Britney Spears is one of the most iconic pop stars of all time. Does she smoke weed?
Britney Spears is one of those celebrities who needs no introduction. Aside from inspiring some of the most iconic imagery of the late 90s/early 2000s, she’s also led a chaotic life, which she’s managed to bounce back from — even if she burned down her home gym while in quarantine. We know this pop superstar likes to have a good time, but does include smoking weed?
Britney Spears was a child star, starting her career at age 11 in the “Mickey Mouse Club” along with Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake. Like all Disney stars, she had a publicity team that curated her image, so news about her using weed only popped up after her career peaked.
In 2009, her opinion on marijuana wasn’t the best. While performing in Vancouver, BC, Spears reportedly stopped the show due to the large amount of marijuana smoke that was surrounding the stage.
Rolling Stone reports that an announcement was made mid show. “After performing the final encore, Spears walked offstage with the words, “Thanks Vancouver. You were wonderful. Drive safe. Don’t smoke weed!”

During an appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show” in 2016, Spears discussed her past with weed a bit more, claiming that even while working in Vegas she steered clear of all kinds of substances, from marijuana to alcohol.
“I am aware of the partying that’s going on [in Las Vegas], a lot of the people are very intoxicated at my shows. I actually got contact high [at a show],” she said. “I haven’t smoked weed since I was like 17 years old and all of a sudden towards the end of the show it was so strong I couldn’t function, just from the contact of it, I was like, “Oh my goodness”, I had to leave, I had to go. I just said I can’t do it.”
That sounds a little dramatic Britney, but sure.

While Spears’s relationship with marijuana doesn’t sound like the most amicable one, the herb wasn’t exactly as widely accepted back then as it is now. Who knows if her thoughts have evolved along with the world’s perspective?
