5 Surprising Famous Marijuana Moving People
Long gone are the days of Reefer Madness. Children of the '90s will remember TV commercials paid for by some sort of coalition of panicked mothers, suggesting that a single puff of the devil's lettuce was a metaphorical express train to living beneath the tracks of a literal express train.
Oh, yeah, dogs hate it when you get high and pet them for three hours.
These days, there are only five states left in the US where marijuana is still full-on, old-school, handcuffs-and-Miranda-rights illegal: Wyoming, Kansas, South Carolina, Idaho, and Tennessee. Which is twice as unfortunate because at least four of those are states I would want to be extremely high in. I'm not watching potatoes grow dead sober. Everywhere else in the US, the icky is either decriminalized, cleared for medicinal (ow, my insomnia!) use, or full-on legal.
With this wave of legalization, weed has become a popular and profitable business. Now, instead of buying an eighth of something called Scary Busey from a guy with a katana collection, you're buying 3.5 grams of an indica-dominant hybrid from some bougie cannabis grower, called something like "Puffalo Farms," that may be part-owned by the real Gary Busey.
Puffalo Farms might simply be an enjoyable fake name, but celebrity cannabis brands are a burgeoning business, growing at almost the same rate as overpriced celebrity liquor. (If you ever meet a guy at a bar actually ordering Ryan Reynolds' gin, congratulations on meeting Ryan Reynolds). For some celebrities, it's finally a chance to get in on a business that's been using their likeness on baggie stickers for decades. Snoop Dogg's face is to weed labels what fat little babies are to renaissance paintings.
Pop culture's iconically blunted figures aren't the only ones to see green, however. More and more celebrities and popular figures are getting into the jazz cabbage game, including some that you'd be surprised to see in the dispensary, much less making a product drop-off ...
Billy Ray Cyrus - Don't Break His
The once and future Mullet King may not have embraced the weed community as whole-heartedly as his pigtailed contemporary Willie Nelson, but that's not to say he never indulged. What seems to have been a life-long love for Lucifer's leaf isn't something to keep off the tabloid pages anymore. The last of any belief that Billy Ray didn't appreciate a hefty J was silenced with his official music video for the song "Angel In My Pocket."
I hope to god his weed comes with little cowboy hats.
Now, Billy Ray has transitioned from puff-taker to pot-tender with a new line of "Midnight Special" custom Billy Ray Cyrus blend joints from Lowell Smokes, which, as I understand it from my LA friends, is basically the White Claw of weed.
