|Rihanna has never sought to hide the fact that she’s an avid pot smoker
Cannabis has long had a resounding influence in the celebrity culture. Whether it be through its influence in music or merely as the recreational herb of choice for a variety of celebrities. That said, whether or not it’s just their personal choice of self-medication or something they actively fight for the rights of they are clearly having an influence on society through their profile and status and influence on their fans.
Here we look at some modern celebrities and some from the past that have had an influence on people’s views of pot for better or worse…
Rihanna and the ‘Virtues’ of Pot
One from the modern here, Rihanna has never sought to hide the fact that she is a keen pot smoker. On several occasions she has been photographed partaking in a joint and on a couple of occasions being forcibly removed from hotels for smoking pot in her room.
However, while people will say that she is negatively influencing the young generation with her open drug use, it hardly extends beyond the occasional pot t shirt or tweet about “Kush” that gets blown up in the media.
What she has done recently is promote a book she is reading (via Twitter) called Sex Pot: The Marijuana Lover’s Guide To Gettin’ It On,
a book all about mastery of marijuana stimulated sex. Such viewpoints on the use of marijuana and sex have been swept under the prudish rug in the past but it seems now that more open views of marijuana and female sexuality walk hand in hand.
A sex-mad Rihanna who tokes!? There is a god.
