OK, OK, by now maybe it’s unfair to keep reminding everyone that Barack Obama did, at one point, smoke weed, and that he looked really good while doing it. Instead, let’s look at 10 other people you might not expect to smoke weed:
1. Bill Gates
In a 1994 biography, Gates said his drug of choice was marijuana.
2. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas
Justice Thomas smoked marijuana in college (who didn’t?)
3. Martha Stewart
Stewart famously told Andy Cohen on Bravo,
“of course she knows how to roll a joint,”because, of course! Right?
4. Sarah Palin
Palin made a jab at former President Bill Clinton, stating “I can’t say I never inhaled.”
5. Morgan Freeman.
Hey if it’s good enough for the voice of God…
6. Ted Turner.

7. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Bloomberg once said he “enjoyed it,” though later he expressed some regret at that optimism.
8. Jennifer Aniston
Aniston has been open about her enjoyment and support of cannabis use, and we can’t help but wonder if it’s her secret to seemingly never aging?
9. Cameron Diaz
Another woman who doesn’t age! Our favorite detail about Diaz, however, is that she claims to have purchased weed from Snoop Dogg in high school.
10. Matthew McConaughey
OK this one isn’t quite as surprising as, say, Sarah Palin or Bill Gates, but any time we can bring up naked bongo playing, we will.
