Stoners the world over recognise 4.20pm as the best time to light up, so much so that April 20 has become known as the unofficial international holiday for weed smokers. What most people don’t know is the true origins of 420.

To commemorate this glorious day, we’ve listed our 10 favourite stoner celebrities we’d love to share a blunt with.
