Film clip shows Marilyn Monroe smoking pot

A cinephile has unveiled another side of Marilyn Monroe on the Internet. A video of the iconic actress and her friends consuming what appears to be marijuana has been posted on the Web, reports NouvelObs. The silent home video surfaced a half century after it was shot. It dates back to 1958 or 1959, and was shot in a house in New Jersey. The creator of the video, who prefers to remain anonymous, sold the footage for $275 000 to collector Keya Morgan, who is currently preparing a documentary on Marilyn Monroe’s death. The collector claims to have never seen the actress as relaxed as she was in the video, and that the owner of the video confirmed that the star was indeed smoking weed that he’d brought to the house for his friends. Marilyn Monroe died overnight between August 4 and 5, 1962 from a drug overdose. The police quickly concluded it was a suicide, but many inconsistencies in the investigation have prompted speculation. ~Audrey Gélinas

    Wow. And that was from how many years ago? Like I don’t think anyone really cares…except maybe her fans…

    Wait I thought she and Elvis hooked up with Tupac and Biggie?

    This is Canada not the USA – no one here really really cares if you smoke pot or not! What anyone does in the privacy of their own home is their own beeswax.
    Must be a slow news day!

    Looked like a cigarette to me..unless it was the most perfectly rolled fattie! But she IS looking VERY relaxed.

    Yes, I agree, it looked exactly like a normal cigarette…and she didn’t even inhale!

    >>and she didnt even inhale!

    *in my best Michael Scott voice*

    Hahahaha, well Bill’s situation was a little different. It’s not “smoking” if you don’t inhale.
