Stoner Quote #1. “When you smoke herb, it reveals you to yourself.” – Bob Marley

The legendary reggae superstar, Bob Marley was much more than a humble, wise and infinitely talented artist. He brought hope to the downtrodden, the weak and the oppressed. Driven by his devotion and passion for Rastafarianism he inspired the globe to adopt the philosophy of One Love. He was also a major voice of legalization.

Stoner Quote #2.”[it] makes you forget all the bad things that happen to a Negro. It makes you feel wanted, and when you’re with another tea smoker, it makes you feel a special kinship.” – Louis Armstrong

One of the original jazz musicians, Louis Armstrong—the gravely voiced trumpet player who penned the famous songs “What a Wonderful World, “Hello Dolly and “Muggles” (another name for marijuana) smoked pot as a source of creative inspiration. He was eventually busted for smoking marijuana and spent nine days in the Los Angeles City Jail. As a result, he famously wrote a letter to then President Eisenhower calling for marijuana to be legalized. l

Stoner Quote #3.“The biggest killer on the planet is stress and I still think the best medicine is and always has been cannabis.” – Willie Nelson

The country legend and tireless marijuana, Willie Nelson, advocate told Rolling Stone magazine that even he was surprised when marijuana was legalized in Colorado and Washington state, noting, “I didn’t think it would happen in my lifetime, but here it is. The future looks good.” Nelson, a member of NORML’s Advisory Board goes on to say, “There’s a lot of money in selling marijuana. If you can do it legally, that’s good. Why should all the criminals make the money?  if it’s going to be legal, let’s tax it and regulate it, like we do with everything else, and make some money off this. I think that’s one reason why people are taking this a little more seriously.”

Stoner Quote #4. “If the words ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.” – Terence McKenna

While it’s disputed that the actual Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper, what isn’t in question is that Terence McKenna was a pioneer in the world of psychonautics. The famous writer, lecturer, ethnobotanist, philosopher, and psilocybin guru has also been famously quoted saying, “I find that when I’m writing books that I can only write for about three hours, and then either the day is finished for work, or I smoke hashish and twenty minutes later I’m ready to go two hours more at it—and I can do that twice in a day. If I judiciously control my intake of cannabis, it like gives me a second wind and a third wind to go forward with creative activity.

funny stoner quotes

Stoner Quote #5. “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.” – Steve Martin

This funny stoner quote is actually from an old Saturday Night Live episode back during season four featuring Steve Martin and Bill Murray. Although Martin wasn’t a SNL cast member, he was an honest stoner.

obama stoner quote

Stoner Quote #6. “When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.” – Barack Obama

President Barack Obama admitted to smoking pot back in ’06 with this famous stoner quote mocking President Bill Clinton who said he tried marijuana but, “didn’t inhale.” Apparently quite the opposite is true about Obama who back in high school and college was a major stoner. According to the David Maraniss book, “Barack Obama: The Story,” Obama’s old school chums called themselves the “Choom Gang” and cruised around in an ol’ split window VW bus they called the “Choomwagon.” The book talks about how the group liked to get stoned at a spot they dubbed the “Pumping Stations” on Oahu and how “they parked single file on the grassy edge, turned up their stereos playing Aerosmith, Blue Öyster Cult, and Stevie Wonder, lit up some ‘sweet-sticky Hawaiian buds,’ and washed it down with ‘green bottled beer,’” Maraniss reported.

carl sagan marijuana quote

Stoner Quote #7. “The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship, so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.” – Carl Sagan

“I am convinced that there are genuine and valid levels of perception available with cannabis (and probably with other drugs) which are, through the defects of our society and our educational system, unavailable to us without such drugs,” Carl Sagan wrote in 1971, under the name Mr. X. “Is there something intrinsically immoral about feeling good by taking a molecule? Do we ordinarily feel good because our bodies have generated molecules?” Sagan also wrote. He also questioned the “very bad science behind prohibition,” by writing, “How much money is spent every year on the planet on illegal drugs?” to drug policy reformers.

henry ford stoner quote

Stoner Quote #8. “Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?” – Henry Ford

Believe it or not Henry Ford, the dude behind the famous line of cars, actually made a car entirely out of hemp. Ford had his workers build a car out of hemp-based products and arranged for a promotional photo of himself, in an overcoat and hat, bashing the rear fender with a sledgehammer to show how strong the material was. Hemp was an alternative for  farmers seeking an alternative to taking land out of production and destroying “surplus” commodities. Ford was a proponent of growing crops not for food but for transformation into various industrial products—plastics, coatings, thread, etc.

peter tosh marijuana quote

Stoner Quote #9. “I don’t smoke marijuana, man. Marijuana is a girl from Cuba…Ganja…is a bird from Australia, I smoke HERB.” – Peter Tosh

Another famous rastafarian, Peter Tosh not only taught the legendary Bob Marley how to play guitar, he also appeared on many of the Legend’s early hits. Rastas, including Tosh think that any term for marijuana other than HERB is heresy as derogatory names like “marijuana” are used by those in power to incriminate and discriminate against those who are not.  Sure, we’re talkin’ semantics here, but Rastas assert their original African languages were ripped from them when they were taken into captivity as part of the slave trade and that English is an imposed, abusive, colonial language. To get around this Rastas created a modified vocabulary and dialect known as “Iyaric.” to not only take back language but reject modern western society, often referred to as “Babylon”. Tosh has many weed quotes attributed to him, but the one above, along with “legalize it” are our favorites.

Joe Rogan weed quote

Stoner Quote #10. “People say you can abuse marijuana. Well shit, you can abuse cheeseburgers too, you know? You don‘t go around closing Burger King because you can abuse something.” – Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan is about as famous for standing up for marijuana as his is for being associated with the TV show Fear Factor and the UFC. And he likes to get stoned and work out. In an appropriate blog post titled “I like to smoke weed and workout” he wrote, “Getting high and working out is one of the least talked about and least appreciated pleasures of fitness. Lifting weights is fun when you’re under the spell, cardio is cool too, but for me, nothing compares to getting really high and hitting the heavy bag. 2 tokes of the good is usually all it takes to start the enchanted wave – 3 if I wanna go deep.”

  14. Omgwana Kikbuti

    Well, I’m certainly not hating here, just noticing that the article needs some work–in particular, a little fact-checking. While Louis Armstrong did co-write “Muggles” (with Earl “Fatha” Hines), he “penned” neither “Hello Dolly” (written by Jerry Herman, from his score for the Broadway show and later musical film of the same name) nor “What a Wonderful World” (written by veteran songwriter George David Weiss and famed producer Bob Thiele). Want another good Armstrong-written tune? Check out “Potato Head Blues”! Just bringing a few facts to an otherwise fascinating website!

    Try a thing you haven’t done
    three times. Once, to get over the
    fear of doing it. Twice, to learn
    how to do it. And a third time, to
    figure out whether you like it enough to try it the fourth time…….
