Breakin’: Britney Disses Weed. Other Celebs Weigh In On The Chronic.

This week, Britney Spears stopped performing in the middle of her Vancouver show because the venue was allegedly full of cigarette and marijuana smoke. Spears (a smoker) claimed the funky air was making her and her crew gag. She returned to the stage 45 minutes later, and finished the concert with a constructive, “Thanks Vancouver. You were wonderful. Drive safe. Don’t smoke weed!” [Hollywood Rag] Below, more celebs sound off on pot:

  • Seth Rogen chats with Fox News at the premiere of “Observe and Report”:

    “I was more of a smoking weed behind the 7-Eleven guy. So yeah, didn’t go to the mall much.” [Fox News]

  • Ronald Reagan on weed:

    “I now have absolute proof that smoking even one marijuana cigarette is equal in brain damage to being on Bikini Island during an H-bomb blast.” [Think Exist]

  • Method Man on whether companies ask him to tone down his smoker profile:

    “Not really…Only in Hollywood, sometimes, ’cause they don’t want to think that they’re investing their money in a pothead, which they are. I don’t mind being an advocate for weed. It’s not as bad as tobacco, alcohol or firearms, for that matter…I think the cure for cancer’s probably in cannabis.” [High Times]

  • President Clinton on inhaling:

    “When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two. I didn’t like it, and I didn’t inhale, and I never tried again.” [Think Exist]

  • President Obama on the pot:

    “When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.” [Think Exist]

  • Steve Martin muses about the green stuff:

    “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 mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-mid-afternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning…But never at dusk.” [Eazy Smoke]

  • Comedian Bill Hicks on the misconceptions of MJ:

    “They lie about marijuana. Tell you pot-smoking makes you unmotivated. Lie! When you’re high, you can do everything you normally do, just as well. You just realize that it’s not worth the f***ing effort.” [Think Exist]

  • Matt Lauer educates on the herb:

    ““Researchers have discovered that chocolate produces some of the same reactions in the brain as marijuana. The researchers also discovered other similarities between the two but can’t remember what they are.” [High Times]
