Now that using Marijuana has been legalized in some states, we might get to see more and more stars being open to their smoking behavior.

Typically, our minds don’t jump to politicians when we ponder on celebrities that smoke Marijuana. We all know him as the 44th President of the United States, but he is not a stranger to Marijuana. In a book written by Maraniss David, titled “Barack Obama – The Story”, he (Maraniss) narrates how Obama as a member of a basketball crew enjoyed smoking “J’s” (Joints) and always “Bogart that joint”, which is a slang used either when one refuses to share the joint, or when one takes in more than he’s meant to.
The 32-year-old model, actress, and mother of three children under the age of five once said in an interview with British GQ, “I can’t tell you how much bullshit I’ve been through because I will openly say I smoke weed.” Although it has been a decade since she said that, surely, a lot of people would still love to have a joint with her. She also said as quoted, “I hope they legalize it, and when they do, I’ll be the first person in line to buy my pack of joints.”
We can’t mention celebrities that smoke weed and forget to mention this man. Doug Benson is a TV actor, a comedian and also a marijuana activist.
