You’re probably wondering: Does Adam Levine smoke weed? The Maroon 5 frontman and judge on “The Voice” seems like a pretty chill dude, but that doesn’t always equate to being a regular stoner. We decided to step in and find out whether or not Adam Levine is a fan of weed. He’s not the first celebrity we’ve investigated, and he certainly won’t be the last. You’re going to want to stick around for this one.
Who is Adam Levine?
First off, let’s do a little refresher on who exactly Adam Levine is. He was born and raised in L.A., and in 1994 he started the band Kara’s Flowers. The band eventually split up in 1997, but it was reformed in 2001 with a new guitarist and a new name: Maroon 5.
Levine and Maroon 5 garnered mainstream success in 2002 with their album “Songs about Jane.” The album took a while to gain full momentum, but by 2004 it was a smash hit. The band won their first Grammy award in 2005 for Best New Artist.
The band has recorded four more albums since “Jane:” “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long,” “Hands All Over,” “Overexposed,” and “V.” Currently, Levine also serves as a judge and a voice coach on the reality show “The Voice,” a position he’s served since the show’s inception in 2011.
Puff or Pass?
So does Adam Levine smoke weed? Well if you take a look at all the facts, there are numerous instances that suggest the singer does. One such instance was during an interview with Golf Digest back in 2014.
Levine is a big fan of golf, and was talking about how he wanted to open up his own golf store. Except, this wasn’t your regular old golf store. Levine stated he wanted to make some sort of “weed and gold” hybrid store.
During the interview, Levine spotted an opening at a local strip mall.
We should totally open a store. We would have weed, tacos, and some clothes, and some golf stuff. We’d call it Weed and Golf.
Well, that may not totally prove that Adam Levine smokes weed, but it’s a pretty tell tale sign. Frankly, the weed business is booming right now, and it’s not a bad idea to combine weed and golf. However, going off the cuff like Levine was in this interview, it sounds like he has weed on his mind at all times.
Anyways, that’s not the only evidence. Rewind back a year to 2013, and Levine was at the forefront of a petty legal dispute involving cannabis. Apparently, a then 41-year-old security guard decided to sue the entourages of Macy Gray, MC Ren, T.I., Future, Jamie Foxx and Adam Levine, because they were toking up behind stage. The guard cited a “hostile work environment” as her reasoning.
Allegedly, she wanted to stop them from smoking, but apparently, her boss stopped her from intervening. “It’s Adam Levine. You know from Maroon 5,” her boss reportedly said. “He can do whatever he wants. If he wants to come to the lobby and do a line of cocaine on the floor, it’s OK.”
Final Hit: Does Adam Levine Smoke Weed?
So it comes back to the question: Does Adam Levine smoke weed? Well we’re going to go with a big yes on this one. There’s some pretty concrete evidence that the singer does partake of the good stuff. It’s not uncommon for musicians to smoke a little ganja to get their creative juices flowing, and clearly Levine is no exception. Keep on tokin’ Adam. We’re all rooting for you.
