Best Pro-Cannabis Celeb Halloween Costume Ideas

By Danyal Swan September 28, 2023
Celebrity Cannabis Costume Ideas

Every Halloween, Americans dress up en masse for the nation's premier spooky holiday. Many dress up as their favorite movie characters or fantasy creatures. Others will opt for cutesy couples' costumes or base their costume on some clever wordplay. Millions of other All Hallows’ Eve revelers will dress up as real-life people like athletes, politicians, singers, and anyone lucky—or unlucky—enough to be featured in the public zeitgeist when October 31st rolls around.

For cannabis enthusiasts who want to tie their Halloween costume to their passion for the good stuff, the options have traditionally been limited to the “stoner” Halloween costume. That requires a tie-dye shirt, a long wig, circular sunglasses, and a bead necklace, and maybe finish the look with some ratty sandals if it’s warm enough in your area. However, we’d argue that you’ve merely dressed up as a stereotypical caricature of a cannabis user from another decade. It’s a tired look, and greeting all the other partygoers with an overwrought "groovy, man!" is going to get old faster than you think.

This year, why not aim for a more creative cannabis costume? Before you wrap yourself from head to toe in toilet paper and go as the world's biggest joint (and are inevitably mistaken for a mummy), let’s focus on real-world celebrity cannabis advocates. This way, you can find a costume that is current, recognizable, and culturally relevant while still being cannabis adjacent. Better yet, you’ll be sending those all-important signals to other cannabis users when it’s time to step outside for a session.

Pro-Cannabis Celebs as Halloween Costumes: The Obvious

We can start with those celebrities whose names are frequently linked with cannabis in mainstream culture. From comedians to musicians that stay true to the plant and refuse to hide their use, any of these options are sure to steal the show.

Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen Cannabis Costume

As the prototypical stoner comedy star, Seth Rogen has business acumen and an acting resume well beyond weed comedies, so he can certainly stand on his own merits. Still, his love of cannabis is well enough known to place him on our Obvious list, and he is a cannabis entrepreneur with his own highly rated cannabis brand. He has a recognizable "put-together slacker" vibe that can make for a decent Halloween costume if you nail the hair and glasses.

Adam Devine

Adam Devine Cannabis Costume

Best known as the energetic and unpredictable Adam DeMamp from Workaholics, this actor and character embodies the essence of office antics and youthful rebellion. His hilarious portrayal of a man-child navigating the adult world has made him a comedic staple of the millennial generation. Dressing as Adam for Halloween promises a night of laughter and a few (possibly ill-advised) adventures.

Pete Davidson

Technically, Pete Davidson counts as an iconic stoner, at least in this current cultural moment. A goofy smile, perfectly messy hair, and a lot of questionable fake tattoos make a good start for an easy costume put together with clothes in your closet.

Woody Harrelson

Woody Harrelson is another name that is perhaps too big to merely be labeled "a weed guy." Fun roles like Kingpin, Zombieland, and Semi-Pro make him a good choice for Halloween. His cannabis advocacy makes him a great candidate for spreading the good word about marijuana. 

Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg Cannabis Costume

You're already watching for him, so let's get it out of the way. The ubiquitous weed celebrity, rapper, and media mogul Snoop Dogg has displayed a sharp and varied fashion sense throughout the years that allows you to take the costume in a number of different directions. Don’t forget that Snoop has been a cannabis entrepreneur for years, with his own celebrated brand of products - get extra crafty and convincing by making your own version of his packaging.

2 Chainz

2 Chainz Cannabis Costume

If you haven't seen 2 Chainz's "Most Expensivest" on YouTube, courtesy of GQ, do yourself a favor and rectify that now. As the name suggests, the rap, fashion, and marijuana icon explores the most expensive things, including weed, bongs, and infused cuisines. Channel 2 Chainz by carrying around your favorite pipe or bong (or if you're in Illinois, maybe a Holy Union infused pre-roll), don your favorite chains, and snag a mic to drop some of his catchy hooks and witty wordplay.

Lil Wayne

Known not just for his raspy voice and intricate rhymes, Wayne's unmistakable dreadlocks, tattoos, and penchant for cannabis have made him a standout figure in both music and the marijuana community. Emulating Lil Wayne for Halloween means channeling the swagger of a rap superstar, with a dash of skater cool and a lyrical genius that's hard to match. Dark sunglasses, face tattoos, and a hoodie make a good start for getting your Weezy on.

Pro-Cannabis Celebs as Halloween Costumes: The Cannaladies

This group is a love letter to our favorite female stoners. Whether loud and proud users (ahem, Chelsea) or down-low lovers, there's an option for you.

Chelsea Handler

Chelsea Handler Cannabis Costume

For the blonde ladies looking for an easy “famous stoner comedian” look, Chelsea Handler is the move. She’s solidified herself as a cannabis queen with her Instagram posts and her foray into cannabis products, from tailoring custom kits to exploring a brand of her own. A margarita in one hand and one of her signature, classic books in the other is recommended for the look, but not required.

Aubrey Plaza

Aubrey Plaza Cannabis Costume

The one word we'd use to describe this celeb? Iconic. Aubrey won hearts as apathetic, deadpan April Ludgate in Parks and Recreation, then wooed stoners everywhere by smoking pot with the Sisters of the Valley, lovingly called the Weed Nuns, in promotion of The Litte Hours. Channel her characters - really, you can't go wrong there - or grab a jean jacket, white henley, and some crochet hand warmers for a low-key costume only the downest of Plaza fans will get.

Sarah Silverman

For women who want to go the “famous stoner comedian” route, Sarah Silverman is one of a few options. She’s probably the most recognizable among A-list female comics. You’ll need a long, deep brown wig if you don’t already have the right hairstyle, a button-down shirt, and a pair of boot-cut jeans.

Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law is a huge star who has also been pretty open about her casual use of cannabis. Despite that, she’s much more well known for her peerless acting chops and fun personality than for being a famous stoner. Her many iconic roles make for an array of costume possibilities in a variety of styles.

Kirsten Dunst

While she’s not enjoying the same Hollywood buzz she did a decade or two ago, the talented and accomplished actress gets a shout-out for an iconic quote. Kirsten famously stated that “The world would be a better place if more people smoke marijuana,” to a British magazine. Roles like Marie Antoinette and Mary Jane from Sam Raimi’s take on Spider-Man could make a good Dunst representation. May we suggest a foam mannequin head with a soggy Spider-Man mask attached to your head upside-down so you can recreate the famous kiss-in-the-rain scene all night long?

Kendall Jenner 

Kendall has labeled herself "a stoner," and who are we to question her? Her fashion prowess also sets the table for any number of chic costume choices. Don your best 'fit and channel those Kardashian-Jenner vibes, and put a bow on it with a bejeweled roach clip or cigarette holder.

Pro-Marijuana Celebs as Halloween Costumes: The Vintage

It's no secret nor surprise that cannabis use predates state-legal medical and recreational programs. Consider these celebs leaders in pro-marijuana use, boasting its benefits medicinally and creatively.

Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, or Jerry Garcia

Jimi Hendrix Cannabis Costume

We’re lumping all these famously stoned mid-century musicians into a single entry so you can choose the individual you physically resemble the most. From there, throw on your most well-worn t-shirt with a headband and some ratty jeans and call it a day. Bonus points if you spend the night serenading everyone around you with your favorite songs by these vintage stoners.

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson Cannabis Costume

Another iconic, braided weed smoker on the other end of the music spectrum is country western and folk maestro Willie Nelson. A pair of long, gray braids, an acoustic guitar, and a red bandana used as a headband are the keystones of this costume. For an authentic detail, make sure the guitar is a nylon-string model that is sufficiently beaten up and filthy to pass as Willie's legendary ax, which he affectionately calls "Trigger."

Bob Marley

One important exception to our “famously stoned vintage” category is Bob Marley. His iconic look and vibe are still very much recognizable, especially among cannabis enthusiasts. If you already have dreads and the Rastafari culture behind you (we’d caution against cultural appropriation if you don’t), all you need is the legendary crochet hat, a white tee, and jeans. 

Harrison Ford

I don’t think anyone has ever listed Indiana Jones among Hollywood’s iconic stoners. Still, according to his Star Wars co-star and friend Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford’s strain of choice was so strong that she joked about it making her forget most of 1976. We suggest a stoner version of Han Solo, a fun take on one of his most well-known characters.

Bonus: Dynamic Stoner Duo Character Costumes

No marijuana costume list would be complete without iconic stoner movie characters. From classics to new-age television series, grab your best bud and get to raiding your closets!

Jay and Silent Bob

Jay and Silent Bob Cannabis Costume

Jay and Silent Bob are the irreverent duo from Kevin Smith's universe. While not celebs per say, their embodiment of the laid-back, stoner ethos with their ever-present cloud of smoke makes them ones in our eyes. Jay, the loud-mouthed chatterbox, contrasts perfectly with his mostly mute sidekick, Silent Bob, creating comedic gold you can replicate with ease; signature backward hat and beanie required, of course. Whether you go for Clerks, Mall Rats, or the classic Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, your 'stume is sure to be a hit.

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson

Broad City Cannabis Costume

Channel everyone's favorite Broad City broads this Halloween. While technically characters, they're quoted so often in our offices and dispensaries that they've earned the term celebrity in our minds. Grab your bestie and get into shenanigans only free-spirited Ilana and awkwardly hilarious Abbi would find themselves in. With five seasons of gold and countless outfits to choose from (wigs, the Florida sweatsuits, or THE blue dress), the options are endless. Bonus points if you have your tokin' (get it?) Bevers or Lincoln in tow.

Harold and Kumar

The most epic tale of a munchie run. Dressing as Harold and Kumar for Halloween means diving into a world of laugh-out-loud escapades, late-night cravings, and the true spirit of bromance. Whether you don Harold's clean (at the beginning, at least) open button-up and white tee or Kumar's grunge-esque graphic tee, open button-up, and jacket, your costume won't be complete without a bag of White Castle.

Cheech and Chong

Go ahead. We can't stop you. Cheech and Chong are unquestionably iconic. In fact, the big chain Halloween stores still sell sets of Cheech and Chong-inspired costumes, so you don't even have to do the work of putting the individual pieces together. The comedians make an amusing couple's costume, but it's not very original or timely - more classic and expected, but there’s nothing wrong with that!
