Celebs who support Prop. 19: Everybody must get stoned?

Zach Galifianakis supports Prop. 19

What do Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg have in common? Support for Proposition 19, which if it gets a majority of votes in Tuesday's election would legalize marijuana for personal use in California.

Snoop Dogg supports Prop. 19 "Prop. 19? You know where I stand on that. Very high," the Dogg has said.

"I think it's absolutely time to at least see if it works, experiment," said comic David Cross, who voices Minion on the new DreamWorks animated flick "Megamind." "Let California be the experiment."

Sting, Danny Glover, Melissa Etheridge and of course Bill Maher and "Hangover" actor Zach Galifianakis are among the "yes" votes -- though of course there are two sides to the argument, even if you lean Libertarian.

Which other celebs support Prop. 19, and why? Click on the photo of Snoop at right to launch a detailed photo gallery of a dozen or more entertainers who don't fear the reefer. What their weed habits say about them is something you'll have to find out for yourself.

REEFER MADNESS!!! This headline is BS

You don't have to smoke weed to support human freedom.

What a waste of brain power and your journalistic education. Just because someone supports Prop. 19, it means they use pot? I support(ed) it, and I haven't smoked in years and years and years.

Responsible journalism would have emphasized repeatedly at every opportunity that alcohol and tobacco and pharmaceuticals are legal and readily available, and many of them are more toxic than marijuana. And that the issue is very much about the criminal justice system being bogged down with marijuana users when resources should be used to go after dangerous actual criminals. And that by keeping marijuana illegal, YOU (yes, you, the article- and headline-writing journalists) are supporting the status quo of international drug cartels. All of which are good reasons to legalize it... and then discuss with your kids why they should hold off on using it, until after their brains have slowed down from their rapid growth.

But no, instead we got more fear-mongering, and idiotic conclusions and stereotypes which create the illusion that just because people are in favor of legalization, they're potheads. And that marijuana is worse than alcohol, which, by the way, is still legal and killing people every day. Go ask your Friday and Saturday night emergency room physicians, if you don't believe me.
