Does Wiz Khalifa Smoke Weed?

Does Wiz Khalifa smoke weed? So, how long have you been living under a rock, bro?

So you want to know: does Wiz Khalifa smoke weed? The international hip-hop superstar might spin a good rap about smoking green, but does he practice what he preaches? If you’re looking for a definitive answer, you’ve come to the right place. Read below to find out if Wiz runs the ultimate bake sale.

Who is Wiz Khalifa?

This Pittsburgh rapper (born Cameron Jibril Thomaz) first rose to fame with his hit single “Black and Yellow,” an homage to his car and to the sports colors of his hometown, from his third studio album Rolling Papers. His albums, including seminal tracks like “Work Hard, Play Hard” and “We Dem Boyz,” have racked up enough nominations and wins for Grammys, BETs, AMAs, and Golden Globes to fill up an entire warehouse. His associated acts include rap legend Snoop Dog, his protege Mac Miller, and his own outfit Taylor Gang, named after his high school alma mater Taylor Allderdice High School.

In terms of recent cannabis-related news, Wiz also once got into a social media feud with fellow rapper Kanye West in January 2016 over a tweet that was literally a one-line weed review.

West, who is married to television personality Kim Kardashian, thought the “KK” in Khalifa’s tweet stood for his wife’s initials—not a strain of weed. After Ye released a barrage of expletive-laden deletes directed at the rapper, Wiz was quick to correct his assumption. West subsequently apologized.

(What is the happy medium between embarrassed and owned? This. This is the happy medium.)

Does Wiz Khalifa Smoke Weed?

But saying and doing are two entirely different things. So does Wiz Khalifa smoke weed?

In the case of Wiz, the question might not be if the rapper smokes weed, but how much. It’s more or less common knowledge that Khalifa claims to smoke up to 80 joints a day. (Technically, this is possible if you build up a high enough tolerance; it’s also pretty much impossible to overdose from weed.) The rapper has said as much himself in interviews. As he told the press via a clip posted to his YouTube account as early as 2011, “I might spend, like, ten grand on weed a month, easy.”

“Smoke as much weed as possible,” he urged viewers with a smile and a twinkle in his eye. (Seriously.)

“Don’t drink and drive,” he cautioned, advocating weed use instead of alcohol abuse, “but get fucked up…this is a Wizzle Service Announcement. Get fucked up…but don’t get fucked up. Does that make sense? Put it together.”

Wiz is also a cannabis entrepreneur: he has his hand in everything, from a line of cannabis-infused beer to a weed-themed mobile game. I mean, the man has an actual hybrid strain named after him that he cultivated himself. If that doesn’t attest to his everlasting affinity for the ganj, then we don’t know what does.

And, of course, don’t forget his track “Weed Farm”:
