Jeezy Says He Stopped Smoking Weed for Ten Years After a Bad Experience Hospitalized Him

In a preview of his appearance on the Dope as Usual podcast, Jeezy recalled an experience that made him avoid smoking weed for a decade.

“So what we would do when we cut up the rocks is we would put them in a bag and we’d call it shake, it would be like the crumbs,” Jeezy explained, after which he suggested a woman he knew sprinkled crack cocaine into some weed. “She was like, ‘Yo, cuz. Let me get the crumbs.’ I’m like, ‘Alright, cool, whatever.’ So I give her the crumbs. We hanging out that night and I’m like, ‘Man, I want some weed.’ And she says, ‘Shit, your cuz got some!’ So I called her, I was like, ‘Yo let me get some weed.’”

After he got the weed from her, he was “riding around” and “listening to 2Pac,” when he started to feel the “most paranoid” he’s ever been. “I’m listening and the music sounds like it’s chasing me,” he laughed. “I think I’m gonna die.”

Not long after, he had to be hospitalized because of the experience. “I’m sitting there and when they got me back around I said, ‘Yo, do you think she put those crumbs in the weed to make it more potent?’” he continued. “I still didn’t get the truth out of her, but I stopped smoking for like 10 years after that. … I was more afraid ’cause a lot of my friends, we started off hustling and a few of ’em started smoking crack and by this time I’m knee deep in it.”
