Leave it to MTV to capitalize on all things jail-related (word to “Weezy Watch”). In this interview back when Wiz was proclaimed their Hottest Breakthrough MC in the summer (why bring it out now? Oh, right…), he spoke about his affection for Mary Jane.
“I don’t say, ‘Yo, get up and do that.’ I said that’s what I do, and I tell you what I do while I’m doing it. I’m not trying to push drugs on anybody,” said Wiz, who calls his house “The Bakery.”
“I thought weed was bad for a minute,” he added. “When I was younger, I thought it was bad, but I got to a point where it worked for me. It don’t work for everybody else. People gotta stay free, people need jobs, people got parents that probably wouldn’t be with it, so don’t ruin your life trying to be like me. That’s my advice.”
But asked if he thinks marijuana should be legalized, Wiz told MTV News, “Definitely, legalize it. Please, everybody needs it. The world would be a better place.”
