Celebrities who belong on Mount Rushmore on marijuana

Saturday is '420', the biggest day on the cannabis industry calendar.

In honor of this “hash holiday,” JS asked cannabis bud experts which celebrities should be on “the Mount Rushmore of marijuana.”

As you might expect, there were a lot of household names, but one loomed larger than others: Snoop Dogg.

According to him, the reasoning is simple Caitlyn Smith, senior marketing manager for the Planet 13 chain of pharmacies.

“He has maintained his cannabis lifestyle for decades and has been a champion spokesperson normalizing the use of cannabis,” Smith told JS.

Although Snoop Dogg was the No. 1 name mentioned, there were others who were almost as popular with cannabis insiders.

Another name that popped up is country cannabis legend Willie Nelson.

Marlon Coburn, the CEO of THC Design, a Los Angeles-based cannabis breeder, said Nelson should be on the list because he stands out as an “icon” among enthusiasts.

“His outspoken support for legalization and his role in promoting cannabis reform have earned him a respected status among enthusiasts,” Coburn told JS.

Many of the people asked about marijuana's Mount Rushmore also mentioned reggae legend Bob Marley, whose love of cannabis was heavily depicted in the film “Bob Marley: One Love,” released earlier this year.

Jesse Ezekiel Tolz of The Travel Agency, a cannabis retailer in New York City, says Marley deserves the credit because he was “an extremely impactful individual who was a phenomenal artist and an advocate for cannabis.”

Ali Garawi, the CEO of Muha Meds, a Los Angeles vape company, thinks stoner comedians Cheech and Chong deserve to be on Mount Rushmore — and not just because theyhave popularized cannabis culture through their comedies and films.”

Garawi said the comedy duo played a fundamental role in pot pop culture, but singled out Tommy Chong “for being a vocal advocate for cannabis rights and medicinal use.”

Martha Stewart was mentioned by a few people, and a few mentioned Rihanna.

The reason for Rihanna is simple, according to Janelle Mucci, general manager of RoadTrip Dispensary in Salisbury, Massachusetts. 'She can hold her own there.'

Woody Harrelson was also a contender, as was Seth Rogan, who was picked by Jimmy Kimmel one of his own Mount Rushmore picks a few months back.

But not everyone in the indica industry is good at putting celebrities on the marijuana Mount Rushmore.

Olivia Alexander, founder and CEO of Kush Queen, says: “Celebrities are puppets and do not contribute to the industry, they plunder it”, and “operate the factory for money and profit.”

She added: “Cannabis consumers don't care about celebrity weed because they know they don't grow it. Cannabis is unique in that that feeling; people want to buy it from people who actually know the plant or actually own one part of the community.”

To this end, Robert Holland, bamong Tempo Crackers, a cannabis snack product, would prefer a marijuana Mount Rushmore honor Mary Jay Rathbun.

“She is an early advocate of cannabis best known for baking and distributing pot brownies to AIDS patients in San Francisco during the early stages of the HIV epidemic,” Holland explained.

Anna Walters, the co-founder of the cannabis brand Breez, might note how founding father George Washington grew hemp at Mount Vernon and joke that she probably “would the same guys as at regular Mt. Rushmore!”

Derek Chase, the president of Flora + Bast, a cannabis wellness brand, admits that his marijuana Mount Rushmore does not include sentient beings.

“No people! I'd rather see a sun, a moon and the earth!”
