RAPPER Stormzy has revealed he’s stopped smoking weed – to improve his mental health.
The Big For Your Boots hitmaker admitted he’d given up the Class B drug and advised others to do the same. Reports the Sun Newspaper (UK)
“If you’ve got mental health problems, stop smoking weed,” said the 26-year-old star.
“It’s not good for your mental health.”
Stormzy made the revelation during an interview with south London charity Carney’s Community, an organisation which uses activities such as boxing to engage with disadvantaged young people, with the aim of reducing offending, re-offending and anti-social behaviour.
He went on: “I have suffered with mental health problems for the past few years.
“When I used to feel depressed, I would lock myself away and smoke weed and I would just get worse and worse and worse. It does not help your situation. It will f*** you up.
“It feels good for, like, 20 minutes and then after that… we all know, us weed smokers, we know how it goes.”
