Does Anthony Bourdain Smoke Weed?

Famous chef Anthony Bourdain first became known for his 2000 book “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly” where he reveals his professional story and a behind-the-scenes look at restaurant kitchens. Bourdain also details about some of his personal flaws and weaknesses, including his drug use. Then, after the success of his book, he started his first travel food show, “A Cook’s Tour”, where he traveled the world learning about different cuisines. Two years after that, he started “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations”, where he also traveled around the world tasting different cuisines. After nine seasons eating and traveling the world, he moved on to “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown”, another docuseries where he visits different countries to delve into their political issues, food, and culture.

During his time traveling the world exploring new foods and places, Bourdain visited many marijuana-friendly places. Although he can’t admit to smoking for legal reasons according to network standards, he certainly alludes to it, “What makes this pizza happy so happy? Let's just say there's a powerful herbal component to this pizza...It's the pizza that makes you insane in the membrane." We can only assume that the herbal component is in fact marijuana, but we’re almost certain as Bourdain has admitted to enjoying smoking marijuana himself. “Chefs are in the pleasure business, and it's important to understand your subject. If you know what it's like to be stoned and hungry at one o'clock in the morning, it's helpful when you're trying to create a menu for people who are stoned and hungry at one o'clock in the fucking morning." If anything, he can just say he was smoking for “research”. But if you ask him how he likes to smoke his weed he’ll admit that he likes joints, “I will tell you with authority that the perfect delivery system for marijuana, particularly good marijuana, is a joint. A classic joint. I prefer two papers, you know Purists will say one paper, two papers burns more evenly. I like them rolled like a non-filtered Lucky Strike.”
