High Holidays: 10 Celebrities Likely to Be Celebrating Both 420 and Passover This Year
Two very special holidays for the peoples of Los Angeles happen to fall on the same Hump Day this year: 4/20 and Passover, Day 2. One is a silly excuse to dabble in unmentionables (which a certain High Times editor claims "points us in a direction for the responsible use of cannabis") and the other is a worlds more significant celebration of the ancient Jewish Exodus.
Nonetheless -- they both see their share of celebration 'round these parts. And we know many a public figure who may be forced to choose between strict observance of one or the other in 2011. Matzah or iHop? Kush or kosher? Home-bound or homies?
Or, perhaps, the two can exist harmoniously. Both holidays do place a strong emphasis on doing as little as possible. Better yet, let's ask some of the biggest Jewish stoners we know:
10. Larry David
It's hard to tell where Larry David's reality ends and character begins, but he's at least a big proponent of medical pot on the show -- and always delights in a good 'n' awkward ghetto-dealer transaction. As for the Jewish part -- you don't get much more Jewish than Larry.
9. Adam Sandler
He's the star of a million half-lidded stoner comedies, and doesn't exactly denounce the stuff. One of the million examples of Sandler fusing Jewdom with pot-dom: In the Chanukah Song, he sings, "smoke your marijuan-icah."
8. Jonah Hill
7. James Franco
Apart from the whole "Pineapple Express" thing, did you see him at the Oscars? Don't think he remembers that night very well.
6. Bill Maher
No. 1 proponent of legalizing it. You know, for the economy. Even Mos Def knows it!
