The Barbie Movie And Its Relationship With Weed: Who's The Biggest Stoner In The Cast?

This article was originally published on The Fresh Toast and appears here with permission.

“Wake up and see the sparkle” is a favorite Barbie phrase, but maybe Barbie is so popular and cool because it is a bit of a green sparkle. Barbie should be happy (and her “parent” Mattel) as she earned over $2 billion last year and that doesn’t count anything from the movie released this year.  The iconic figure has been everything from a doctor to a disco queen and people continue to adore her.

Of course, with all this pressure to earn, look good and be fabulous, she might take a little time to enjoy an edible and chill out. Ken, for his good looks, perfect hair and just right tan could also quietly use a vape while musing he doesn’t get a house.

The Barbie movie is finally out. But how chill is the cast?

Ryan Gosling

Six-pack Gosling has made a name in such movies as La La Land, Remember the Titans and Crazy Stupid Love.  Unabashedly a fan of marijuana, his picture at Cannes enjoying a joint has become a favorite meme.  A fun-loving guy given to impulses, he purchased Tagine, a Beverly Hill restaurant, that has become a popular hot spot.

Will Ferrell

Veteran actor Ferrell's movies include Christmas favorite Elf, Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgundy, and the Lego Movies. He is an SNL alum and he founded the comedy website Funny or Die in 2007 with his writing partner Adam McKay.  From consuming with Snoop Dog and Vince Vaughn to being a weed meme regular he is definitely a leading contender for chill awards   Our favorite phrase of his is “Smoking weed doesn’t make me a bad person, just like going to church doesn’t make you a good person.”

Margot Robbie

Robbie is an award actress with credits including I, Tonya, The Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad and more. The Australian vocal supporter of human rightswomen’s rightsgender equality and LGBT rights stands up for her beliefs.  While she hasn’t publicly said anything about cannabis, we know she loves tequila and a good time.   In 2016 she opened SNL with a beautiful marijuana flower dress that caught the audience’s attention.

Kate McKinnon

Kate McKinnon was a breakout star of SNL and continues to display her talents in movies and as a writer and as a singer. Her SNL skits have become parts of stoner lore and she has a wide and varied fan base. She does not smoke marijuana but dabbled while at college. She also is not a big drinker, but her comedic talents are intoxicating.

In the pink world of Barbie, everyone is calm, happy and living their best life…sounds like the reason legal recreational cannabis has become so popular.  As she would say (and consumers would agree) “Find the beauty in everything you do”.
