Dave Grohl: Why I Stopped Smoking Weed
Dave Grohl shamelessly admits he fell victim to one of the main stereotypes associated with marijuana users. But that doesn’t mean that you will, too!
The lead singer of the Foo Fighters confesses that he attributes letting go of the herb to The Kardashians and their TV show. Grohl admits defeat to how easy it is to smoke weed and get addicted to terrible television shows. The funny part is that Grohl started using marijuana for medicinal purposes after not smoking for a while, but he fell into the trap of reality TV.
The Kardashians do not cure insomnia
Dave Grohl stopped using marijuana for the first time in his 20s, at which point he says he stopped experimenting with mind-altering substances. However, after experiencing insomnia for some time he decided to make the switch back to natural medicine and started using marijuana. But what he found is quite surprising for a rock band singer. He became addicted to reality TV. More specifically… The Kardashians.
So it seems marijuana may have lead Grohl a little bit astray. Watching the Kardashians is definitely not a productive way to spend time not sleeping, in which case insomnia is better. So, unfortunately, marijuana doesn’t work for Dave Grohl, but that doesn’t mean it’s the demise of everyone, right?
Marijuana does not give you television addictions!
Well, this is just another addition to the stereotype of marijuana users. It’s not surprising, seeing as Grohl lumps marijuana in the same category as drugs when he says “I stopped doing drugs when I was about 20 years old. But I recently thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to start smoking pot again to cure insomnia.’” Two things definitely apply here, and one is that marijuana is not a drug. The second is that marijuana does not give you addictions to the Kardashians.
But, nonetheless, it’s unfortunate for Dave Grohl that marijuana didn’t take him on her side. Many of us are doing a whole lot of our daily tasks with the company of Mary Jane, and all we can say is that it’s a shame that Dave Grohl can’t do the same. Having said that, marijuana is a very effective medicine for insomnia, and according to some studies, could even assist treatment for addictions themselves!
