South African celebrities who smoke weed

Weed was once an extremely furtive activity hidden from the world. At the same time, medical marijuana advocates and weed industry educators have been the driving force to get weed legalised. One unexpected cultural force has been the growing number of female celebrities smoking weed.

Much in the same way that the fashion world is embraced, when it’s done by someone who’s relatively successful, smoking week is portrayed as light fun, a form of self-care or just relaxing. However, in the event of controversy, its more likely used as an indicator of moral failure. Furthermore, whether someone is glamorizing weed or simply advocating for it can land differently depending on who is hearing the sentiment.

Regardless of how you feel personally about weed, there is a growing contingent of female celebrities who smoke weed or have openly chatted about their past consumption.

Emtee has reportedly admitted that he’s been smoking weed since 2012, but is still adamant that it was not the cause of his recent fall on stage.

In an interview with Drum magazine Emtee explained that his fall was a result of exhaustion as opposed to the rife speculation that it was caused by substance abuse. “I didn’t fall because of being high. I have collected awards, I have done interviews, written songs and performed while high on weed and that was never a problem,” said Emtee.
