Are you ready for a confession? I’m whacked out on NyQuil so my inhibitions are non-existent today. I’ve never smoked pot — I’m so Natalie Portman. I mean, I went to a party once, definitely drank too much Southern Comfort — I was in my “I tailgate at Grateful Dead concerts” phase — and a lot of people were smoking pot around me. I thought that maybe I had a contact high, but I also may have just been hungry. Anyway, my point is this: I’m not really educated when it comes to drugs. So when this 50-year-old home video surfaced of Marilyn Monroe supposedly smoking a joint, I just assumed that was the case.
I watched the clip and I’m here to tell you that no matter how the media wants to report this, there is no evidence that Marilyn is actually smoking pot. She could easily be smoking a hand-rolled cigarette; they were popular in the fifties. Anyway, take a look for yourself. Is MM looking a bit too happy?
