Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s most prominent stars, successful as both an actor and singer. Does the father of three ever turn to marijuana to help him relax?
Will Smith is an accomplished TV, film and music icon. But many of us still flash back to the 90s when he was simply known as the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. The sitcom launched his career, and he’s managed to stay relevant since, working with a string of famous directors in numerous blockbusters which earned him Grammy, Golden Globe and Oscar nods.
Smith just announced on his Instagram that there will be a Fresh Prince of Bel Air reunion, featuring the original cast (including OG Aunt Viv!!), which is expected to air on HBO Max sometime around Thanksgiving.
We know Smith loves his old castmates, but does he also love a little bit of the kush?
Unlike his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, Will is a pretty private person, rarely allowing his personal life to leak to the public. With the release of Jada’s show, Red Table Talk, their family has opened themselves up for more controversy over the years. Recent episodes have touched upon various personal issues, such as the couple’s rocky relationship, Jada’s affair with August Alsina, and more.
While Will hasn’t directly addressed marijuana on the show, in an episode that aired last year, the family discussed their experiences with alcohol, explaining that they’ve lowered their intake since Jada’s family has a history of alcohol abuse.
When the topic of cannabis was broached, they all paused awkwardly until the couple’s daughter, Willow, revealed: “Everyone knows we’re 420 friendly, let’s be real.”
While Will hasn’t spoken openly about marijuana, his kids have, making us believe that he must have a pretty relaxed attitude towards the subject. Willow has been photographed with weed socks and has spoken about her drug use, explaining that for a while, it was something she did to stave off boredom.
While Will is most likely not a stoner, we can safely assume that he’s okay with the moderate use and legalization of cannabis. What would Aunt Viv say??
