Louis Armstrong in 1953

Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901– July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana who, according to Cannabis Culture, said: "It really puzzles me to see marijuana connected with narcotics dope and all of that stuff. It is a thousand times better than whiskey. It is an assistant and a friend."[1]

It is believed Armstrong started smoking cannabis in the mid-1920s, and he did so for the rest of his life, including before recordings and performances.[2]
