As a tribute to the magic herb which made Michael Phelps the most successful Olympic athlete of all time CoEdMagazine.com has compiled a list they call “The 10 Most Successful Potheads on the Planet… Cool Enough to Admit It!” This list doesn’t even attempt to be comprehensive, bypassing all of the greatest creative geniuses of all time (“Every actor, musician and artist ever is a huge pothead. It’s a fact, don’t dispute us” they claim), but does prove once and for all that smoking a bit of grass now and then won’t turn you into an apathetic slob (not that there’s anything wrong with that). So if you’re looking for role-models try these: Sir Richard Branson, the Virgin empire multi-billionaire who claims that if pot was legal he would sell it; Aaron Sorkin, multiple Emmy Award-winning writer and producer of the West Wing; Rick Steves, world traveller, TV host and author of 27 best-selling travel guides; Ted Turner, creator of CNN and the largest private land owner in America; Steven King, author of 50 novels which have sold over 500 million copies worldwide; Arnold Schwarzeneggar, who radically liberalized the medical marijuana laws in California; and, last but not least, President Barack Obama, who wrote about his stoner past in his book and once told an interviewer “When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point.”
