2face Idibia On Drugs: ‘I have stopped smoking Marijuana’

Legendary singer 2face confesses to trying out marijuana and insists that he is off it now. The singer who jointly won the BET plaque with D’banj in a recent interview was quoted as saying he has smoked marijuana to get ‘ire’ [high]. His response to the question about drugs was: When it comes to drugs, I can say I drink Panadol sometimes when I have headache. Or I can take Vitamin C. Marijuana? Yes, I have tried it before. I tried it and I felt ire (high).
I don’t want to even start encouraging anybody or talking about that. But I am just being truthful. I have done it before. Cocaine, heroin? I have never taken tried those ones.Never, ever, ever.
I have never taken marijuana to go onstage. It was just for relaxation purpose. But like I said, I don’t even want to go there.
So, let’s leave that. I just knew marijuana wasn’t for me. So I stopped. Because it makes me feel I am in another world.I stopped using it a couple of years ago. I wouldn’t say it was difficult stopping it. It wasn’t too difficult.
It was just craziness that introduced me to marijuana. You know how youthful energy used to push one into things like that. In those days; I listened to songs like Rolling down the Street Smoking.
All those songs can influence, if you want to be influenced. It is not for me to advise musicians not to write or sing about drugs.
Then he added:
The thing is just to bring up your kids the right way. Not letting them fear, but let them see the truth, the reality and make their choices by themselves
