Cannabis activism is real. We have websites that inform people about what marijuana is and the benefits of hemp. We have articles and stories of moms having their sons and daughters treated with medical cannabis. These moms want medical cannabis to be legal in the nation so that others can also benefit from the substance without fear of having to face the law. And then we have personalities, famous even, who are blatant or seriously honest in their use or opinion about the weed, the marijuana and other terminologies pertaining to the same or variety of the herb.

As we amplify our voice to make cannabis more legal nationwide, we also need to halt for a bit and take some inspirations from those who have voiced their opinion or two on what they perceive about the weed and what they want something to be achieved, considering marijuana’s illicit status in many jurisdictions.

Many personalities integrated in this list are already deceased but we want to resurrect a part of them through their famous weed quotes.

We start with the famous Rastafarian, who incorporated his music with a good leaf.

1.Bob Marley, the famous reggae musician of all time

He is, perhaps, the most famous musician who voiced his love for cannabis during the time when the substance was outlawed in most countries and jurisdictions. Though deceased, he is immortalized through his song and memes that always depict his association with the herb.
