Weed sayings by well-known personalities

Would it surprise you if celebrities also knew what Crystal feminized seeds are? It’s common knowledge that many showbiz performers advocate cannabis use and are vocal about it, as these famous marijuana quotes show. 

Weed sayings by well-known personalities

Read on to find out what actors, comedians, musicians, authors, and politicians have said about weed. Some of the sayings are as inspiring and motivating as self-help books.


As marijuana legalization continues to expand in many states in the United States, here’s what politicians say about the herb. 

“When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn’t like it and didn’t inhale and never tried it again.” – Bill Clinton.

“If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint… And not do anybody else any harm… Then perhaps there are other things that our cops should be looking at.” – Sarah Palin.


Some of the best weed quotes come from our favorite comedians.

“I used to smoke marijuana. But I’ll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening—or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, mid-evening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-mid-afternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning…But never at dusk.” – Steve Martin.

“40 million Americans smoked marijuana; the only ones who didn’t like it were Judge Ginsberg, Clarence Thomas, and Bill Clinton.” – Jay Leno.

“I don’t do drugs, though. Just weed.” – Dave Chappelle.

“Sometimes you just gotta say ‘fuck it’ and smoke a big ass joint.” – Tommy Chong.

“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.


Next are famous weed quotes from Hollywood actors

“I’ve never heard of anybody smoking a joint and going on a rampage. It makes you lie around on the floor and look at the ceiling. What’s wrong with that?“ – Billy Bob Thornton.

“Even if one doesn’t smoke pot, one has to see the benefits of decriminalizing it!” – Danny Devito.

“I find it quite ironic that the most dangerous thing about weed is getting caught with it.” – Bill Murray.

“That is not a drug, it’s a leaf.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“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, f**ked-up thing to do. And it’s not. I hope they legalize it, and when they do, I’ll be the first f**king person in line to buy my pack of joints.” – Megan Fox.

Authors, journalists

Many writers and journalists have also contributed famous marijuana quotes. Among them are:

“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.

“Alcohol and marijuana, if used in moderation, plus loud, usually low-class music, make stress and boredom infinitely more bearable.” – Kurt Vonnegut.

“I think that marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry. It would be wonderful for the state of Maine. There’s some pretty good homegrown dope. I’m sure it would be even better if you could grow it with fertilizers and have greenhouses.” – Stephen King. 

Music artists

No list of the best stoner quotes would be complete without featuring the likes of Snoop Dogg, renowned for using weed. Here are three of his most memorable:

“So what if I’m smokin’ weed onstage and doing what I gotta do? It’s not me shooting nobody, stabbing nobody, killing nobody. It’s a peaceful gesture, and they have to respect that and appreciate that.”

“The more medicated, the more dedicated.”

“It makes me feel the way I want to feel.”

Here are some stoner sayings and quotes from music legends.

“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.

“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.” – Bob Marley.

These famous quotes about weed are by Grammy Award winners:

“Marijuana was the main thing that promoted non-violence amongst the youth because as soon as they have it, first of all, you have to laugh at your first experiences. There’s nothing else you do but laugh, and then, when you’ve got over that and you realize that people aren’t laughing at you, but with you, it’s a community thing, and nothing would ever stop it, nothing on earth is going to stop it, and the only thing to do is to find out how to use it for good, or for best.” – John Lennon.

“It really puzzles me to see marijuana connected with narcotics… dope and all that crap. It’s a thousand times better than whiskey—it’s an assistant—a friend.” – Louis Armstrong.

Not all famous stoner thoughts and quotes refer to recreational weed use. Some celebrities use it for medicinal purposes.

“Instead of taking five or six of the prescriptions, I decided to go the natural route and smoke marijuana.” – Melissa Etheridge.
