Top 10 Cannabis Quotes


There are tons of marijuana-related quotes out there, many icons throughout modern history have advocated marijuana usage. While there are too many to list all quotes, I have selected ten of the best quotes, based on what was said and who said it.

“We all need something to help us unwind at the end of the day.

“I had just come back from an incident with the police and a snowmobile when Pat Cadell called from New York, saying that he was with a bunch of New York Times reporters in a bar and they were curious to know what I thought about what Clinton had to say about marijuana – that he had tried it in college but “didn’t inhale.” I was embarrassed. What do you mean, “didn’t inhale?” What the hell do you think we smoke it for?
