CANNABIS CULTURE – JT loves his MJ: Teenie-pop sensation turned rising Hollywood star Justin Timberlake says he is “absolutely” a pot smoker, and that “some people are just better high.”
In a recent interview with Playboy, the former ‘N Sync frontman couldn’t have been more upfront:
PLAYBOY: You’ve talked openly about using drugs, smoking marijuana. Are you still a pot smoker?
PLAYBOY: Is it a creativity booster? I read you were stoned for much of the time you made Justified.
TIMBERLAKE: The only thing pot does for me is it gets me to stop thinking. Sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off. Some people are just better high.
It’s an interesting interview, and JT seems like a pretty cool guy. Hollywood seems to think so too: JT is playing starring roles in the upcoming Bad Teacher, Friends with Benefits and other films.
This isn’t the first time JT has talked about his herb-smoking habits. I thought he looked baked on that episode of Punk’d!
I was starting to wonder if Timberlake had been hot-boxing the studio with the boys from The Lonely Island after seeing these hilarious collabo music videos from Saturday Night Live. I’ve been getting high and watching these for a month:
Dick in a Box
Motherlover (feat. Justin Timberlake)
3-Way (The Golden Rule) (feat. Justin Timberlake & Lady Gaga)
The guys from The Lonely Island – Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – feature Snoop Dogg on the title track of their new album, Turtleneck and Chain, and just told MTV what they learned while hangin with the Doggfather:
“Weird thing about Snoop, we found out: Snoop doesn’t smoke weed,” Taccone said.
“Yeah, he doesn’t smoke weed,” Samberg picked up. “He smokes weeeeeeeed. He smokes weeeeeeeed. He does not smoke weed.”
