Celebrities and Pot: When Hollywood Gets High (PHOTOS)

Mike Hess / April 10, 2011

Earlier this week, Natalie Portman commented about her previous experiences with marijuana, joking that while she’s way too old and tired to smoke pot nowadays, during her college years she definitely experimented with the drug.

Portman is the latest in a long line of celebrities to either speak openly about marijuana — or, worse, fall into trouble with the law because of it. Whether it’s Snoop Dogg constantly referencing it in his songs or Seth Rogen making an entire movie out of it (see: Pineapple Express), pot in Hollywood is something that has been a mainstay for quite some time, and doesn’t show any signs of letting up.

So, enjoy a clear-headed look at some of today’s stars who have made headlines thanks to their brushes with weed.
