Actress Kristen Bell Says, 'Weed Rules'

It shouldn't come as big surprise that actress Kristen Bell is a marijuiana enthusiast. She starred in Reefer Madness: The Musical in 2001.

Bell recently told Marc Maron on his WTF podcast:

“I like my vape pen quite a bit. Weed rules. Weed is my drug of choice, for sure.”

What complicates matters is her husband, actor Dax Shepard, has been sober for the last 14 years. “He likes drugs and alcohol,” Bell said. “He’s just aware that he lost his privilege with them because he can’t handle it. His brain does not have the chemistry to handle it.”

Bell likes to vape "once a week if I’m exhausted and we’re about to sit down and watch 60 Minutes. Why not?”

She played Mary Lane in the original theatrical production of Reefer Madness: The Musical, which opened off-Broadway in 2001, and in 2005 appeared in the TV version on Showtime. 

Reefer Madness: The Musical is a terrific sendup of the original 1936 exploitation flick. It also stars Colin and Neve Campbell and was directed by Andy Fickman. Watch Bell and Colin Campbell sing "Mary Jane/Mary Lane" below.

Bell's appeared in such films as Finding Sarah Marshall, Veronica Mars and Bad Moms.
