Our Poll Shows Everyone Wants To Smoke Up With Snoop, Not Many Want To Toke With Trump

If Canadian and American cannabis consumers can agree on one thing, it's that Snoop Dogg is their top pick for a celebrity smoke sesh, and having a puff with President Donald J. Trump is almost at the bottom of their cannabis wish list according to the latest Civilized poll.

To celebrate 4/20 this year, we partnered with PSB to conduct a survey of more than 1,600 North American adults, asking them questions like, "If you could smoke a joint with any celebrity, who would it be?"

Scroll down to see the top 10 results, ranked from most to least popular.

1. Snoop Dogg

It's no surprise that Snoop Dogg - arguably the biggest living cannabis icon right now - was the top choice for a celebrity smoke sesh. In total, 35 percent of American and another 35 percent of Canadian cannabis consumers wanted to blaze with Snoop Dogg. 

An even tougher question would be if cannabis consumers would rather have a puff with Snoop today, or hop in a time machine and join the smoking circle where Snoop and Tupac first met - and rap battled - each other.

2. Willie Nelson

The clear runner-up to Snoop was Willie Nelson. The country legend took 19 percent of the American vote and 15 percent of the Canadian vote. Apparently Toby Keith's cautionary tale of boarding Willie Nelson's tour bus has fallen on deaf ears.

3. Tommy Chong

Canadians showed slightly more love for their very own Tommy Chong, one of the first and most enduring cannabis comedians. In total, 9 percent of Canadian and 8 percent of American cannabis consumers wanted to toke with the Up in Smoke actor.

Surprisingly, his stoner comedy co-star Cheech Marin tied for 10th place on our list after receiving only 5 percent of the American vote. But at least he ranked higher than Dave.

4. Barack Obama

Nearly 1 in 10 Americans (9 percent) said they wanted to smoke a joint with former President Barack Obama. Unfortunately, the 44th commander-in-chief gave up cannabis decades ago. So if you want to have a puff with him, you'll have to jump back in that time machine, head to 1970s Hawaii and join "the choom gang" - the name of Obama's smoking circle.

But you might not want to since Obama was notorious for "intercepting" tokes.

5. Justin Trudeau

While 9 percent of Americans wanted to spark a joint with Obama, 8 percent of Canadians said they'd like to smoke up with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - who has pledged to legalize cannabis across the country by Canada Day 2018.  But like Obama, Trudeau doesn't smoke marijuana anymore. He says he hasn't had a puff since 2010.  

6. Bob Marley

Respondents weren't limited to living celebrities, so 5 percent of Americans and 9 percent of Canadians used the open-ended question as an opportunity to dream up a smoke sesh with the late reggae legend Bob Marley. If they're lucky, the ghost of Marley might show them a few soccer moves afterward.

7. Donald Trump

Obama wasn't the only commander-in-chief that consumers wanted to toke with. A surprising 8 percent of Americans and one Canadian respondent wanted to toke with President Trump. Unfortunately for them, Trump's a teetotaller. That means no marijuana, no cigarettes and no alcohol for him. But if they want to go halves on a bucket of KFC, The Donald would probably be down.

8. Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp

A total 6 percent of respondents wanted to blaze with Brad Pitt and chill out just like his character Floyd the couch guy in the 1993 action comedy 'True Romance' (minus the mafia hitmen though).

Another 6 percent of American cannabis consumers said they'd rather have a smoke sesh with Johnny Depp. Hopefully they'll lay off all that other stuff that Depp (as Raoul Duke) packed in the trunk of his cadillac in 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' (1998).

9.Woody Harrelson

The 5 percent of American respondents who picked Woody Harrelson basically spoiled their fantasy ballots. The longtime marijuana aficionado and advocate shocked cannabis consumers last month by announcing that he was taking a break from marijuana. So Willie Nelson will need to find someone else to play dominoes with. 

10. Seth Rogen and Cheech Marin

Last, but not least, stoner comedy stars Seth Rogen and Cheech Marin each received 5 percent of the vote from Canadian cannabis users. But anyone who wants to smoke with Rogen should master his joint-rolling technique first.

It’s no secret that my husband and I are longtime cannabis and hemp advocates. We’ve cheered as the majority of Americans have come around to supporting legalization, and applauded as cannabis law reform spreads from state to state. Still, decades of prohibitionist propaganda have left many in the dark about the powerful wellness potential of these long-demonized plants.
