The Emmy-winning “Sopranos” star sauntered through The Farmacy, a highly frequented Venice weed dispensary that is reportedly known for being a haven for celebrity patrons. TMZ reports that Gandolfini only browsed and didn’t make any purchases, as the actor doesn’t have a medical marijuana card and therefore is not eligible to nab any Mary Jane.
A source told TMZ that Gandolfini and a buddy of his had never been inside a weed dispensary and just wanted to check out the sights.
Although Gandolfini didn’t actually light up, this is the latest in a string of pot-related headlines involving big-name celebrities. Photos of Justin Bieber smoking the reefer leaked shortly before Christmas and again in early January, sparking speculation as to whether the pop star was acting out in the wake of his breakup with Selena Gomez. Rihanna has seen one marijuana headline after the next, whether it’s posting a photo of the bud she received on Valentine’s Day or reportedly smoking a joint at a Grammy after-party. Even Olympic champions are joining the green party, with 18-time Gold medalist Michael Phelps caught smoking from a bong in 2009.
James Gandolfini got a taste of L.A. beach life yesterday … by moseying through a Venice pot shop.
The medical marijuana dispensary — The Farmacy — is almost as famous as Muscle Beach, and gets a lot more traffic. Tons of celebs are among the clientele.
A source close to James tells us … James and his buddy had never been inside a marijuana shop, so they cruised in. We’re told James doesn’t have a medical marijuana card, so weed was off-limits, but he spent time perusing the holistic aisles and left without buying anything.
He should check out that methadone clinic in Bev Hills. It’s fabulous!
