Albert Einstein, Physics Superstar

"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this."

Carl Sagan, Science Great

The illegality of Cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."

Willie Nelson, Country Superstar

"I think people need to be educated to the fact that Marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong.?”

“It really puzzles me to see Marijuana connected with narcotics dope and all of that stuff. It is a thousand times better than whiskey. It is an assistant and a friend.”

 William F. Buckley Jr., Thinker, Writer

"Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, Marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than Marijuana ever could."

“The amount of money and of legal energy being given to prosecute hundreds of thousands of Americans who are caught with a few ounces of Marijuana in their jeans simply makes no sense - the kindest way to put it. A sterner way to put it is that it is an outrage, an imposition on basic civil liberties and on the reasonable expenditure of social energy.”

Norman Mailer, All-time Great Writer, Thinker

"One's condition on Marijuana is always existential. One can feel the importance of each moment and how it is changing one. One feels one's being, one becomes aware of the enormous apparatus of nothingness -- the hum of a hi-fi set, the emptiness of a pointless interruption, one becomes aware of the war between each of us, how the nothingness in each of us seeks to attack the being of others, how our being in turn is attacked by the nothingness in others."

Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize Winner

"When a private enterprise fails, it is closed down; when a government enterprise fails, it is expanded. Isn’t that exactly what’s been happening with drugs?"

Steve Martin, America's First White Black Man

"I used to smoke Marijuana. But I'll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, mid-evening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early midafternoon, or perhaps the late-midafternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning...But never at dusk."

Celebrities and Drugs

CASE IN POINT - How Great Celebrities Fell Down the Slippery Slope

Alexander Dumas, Literary Genius

"When you return to this mundane sphere from your visionary world, you would seem to leave a Neapolitan spring for a Lapland winter - to quit paradise for earth - heaven for hell! Taste the hashish, guest of mine - taste the hashish!"

Henry Ford, Mega Billionaire and Marijuana Man

Terence McKenna, Cosmonaut of Sorts

"If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."

Jimmy Carter, U.S. President

"Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed.

Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marihuana."

John Adams, U.S. President

"We shall, by and by, want a world of hemp more for our own consumption."

Russell Brand, Comedy

Richard M. Nixon, Bad Boy President

“Federal and state laws (should) be changed to no longer make it a crime to possess Marijuana for private use.”

Richard Neville, Musician

“Is Marijuana addictive? Yes, in the sense that most of the really pleasant things in life are worth endlessly repeating.”

Sebastian Marincolo, Medical Marijuana Ph.D.



“Marijuana enhances our mind in a way that enables us to take a different perspective from 'high up', to see and evaluate our own lives and the lives of others in a privileged way. Maybe this euphoric and elevating feeling of the ability to step outside the box and to look at life’s patterns from this high perspective is the inspiration behind the slang term 'high' itself.”

“There has never been a 'war on drugs'! In our history we can only see an ongoing conflict amongst various drug users – and producers. In ancient Mexico the use of alcohol was punishable by death, while the ritualistic use of mescaline was highly worshipped. In 17th century Russia, tobacco smokers were threatened with mutilation or decapitation, alcohol was legal. In Prussia, coffee drinking was prohibited to the lower classes, the use of tobacco and alcohol was legal.”

“The legalization of Marijuana is not a dangerous experiment – the prohibition is the experiment, and it has failed dramatically, with millions of victims all around the world.”

“The movie Koyaanisqatsi shows non-commented time-lapse footage and focuses our attention on the very rhythm of our civilized modern life and nature. A Marijuana high can do something for a user similar to what this time-lapse footage does. The enhancement of episodic memory and the acceleration of associative streams of memories can alter and enhance our recognition of patterns in our lives in various ways. If we are presented with quick associative chains of past experiences, we can see a pattern in a body of information that is usually not at once presented to our 'inner eye' as such.”

Holy Bible, King James Version

“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”

Note: The King James translation was approved by Royal censors, who obviously had nothing against Cannabis.

Alex E. Jones, Conspiracy Theorist Who's Usually Right

“The drug war is a total scam, prescription drugs kill 300K a year, while Marijuana kills no one, but they spend billions/year 'fighting' it, because potheads make for good little slaves to put into private prisons, owned by the banks who launder the drug money, and it's ALL DOCUMENTED.”

Joe Rogan, Thinker, Martial Artist and Comedian

“Prison is for rapists, thieves, and murderers. If you lock someone up for smoking a plant that makes them happy, then you're the fucking criminal.”

Martha Stewart, Billionaire, Criminal and Homemaker

"Of course I know how to roll a joint.”

 Matt Damon, Hollywood Superstar

“The first time I smoked was at home with my mother and stepfather; they were like, ‘If you are going to do this, we’d rather you did this with us.’”

Bob Saget, Comedy King

“Marijuana is not a drug!!! I used to suck dick for coke! You ever suck DICK for Marijuana?”

Nick Offerman, Funnyman

“Marijuana is quite possibly the finest of intoxicants. It has been scientifically proven, for decades, to be much less harmful to the body than alcohol when used on a regular basis


Al Gore, Global Warming Door to Door Salesman

Rich and Famous Women - Loving Quotes about Marijuana

Randy Moss, Football Superstar

I have had fun throughout my years and, you know, predominantly in the offseason.”

Stephen King, All Time Great Novelist

“Hashish will be, indeed, for the impressions and familiar thoughts of the man, a mirror which magnifies, yet no more than a mirror.”

Allen Ginsberg, The American Poet

“Marijuana is a useful catalyst for specific optical and aural aesthetic perceptions. I apprehended the structure of certain pieces of jazz and classical music in a new manner under the influence of Marijuana, and these apprehensions have remained valid in years of normal consciousness.”

Kurt Vonnegut, One of America's Greatest Novelists

“Alcohol and Marijuana, if used in moderation, plus loud, usually low-class music, make stress and boredom infinitely more bearable.

Hugh Hefner, Founder of Playboy Magazine
