Do These Celebs Prefer 420, 4:20, or 4/20?

It’s April 20 (aka “420,” “4:20,” or “4/20”), and marijuana lovers everywhere are celebrating—including some of PETA’s celebrity friends who have been known to enjoy the ganja (at least at some point).

Willie Nelson is quite possibly the grandfather of the movement to legalize marijuana, and his last wishes sound similar to those of PETA President Ingrid Newkirk:

Waka Flocka Flame charmed everyone who watched him prepare vegan blueberry muffins—and apparently, he is hiring …

Richard Linklater—the man behind two all-time classic stoner movies, Slacker and Dazed and Confused—admits that he was a “weekend toker” in high school.

Miley Cyrus makes no effort to hide her 4:20 celebration:

Joan Jett is legendary for loving rock and roll, and she also supports the use of marijuana:

Alan Cumming has guest blogged for PETA and took to his own blog to write about his involvement in a remake of the 1936 propaganda film Reefer Madness.

Redman and Method Man, who are both vegetarian, can’t be overlooked—and neither than can their stoner film, How High.

Woody Harrelson has long fought for the legalization of all things hemp. He’s even in the process of opening a marijuana dispensary in his beloved Hawaii.


GZA and fellow Wu-Tang Clan member RZA created the song (and subsequently famous phrase) “Pass the Bone” out of their affection for bud.

And as everyone knows, Bill Maher is all in, making his point by smoking a joint on the air.

If you’ll be celebrating the holiday, be sure to check out PETA’s handy list of vegan snacks that’ll help satisfy your munchies.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
