15 Anime Characters Who Probably Smoke Weed

List Rules Vote up the characters who you’re convinced are locked in a kush coma.

There are plenty of anime series out there that are much more fun to watch while stoned, and one has to wonder, do the characters in those shows ever smoke weed themselves?

Realistically, the answer is probably no. Drug use is heavily stigmatized in Japan, and the legal consequences for recreational cannabis use can be pretty steep. Because of this, Japanese media doesn’t usually depict drug use, and when drugs do impact an anime story line, it’s often not a lot of fun.

That said, it’s hard not to think of some characters as total potheads, particularly Stoner from Eureka Seven. Yes, that’s his actual name. So, while there most likely aren’t many characters who definitely, canonically do indulge in laughing grass, there are plenty of anime characters who probably smoke weed, or at least totally would if given the chance.

Mugen — Samurai Champloo

Mugen of Samurai Champloo has definitely gotten high at least once. He was part of a group that got ripped out of their minds after a field of what looked to be dank nug was set ablaze. While an accidental contact high does not a stoner make, Mugen’s aggressively anti-authoritarian attitude fits nicely with the whole weed thing. He’s definitely the type to light up just to stick it to someone who told him not to.

Shikamaru Nara — Naruto

Why is everything such a drag for Naruto’s Shikamaru Nara ? There are a lot of reasons, but one of them is that he’s probably smoking way too much weed. Seriously, this guy spends most of his free time spacing out and staring at clouds. You only do that if you’re a nephologist, an artist, or a pothead.

The Yamanakas are some of his family’s closest friends, and they specialize in growing and selling plants. There’s probably a special Yamanaka strain that Ino, Choji, and Shikamaru spent most their adolescence inhaling. Sure, they risked getting murdered by Shikamaru’s mom, but like true ninja in training, they always got away with it. As an adult, he and Temari occasionally eat pot brownies after Shikadai goes to bed.

Taizou Hasegawa — Gintama

While just about everyone in Gintama (besides Shinpachi) probably smokes pot occasionally, the most obvious stoner is Taizou Hasegawa, AKA MADAO, which is short for marude damena ossan (roughly, “totally hopeless old guy” in English). After losing his government job, Hasegawa wanders around aimlessly, taking on odd jobs and sleeping in the park. Hasegawa is a dead ringer for the “lazy pothead” stereotype.

Do Anime fans smoke weed?

I’m sitting here blazing and watching Anime. And I wonder, do most Anime fans not smoke weed?

In general we are a “nerdy” bunch. And many Anime fans I know, don’t!

So, do you guys smoke or no?

Second question I’m wondering, would you consider yourself “popular” as a person or not? I wonder if that affects who smokes and who doesn’t.

I actually snort my weed.

Gets to the brain faster.

Are you even serious dude!?

The fine is cheaper than a seat belt ticket where I live, and it’s legal in a bunch of places including the nation’s capital, also very easy to get medical marijuana

I got pulled over once hotboxing my car with 3 of my friends and the cop just let us go with a warning

It shouldn’t have been illegal in the first place, it is much less harmful in every aspect compared to alcohol

It will probably be fully legal in the US in the next 5-10 years

You misunderstand. I just think more reclusive people like us would avoid going through illicit activities to obtain said substance.

So I feel there would be a correlation.

Oh god. the smell is SOOO horrible.

You know how people don’t know when they stink like shit but nobody wants to be rude and tell the they smell like shit?

That’s what pot heads are.

Seriously. it literally smells like farts.

That’s what you dumbasses are are smoking. farts.

I smoke weed everyday, you are not alone my friend 🙂

I’m a known person in my school and community
But I guess you could be in a nationwide news if you get caught smoking weed here in my country.

You see. this is the kind of reaction I’m talking about, the one my anime friends give.
