It’s unclear if the people listed below have active medical marijuana cards. However, these celebrities have all spoken out about using marijuana to help with pain or other struggles.

In a 2015 interview with The Daily Beast, he stated, “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm, and the only thing that offers any relief is marijuana. They’re talking about kids who have grand mal seizures, and they’ve discovered that marijuana eases that down to where these children can have a life.”
Sir Patrick Stewart has previously spoken about his use of cannabis for his aging hands. The “Star Trek” star, now 81 years old, stated during an interview with Esquire UK, “I mean, my main problem is my hands don't work very well.
