Weed is definitely cool, but it’s also one of the best ways to make money right now. In 2021, marijuana sales reached nearly $27 billion with estimates for 2022 sales coming in at around $32 billion. However, marijuana is a plant and primarily it’s used to help people these days. That is to say, it’s more important than ever to highlight the issues associated with cannabis and social justice reform. Yet many of the celebrities who’ve emerged as outspoken brand ambassadors are mostly collecting a paycheck.

In short, we have to do better and these stars are leading the way for the cause. Keep reading to find out who they are and what they’re doing to normalize and legalize weed.
