Getting Civilized At The Emmys

The 67th Prime Time Emmys have wrapped up, with highlights including Viola Davis making history as the first black woman to ever win Outstanding Drama Lead Actress, and the witticisms of first-time host Andy Samberg (who either bombed, or killed it, depending on who you ask.)

Another point of interest? The A-listers on Sunday's red carpet who support an issue dear to our hearts: cannabis.

Here's our list of our favourite civilized stars of the 2015 Emmys.

1. Jon Hamm

Hamm is on this list because of his character, Don Draper. Hamm - awarded Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Draper in AMC's hit Mad Men - smokes up on the silver screen. Draper was all about the joints and hookah throughout Season 6, which has some decidedly 420-friendly overtones. Groovy.

2. Bill Murray

Murray is Hollywood royalty: he's a) a total badass and b) one of our greatest living actors and c) a vocal supporter of legalization. In a 2014 Reddit AMA, Murray described America's war on drugs as "a failure".

"Psychologists recommend smoking marijuana rather than drinking if you are in a stressful situation. These are ancient remedies, alcohol and smoking, and they only started passing laws against them 100 years ago."

He received the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie for "Olive Kitteridge."

3. Jon Stewart

Stewart is on fire these days: he took home the Emmy for Outstanding Writing/Directing For a Variety Series for his work on " The Daily Show," The actor , director, and writer has openly admitted to writing many movies while high, and referred to CNN as "cool as fuck" for devoting so much airtime to covering pot.

4. Tracy Morgan

The Emmys were Tracy Morgan's first appearance at a Hollywood event since his June 2014 car accident: he handed out the final award for Outstanding Drama Series to Game of Thrones and gave a moving, funny speech about his road to recovery. Morgan's well-known as a cannabis connoisseur, as indicated by his description of smoking dank at Prince's house in this clip.

5. Frances Mcdormand

The " Fargo," "North Country" and "The Man Who Wasn't There" star earned the Emmy for "Olive Kiterridge" with co-star Bill Murray. She's a long-term, a vocal supporter of recreational cannabis, which she's used since age 17.

And we'd be totally remiss if we didn't mention Amy Poehler: while she didn't take home a statue, the Parks and Recreation star's #SmartGirlsAsk campaign was a major win for women on the red carpet. #SmartGirlsAsk is also proof-positive that Poehler's no dope, despite having formerly served as a judge at the High Times Cannabis Cup.

Latest.

Lawmakers in Quebec failed to pass a bill that would have increased the minimum age for purchasing and consuming cannabis from 18 to 21 before the end of the legislative session. When the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) was elected to power in Quebec last year, they brought with them a promise to raise the legal age for buying and consuming recreational cannabis. Right now, anyone 18 or older can legally purchase cannabis in Quebec, which is tied with Alberta for having the lowest legal age for recreational cannabis.

Can we see some ID please?
