Jazz legend Louis Armstrong. He preferred Mary Jane to booze and smoked it daily throughout most of his life, including before recordings and performances.

Comedian Rodney Dangerfield. During a medical marijuana conference, Dangerfield's widow shared a joke describing her late husband's love affair with reefer: "He'd say, 'I tell ya, that marijuana really has an effect on you. The other day, I smoked a half a joint, and I got so hungry I ate the other half.'" Mr. I Don't Get No Respect toked for 62 years to treat anxiety. Judging by his jittery demeanor, we're not quite sure how well it worked.

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Although he claims he hasn't medicated himself with pot since the '70s, the Governator knows the value of marijuana as a cash crop. As recently as 2007, Schwarzenegger told British GQ he doesn't consider marijuana "a drug, but a leaf."
Queen Victoria. Her Royal Majesty's personal physician, Sir John Russell Reynolds, found cannabis useful in treating the queen's menstrual cramps, dysmenorrhea, migraines, neuralgia, epileptic convulsions, and senile insomnia.
