Does Adrian Grenier Smoke Weed?

Adrian Grenier is most notable for his role as Vincent Chase, the laidback heartthrob movie star in the HBO show “Entourage”, which ran for eight seasons. Some may argue that he became the poster boy for smoking marijuana on the show, but all the characters were smoking and doing drugs. Jerry Ferrara, who played Turtle, recalls interactions with fans where they want to recreate an actual moment from the show, “They'll come up and say, ‘Hey, want to come smoke a joint?’ I feel them get disappointed when I'm actually like, "I haven't smoked weed in 10 years, sorry." And even if I did, I don't know if I would smoke your random weed.” 

After “Entourage” ended, Grenier remained an active voice in the drug industry, as he produced the 2012 documentary, “How to Make Money Selling Drugs”. Though the title might be misleading, the goal of the film is to shed some light on how the War on Drugs failed, and is maintained for the wrong reasons.  The film offers ten easy steps showing you how to grow an illegal drug business from the ground up. Some familiar Hollywood stars are featured in the documentary including, 50 Cent, Susan Sarandon, Eminem, and Woody Harrelson. This wasn’t easy for Grenier to come by however, “I had a lot of work to do in order to get people to talk about it”, including himself, “I think that drugs certainly have their place, and they can be very useful… And they certainly can play an important role in one’s growth as a human being. Of course, balance is the key to everything in life…” When asked if marijuana played a role in his life, Grenier responded, “I honestly have ... on occasion, I have enjoyed a little marijuana… I certainly want to be very, very clear that I’m not advocating the use of marijuana.”

As medical marijuana continues to gain ground across the US, more and more colleges are adding cannabis to their curriculum. In fact, more than half of America's pharmaceutical schools (62 percent) now teach students about medical marijuana according to a new survey conducted by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Pharmacy. "With more states legalizing medical marijuana, student pharmacists must be prepared to effectively care for their patients who may use medical marijuana alone or in combination with prescription or over-the-counter medications," the study's authors wrote.
