Cannabis has been used in cartoons for decades, often as a way to depict characters as stoners or as a source of comic relief. More recently, however, marijuana use has become more mainstream, and cartoon characters are increasingly being shown smoking weed in a positive light.
There are a number of reasons why cannabis use is becoming more commonplace in cartoons. For one, the plant is now legal in many states across the country, so it stands to reason that its portrayal in popular culture would reflect this change. Additionally, marijuana is increasingly being seen as a harmless recreational drug, rather than an illegal substance with harmful effects.
This shift in public perception has also played a role in the normalization of cannabis use in cartoons. Which now leads us to seven different times marijuana has been seen (or intended to be seen) in popular cartoon shows on television.
