If you smoke weed then you’ve probably have been asked “Who is one person you’d want to smoke a joint with”. Here are the top 5 legends you’d want to smoke a joint with, and no we didn’t include Bob Marley.
According to reports, Einstein was a smoking machine. The pipe literally never left his mouth. In fact, he loved smoking so much he was part of the Montreal Pipe Smokers Club. When I envision smoking a joint with the ol’ Einstein, I can’t help but feel a bit bad because the dude would probably much prefer a pipe.
Albert Einstein, a man whose name is practically synonymous with genius, comes in at #1 because he is one of history’s greatest thinkers, physicist, and mathematician of all time. Smoking a joint and discussing the theory or relativity, his contribution to the atomic bomb (doubt he’d want to talk about that) and how life and space work would be an absolute surreal experience. Especially considering he was, diagnosed with a learning disability at an early age and a dropout at the age of 15.
Einstein is definitely one of the legends you’d want to smoke a joint with. PS. If you want to know who the smartest weed smokers in history are, read here.
Charles Bukowski was an author and poet who lived the life of a destitute alcoholic drifter. His novels and poems were riddled with violent images, graphic language, and pessimism.
Between picking up young women at his poetry reads and drinking himself into a stupor every single night, Charles Bukowski always found the time to write; penning over 45 novels in his life, many of them becoming best-selling.
What makes Charles Bukowski a legend that you’d want to a smoke joint with is his authenticity. He lived an uninfluenced life and and never missed an opportunity to truly be himself. He drank all day, wrote and smoked all night, and peeled off the wounds from his aching soul and inscribed them into his literature.
Smoking a joint with Bukowski would probably be a rollercoaster of spontaneous events; he might get really drunk and throw a telephone at you or pass out on the couch with a bottle in his hand, and that’s exactly why he is my #2 candidate. He is one of the originals. Charles Bukowski is definitely someone i’d like to smoke a joint with.
PS. Did you know that Hank Moody from Californiacation is based off Charles Bukowski?
Che Guevara is one of the most iconic people to have ever lived. As a revolutionary Cuban hero, Che spent his lifetime as a highly politicized and controversial figure.
For many around the world, Che has become a generic symbol of the underdog, the revolutionist, the iconoclast, and the martyr. He served his time as a doctor in the Cuban Revolution War but also trained in weapons use, becoming Fidel Castro’s most-trusted aides.
Smoking a joint with Che Guevara would be a profound experience. Hearing his stories and learning about his fight from a 20-man army hiding in the mountains of Cuba to overtaking the Cuban regime and cementing himself in history. The dude is one of a kind.
There aren’t many men in history who have lived the life that Kim Philby has. Kim was a pupil of Westminster School and a Cambridge graduate. He was a child born into aristocracy, a cricket enthusiast, and the epitome of what you would envision a super wealthy British gentleman to be.
But Kim had powerful secrets, secrets that would one day expose a whole nation. Kim was a spy but not jus any spy, he was a Russian spy working as the HEAD of M15, the British Secret Services of Intelligence.
While he was serving his British nation and fishing for war secrets at afternoon high tea, Kim was also handing over top secret information to Russian operatives. As one of history’s most famous and controversial spies, Kim Philby is definitely a legend you’d want to smoke a joint with.
Frida Kahlo is one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century. Best known for her distinct fashion, insane unibrow, and turbulent marriage to Diego Rivera, Frida is exactly what you envision when you think of a romantic artist.
Frida comes in at #5 because she would be incredibly entertaining to smoke a joint with. From her days of being a successful artist to being jailed for attempted murder.
