Week in Weed: Paying our respects to David Bowie, Alan Rickman & Lemmy

Let's do this: 15 of the week's best weed-inspired Instagrams

Welcome to the Week in Weed. As usual, we have a bevy of beautiful bud shots. But this new year (and the very end of 2015) has seen the death of several famous faces who have, in one way or another, been intertwined with the world of cannabis. So first, we humbly pay our respects.

We want to see your weed photos: To submit your Instagram weed pics to the mix, make sure your photos are public and tag @cannabistcurator or use #WeekInWeed. We are not liable if you get in trouble at work because you’re posting weed pictures online. So post responsibly, friends, and we’ll see you again soon.

1. David Bowie’s mugshot for marijuana possession. (And here’s how it happened.)


2. Lemmy once said, ” I don’t see anything wrong with smoking a bit of dope, as it has been proven to be fucking harmless. They are always tossing out the dangers of marijuana on TV, it’s ridiculous.”


3.”Wands up” for Alan Rickman (Metatron in Kevin Smith’s “Dogma”) from two top stoners.


4. And “good mernin” to you too!

Good mernin' 🍁
