Some celebrities toked up on live TV to make a political statement. Others do it for fun. Either way, pfamous people using cannabis while broadcasting live should help remove the stigma surrounding marijuana.
8. Bill Maher and Killer Mike
Earlier this year, Bill Maher lit a joint and smoked it with rapper Killer Mike, who is a long-time marijuana advocate.
The sesh was aired on an episode of HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.”
Before sparking up, Bill said, “I use medical marijuana because my third eye has glaucoma.” He added: “This is private property, and I do have a card.”
In a first for American talk shows, Bill Maher and Killer Mike advocated for legal marijuana on national television and then lit up. He never got fined.
7. Nate Diaz
UFC fighter Nate Diaz decided to puff on a vape pen during a post-fight press conference.
The move immediately established him as a high-profile athlete who regularly uses cannabis.
And we don’t blame him — he was pretty banged up. His eyes were nearly swollen shut and he had a gash on his nose.
He wasn’t shy about what he was doing, either. He could have lied and pretended it was an e-cigarette but he told reporters “It’s CBD.”
Diaz was puffing on a form of concentrated CBD that doesn’t get you high, but that does give users a lot of health benefits.
The MMA fighter used the press conference as an opportunity to educate people about cannabinoids like CBD.
“It helps with the healing process and inflammation and stuff like that,” he explained.
“So you wanna get these for before, after the fight, training. It’ll make your life a better place,” he said.
