New Stock Photos Normalize Recreational Cannabis

In the past, those searching for images to accompany marijuana-related articles have had a hard time finding ones that depict the positive and productive world many adult cannabis smokers occupy. However, thanks to a new release by advocacy group, The Drug Alliance, there are now at least 64 new photos that show adult recreational stoners for who they really are: functional, responsible people, who enjoying cannabis throughout the day.




From images of a group of middle-aged friends sharing a bong over a board game and a couple smoking a pipe in bed to a woman injecting marijuana tincture and eating edibles at a BBQ, these images show the real-world (if somewhat mundane) side of enjoying weed.

The Drug Policy Alliance hopes these images will help change the way others perceive marijuana use in the 21st century.
