Sometimes the more random the news is, the most fun it is. And this is pretty random. Dave Hill, who happens to be your everyday usual Twitter usual, tweeted out the photograph you see above of an alleged Brooke Shields smoking pot with the lead singer of Bad Brains, H.R, writing, “here is a photo of brooke sheilds smoking pot with h.r.
#what.” If that really is Brooke Shields, then it’s a pretty old picture, which, as is expected, has gone viral on the web, splitting viewers into two camps: those who think it is her, and those who don’t. For what it’s worth, her people have got right on it and categorically told HuffPo that, “It isn’t her.” Hill obviously read their denial and got right back on Twitter and said, “Brooke Shields representative commenting on that bad brains picture to huff post means that Brooke Shields probably googled me today. Suup.” Which got us giggling, also because H.R looks pretty baked. So guys, what do you think? Is it Shields taking a hit out of the pipe? And what year do you reckon this is from?

We all love a good marijuana scandal — let’s say it’s the kind of thing that proves the rich and famous are human. Naturally, rappers like Wiz Khalifa actors like James Franco are the equivalent of a super prompt delivery service for these stories. But sometimes we like the special stuff, like when a less obvious star is caught on camera like Miley Cyrus smoking salvia on her 18th birthday. And it’s a riot when celebs full-on boast of their relationship with the green stuff, like Soulja Boy did via Twitter. Were we a little surprised when Robin Thicke was busted for pot possession? Hmm, maybe just by the fact that he got caught.
Now, it’s not like we’re advocating drug use here, folks. We’re just going to celebrate 4/20 the best way we know how, by looking at all our favorite famous people, including Kristen Stewart , Rihanna and Rupert Grint with the infamous Ms. Mary Jane.

Souja Boy. Surrounded by mountains of pot. Holding up massive bags of pot. Looking very gleeful around all that pot. The magnitude of our WTF is pretty high. A retweet by Snoop Dogg yesterday brought the photograph (see above) to our attention. It read, “
#puffpuffpasstuesdays souljaboy smoke us out already” which is perfectly apt because … will you just look at the picture? Fortunately, no cops need to go charging to scene because TMZ explained the situation. A spokesperson from Soulja’s team was quick to clear up all the smoke (couldn’t resist, sorry) revealing that the artist was at a marijuana dispensary in California earlier this month. The rep made sure to repeat that he didn’t buy any of the weed. It’s owned by one of Soulja’s buddies who invited him to have a look and the rapper just had to take a photograph. He clearly has Snoop’s blessings!
On another unrelated note, we happened to read a comment by a viewer on the story’s page and it needs to win an award. The very sartorially inclined reader wrote, “He must be high to wear a jacket like that.”

While the negative effects of smoking marijuana have been portrayed on film for over seventy years, the current age of stoner-friendly cinema can largely be credited to one Judd Apatow. As the unofficial ringleader of the Frat Pack, he wrote, directed and produced a veritable bumper crop of pro-Mary Jane films over the last half-dozen years or so. Films like Knocked Up, Pineapple Express and Superbad worked very hard to smash the stigma that the Reagan administration attached to the cannabis plant, and their tremendous success at the box office unquestionably played a role (albeit, likely, a minor one) in the “Legalize It” movement that is slowly gaining steam in both Red and Blue states.
Although Apatow had nothing to do with this weekend’s release of the latest entrant in the stoner-friendly canon, the medieval fantasy Your Highness (get it?), we here at TheFABLife figured now is as good a time as any to countdown our all-time, Top 25 fictional stoners in cinematic history. From the trailblazing likes of Cheech Marin to the nonsense-spewing Jay of Clerks fame, from the highly paranoid/confessional behavior of Nicole Kidman’s character in Eyes Wide Shut to the perpetually buzzed Wooderson in Dazed and Confused, we hope you enjoy this look at cinema’s most baked characters, maaaaaan!
