all been pivotal to cannabis reform. They use their popularity to influence and educate others about the benefits of the great ganja.



Famous people who consume cannabis, or have admitted that they smoked pot in the past, do play an important role in national dialogue, both in and out of the political arena.



To give you a dose of inspiration this week, we’ve summed up what celebrities have to say about marijuana legalization:

“When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.”― Barack Obama



willie nelson on marijuana

“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong? - Willie Nelson



snoop on cannabis

"It makes me feel the way I need to feel."―Snoop Dogg


“I do smoke, but I don't go through all this trouble just because I want to make my drug of choice legal. It's about personal freedom. We should have the right in this country to do what we want, if we don't hurt anybody. Seventy-two million people in this country have smoked pot. Eighteen to 20 million in the last year. These people should not be treated as criminals”. - Woody Harrelson



“It’s absurd that more states haven’t legalized it. It’s an important source of income… You also see the reports on kids who have seizures that are prevented by medical marijuana. You see the relief it gives to vets. It’s also a lovely way to socialize and be with people - and to be with yourself and de-stress.” Susan Sarandon



It’s just the stupidest law possible… You’re just making criminals out of people who aren’t engaged in criminal activity. And we’re spending zillions of dollars trying to fight a war we can’t win! We could make zillions, just legalize it and tax it like we do liquor. It’s stupid. – Morgan Freeman



“It’s not just the over $8 billion that we would be saving in law enforcement; it’s also the over $8 billion that we would be making by taxing marijuana… We are filling our jails with nonviolent drug offenders — predominantly young, predominantly African American… It’s a great beyond left and right issue. It has support across the political spectrum and also the support of the majority of the American people.” – Arianna Huffington



“Who most benefits from keeping marijuana illegal? The greatest beneficiaries are the major criminal organizations in Mexico and elsewhere that earn billions of dollars annually from this illicit trade–and who would rapidly lose their competitive advantage if marijuana were a legal commodity. Some claim that they would only move into other illicit enterprises, but they are more likely to be weakened by being deprived of the easy profits they can earn with marijuana.”George Soros



“I have always loved marijuana. It has been a source of joy and comfort to me for many years. And I still think of it as a basic staple of life, along with beer and ice and grapefruits -and millions of Americans agree with me.”―Hunter S. Thompson



“Marijuana doesn’t have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works… It is irresponsible not to provide the best care we can as a medical community, care that could involve marijuana. We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States, and I apologize for my own role in that.” – Dr. Sanjay Gupta



“The main point in our report was to recommend decriminalization…because of the way laws are applied, which have not worked. We have applied them for decades and it’s got the prisons filled with lots of young people who sometimes come out destroyed for having half an ounce… We should approach it through education [and] health issues rather than a brutal reaction… There is need for change in policy, but it has to start with debate and discussion… I think the whole approach has to be reviewed.”Kofi Annan



Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?”―Bill Hicks



"Of course I know how to roll a joint."―Martha Stewart
