Method Man Explains Why He Wants To Distance Himself From Weed [Video]

Posted on October 16, 2011

"I don’t want that every time you hear Method Man's name you associate it with getting high or marijuana because there’s so much more to me than that. I’m not actually distancing myself from my marijuana culture people but it’s not in the forefront anymore, Method tells VIBE. "I got kids to raise, man. Plus it was never really that bad. It gets comes to a point where no matter where you go they’re always thinking you’re high. And I’m not always high. I mean right now I’m sober as a priest."

"Wiz is going way out there with it. I applaud that cat big time too because he’s doing it his way and it’s his time now. Let him ride," says Method Man. "It’s always going to be there whether it’s Wiz or Method Man or Redman, Big K.R.I.T. whoever. It’s always just going to be there. It’s recreational, baby. Do you know how many closeted weed smokers there are? They’re going to be coming out of the closet like gay men. I’m serious. Then we’re going to have these marches like the gay community did."

"We’re going to have these marches and we’re going to go out and get rights. Then they’re going to let weed heads get married together and all that crap. I’m telling you man. Modest society, the way the world is going right now, it’s a beautiful thing because there’s way more tolerance and there’s way more open-minded people out there. So that’s a beautiful thing when you’re an artist, you can always change and people have an open mind about things. I love the way the world is changing, right now. There’s a lot of bad things but I like to count the good things."
