Ten TV Show Characters Who Were Obviously Stoners
It still blows my mind when I hear the word "shit" on basic cable. It wasn't that long ago that the television censors were Puritanical. There was no cursing, no nudity (partial or otherwise), and there was no recreational drug use. If marijuana ever showed up, it was in an extra special episode that warned of the dangers of the devil's weed and ended with a public service announcement from Nancy Reagan or Kirk Cameron about how you should just say no.

9. Bo and Luke Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard
Boss Hogg wasn't chasing after the Duke cousins for the hell of it. Their Uncle Jesse promised the government they would stop transporting moonshine, but he didn't say nothing about weed. There's a reason these boys were always smiling. One of their customers was probably Rosco.
