Our 10 favorite celebrity potheads

Categories: Lists
To go with our weedtastic feature story this week, we've compiled a list of 10 celebrities who've helped raise marijuana awareness and show the ridiculousness of prohibition. Pass the joint and let's kick this mother off:

Snoop Dogg
Snoop is hands down the rap game's most infamous toker, and as such we dare you to try and find a track that doesn't throw in a few couplets or two in homage of his clear first love. But Snoop is not one of those irritating potheads who stumble around muttering about Cheetos -- the sticky-icky, as he calls it, actually seems to bolster his personality and add to the cool calm that is Mr. Doggy Dogg.

Jeff Bridges
Bridges, who is getting Oscar buzz for his current role in Crazy Heart, has been a longtime advocate for legalized marijuana. Ironically, though, for his role as the Dude in The Big Lebowski, which made him an icon of potheads everywhere, Bridges has said that he gave up weed while shooting the film, because "I wanted to have a clear head."

Back in the '70s, baseball wasn't concerned about steroids -- if there was any substance problem in the bigs, it was methamphetamines, or "greenies". But notorious goofball pitcher Bill Lee liked a different shade of green, once admitting that he not only smoked, but that he liked to sprinkle it on his buckwheat pancakes. It couldn't've hurt; in his best season -- 1973 -- he was 17-11 with a 2.75 ERA for the Red Sox and made the All-Star team. (Ironically enough, the next year he'd lead the league in... wait for it... hits allowed.)
