During DFW Norml’s recent backstage chat with Waka Flocka Flame, the Atlanta hip hop artist and animal rights advocate confirmed that you can have too much of a good thing. Flame warns fans about the ass-kicking potential of what he calls “the edibles,” or ingestible cannabis products like brownies, candy, and cookies. One brownie laid out the veteran herb enthusiast for, like, two days. “Man, I was high for no reason,” laughs Flame about his marathon cloud ride. “I woke up the next morning and thought, ‘How the f**k am I still high?'”
While on tour supporting his 2012 album Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family, the artist doesn’t have to search too hard for supplies. Sorta like Elvis used to get pelted with panties and hotel room keys when he performed, fans throw blunts and half ounces onstage during his shows. But again, Flame advises moderation and common sense, especially to fans still living under cannabis prohibition in 48 of the fifty states. “People shouldn’t keep their marijuana use a secret,” he said, but “there are certain occasions when you don’t want to walk in smelling like a pound.” A Waka Flocka Flame show is not one of those occasions, by the way.
