Women have been underrepresented in the cannabis industry for far too long, but that’s finally beginning to change.
There are an increasing number of women both working in cannabis and opening up about their consumption, and along with that has come a wider variety of products that appeal to consumers beyond the stereotypical “weed bro.”
In honor of this welcome industry-wide shift, we’ve rounded up six female celebrities who’ve gone public about their cannabis consumption during the height of stigma. Whether this was by accident or on purpose, these women have trail-blazed a path for others to be open and honest about their consumption, and that is worthy of some recognition and gratitude.
One of the reigning queens of the early 2000s, Jessica Alba has admitted to smoking weed in her younger days. In fact, there’s a famous photo from a trip she took to Amsterdam back in the day, where she is pictured in her happy place: smiling right next to a big bong.
Known for her roles in E.T., Charlie’s Angels, Never Been Kissed, and many more, Drew Barrymore is widely considered one of America’s sweethearts – and she was also caught passing a joint to a friend on a Hawaiian beach in 2007. At the time, this was the ultimate scandal, but today, we are grateful for her trailblazing contribution to destigmatization.
That friend was none other than fellow Angel – and arguably a fellow American sweetheart – Cameron Diaz.
From the iconic reality TV show The Simple Life to her recent documentary about her difficult upbringing This is Paris, Paris Hilton has had a massively influential effect on pop culture and American society.
The reality TV queen has also been unabashed about her cannabis consumption in the early 2000s, regularly allowing herself to be photographed toking and fearlessly claiming to “smoke weed everyday.”
Former Disney star Miley Cyrus has often been placed under society’s microscope, especially since she broke away from Hannah Montana and started forging her own, more adult-friendly path.
The controversial star has been caught smoking weed a number of times, and is now open about her consumption, even claiming to have inspired her mother Tish to begin smoking again after a years-long hiatus.
Jennifer Lawrence has quickly gained recognition as one of the most talented and versatile American actresses of her generation, and her dedication to every role she takes on is inspiring.
The Oscar-winning actress admitted to getting high on the set of Netflix’s Don’t Look Up to get into her pot-smoking character’s mind…but that isn’t the first time the actress was captured smoking a “suspicious”-looking cigarette before.
We see you, J-Law, and we thank you for your service.
