The world is changing. More and more cannabis use is accepted in today’s society. And while people have been using cannabis for years (centuries, really), more and more it’s being more acceptable to toke up. And while there are many advocates on the front lines in the world working to push the cannabis envelope, there are also mainstream folks — actors, musicians, and athletes — helping to normalize cannabis in American and global society. As things continue to change, it’s important to take note of who in the celebrity world is helping the cannabis cause and what their motivations are. Let’s investigate.
