Dear Stephen King…

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

In honor of 4/20 I googled “celebrity potheads” with the plan of writing fan mail to someone like Cheech or Snoop or Charlize Theron (because remember THIS? an apple a day…). Back to my story. Google celeb potheads, start scrolling down the list, stop in my tracks as I see this pic of reported pothead Stephen King:

Those stark white socks… the baby barf green velour couch… the chair that I’m 100% sure my grandma also owned… this pic is less “I’m a pothead” and more “I’m a registered sex offender and hoard cats in my basement”. But you know what they say, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, and you can’t judge the smoking habits of a world-famous author by his footwear (or something like that). Stephen King has been one of the most outspoken proponents for the legalization of marijuana saying “I think that marijuana should not only be legal, I think it should be a cottage industry”.  He went on to say “… much like the cottage industry I’ve created for stark white athletic socks which I’ll be selling at book signings, on my website and at Hemp Fests nationwide so you too can have blindingly white socks”.
