“They try to make it seem like if you smoke weed you’ll just go mad in Nigeria. Everybody smokes it,it’s just a topic no one wants to talk about,”

“No one wants to talk about it; everybody is cool. Nobody wants to make it a thing to advocate for legalization of weed,” 

He added that he comes to Los Angeles to have a taste of the weed they serve in the as it is one of the states that has legalised marijuana and they offer one of the best joints you can get in America.
