From the beginning of his rap career with Dr. Dre and with the release of his solo album in 1993 Snoop Dogg has been very open about his use of cannabis and the cannabis lifestyle in general. He may be one of the most recognized celebrities that smoke weed. He does hold a medical marijuana card in California and as a migraine sufferer, has found real relief by using cannabis to treat his migraine pain. Snoop Dogg has had a kind of a love hate relationship with cannabis, announcing way back in 2002 that he was going to stop all cannabis use. That announcement was short lived, he was back to being a cannabis connoisseur pretty quickly. It is rumored, only a rumor, that by 2013 Snoop Dogg was smoking upwards of 80 blunts a day, Hopefully he is now mixing in some edibles with the help of his friend Martha Stewart, as smoking that much cannabis would be tough on the lungs every day. Blunts, bongs, pipes or edibles, Snoop Dogg is a very cool and talented cannabis connoisseur.
The literal OG of cannabis connoisseurs, Willie Nelson, a country western singer and actor, has been open about his love and use of cannabis for decades. Recently former President Jimmy Carter admitted that Willie Nelson and his son got high on the roof of the White House, back when he was President. Willie Nelson has been attempting to educate his fans and politicians about the benefits of cannabis for years and is heavily involved with efforts to legalize cannabis for both medical and recreational use at the federal level. He is currently the co-chair of the advisory board for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). After years of smoking both cigarettes and cannabis, Willie Nelson had to make the decision to quit one for health reasons. The decision was an easy one to make for him, he quit cigarettes and switched to vaping cannabis to keep his lung problems from getting worse. As Willie Nelson has been arrested multiple times in several states for possession of marijuana, he is a huge supporter of recent states’ decisions to pursue not only decriminalization but also record expungement for cannabis possession. Willie Nelson has been right about the benefits of cannabis all along!

It is fitting that Matthew McConaughey got his big break in a film called Dazed and Confused in 1993. His star has been on the rise ever since and in addition to earning himself an Oscar, he has earned himself the reputation for being a cannabis connoisseur. Well known for taking on more challenging acting roles in recent years, Matthew McConaughey is also involved with several charities. All cannabis connoisseurs have good stoner stories, and although it is likely Matthew McConaughey has quite a few, one of the best ones goes all the way back to when he was king of the romantic comedies, in 1999. Apparently in addition to being a great actor, he is also a drum fan and was once arrested for playing the bongos naked after getting super baked. It seems a neighbor did not like the noise and called in a complaint and Matthew McConaughey was taken into custody for disturbing the peace. No word on if he also faced a possession charge but what kind of neighbor has a problem with naked Matthew McConaughey? In 1999? Insanity! Hopefully now he is enjoying more quiet cannabis sessions or at least has nicer neighbors.
