Dolly Parton is a country music legend who has close relationships with famous tokers, including Miley Cyrus and Willie Nelson. But does she smoke weed?
Dolly Parton is an American icon. From starring in movies to winning all kinds of music awards, Parton’s first album debuted in 1967 and she continues to make great music to this day. But, does she smoke weed?
Despite Parton’s long and successful career, she’s been a celebrity with a relatively private life, never getting too personal in interviews or disclosing more information than necessary. She’s been married since 1966 to Carl Dean, a man who’s rumored to have only seen her perform once in all of their time together. Finding information on her marijuana habits — or lack there of — isn’t the easiest of tasks.

Still, Parton is close to people who are kind of marijuana icons themselves: Willie Nelson and Miley Cyrus. Nelson even has his own marijuana brand called Willie’s Reserve. The relationship between Nelson and Parton spans decades, with both of them starting their careers in Nashville.
“Back in 1964, ’65, ’66, we both were writing for Combine Music. … And we used to hang out a lot together, different people. Even Kristofferson back in those days! We all knew each other, and we used to sit around and write different songs,” Parton said of the relationship. Then, when speaking of the challenges of singing with someone with his talent, she said: “I called him up and said, ’Willie, you should have sent me a sack of dope if you thought I was gonna keep up with you!’” Which is probably just a figure of speech but it suggests that she also might be open to the idea of trying out new things.

Her relationship with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, with whom she’s collaborated several times, is more telling of her stance on marijuana. When asked about Cyrus’s behavior and sudden divorce to Liam Hemsworth, Parton said: “Lord, I’ve done everything, and what I ain’t done, I intend to. She’s going to do that, too. But Miley’s smart; Miley knows what she’s doing.”
So while Parton might not have spoken up about issues regarding marijuana, we all just kind of know that she’s okay with it and has likely given it a shot. I mean, it’s Dolly Parton.
