Does Jimmy Fallon smoke weed? The current host of “The Tonight Show” seems goofy enough to seemingly smoke before every episode of his late night talk show. And have you ever seen how much that guy laughs? Ganja is the only reasonable explanation. But since good old’ Jimmy has never really seemed to open up about his cannabis use, we decided to investigate. So without further ado, let’s see if Jimmy Fallon does in fact, smoke the green stuff.
Who is Jimmy Fallon?
Jimmy Fallon is the true embodiment of the American dream. Born in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, Fallon originally majored in computer science and communications at The College of Saint Rose. With only one semester left until graduation, Fallon decided to drop out of college and pursue his dream of being a comedian.
He moved to L.A. and decided to pursue comedy full time. He performed stand-up comedy at The Improv in L.A. and started taking improvisational classes at the Groundlings.
It was always Fallon’s dream to join the cast of Saturday Night Live but was originally rejected on his first audition. However, Fallon was able to impress SNL creator Lorne Michaels enough on his second go-around to secure a spot on the show. Fallon was on the show from 1998-2004 and was infamous for breaking character with his signature fit of laughs.
In 2004, Fallon also tried his hand on the big screen. However, the results were far from ideal. Fallon starred in the 2004 movie “Taxi,” and then the 2005 movie “Fever Pitch.” They both received mixed reviews.
In 2009, Fallon was given the nod to take over for Conan O’Brien’s “Late Night.” Initially met with lukewarm reviews, Jimmy Fallon soon found his groove, and became one of the most likable late night talk show hosts on television.
In 2014, Fallon was offered the prestigious seat as the permanent host of “The Tonight Show,” replacing Jay Leno. He’s currently still in that position today.
Puff or Pass?
So back to the question at hand: Does Jimmy Fallon smoke weed? Fallon has made a ton of pot jokes on his time as the “Tonight Show” host and has even taken a shotgun from Willie Nelson himself. The two seem like an ideal fit, but there’s not much evidence to suggest Fallon is a big time stoner.
In fact, Fallon has said he doesn’t really smoke, although he has tried it:
I’ve tried it, but I’m not a pot guy. I just can’t get into it. Smoking cigarettes, I can’t do that either. It just doesn’t fit with me.
It’s tough to imagine Fallon not smoking because he seemingly is obsessed with some of his guest’s weed habits. He’s plagued guys like Snoop Dogg, Seth MacFarlane, and Seth Rogen with tons of weed questions in past episodes of his show. Perhaps he’s just into the mystic nature of the plant. Who knows?
Final Hit: Does Jimmy Fallon Smoke Weed?
So does Jimmy Fallon smoke weed? Unfortunately, it looks like it’s a no-go. We’re gonna have to trust Jimmy on this one, because hey, he seems like a genuine guy. But at least he definitely has smoked before. And who knows, he might still do it on the low. Maybe he thinks it’s a bad look for the host of “The Tonight Show?” We certainly don’t but to each his own.
