'I Love Weed': Shawn Mendes Comes Out Of The Cannabis Closet

Shawn Mendes doesn’t want to broadcast his fondness for marijuana—but we will.

In a recent interview for a Rolling Stone cover story, the Canada-born pop sensation divulged that he was a regular cannabis consumer — albeit a low-key one.

“I love weed,” he said. “I wouldn’t tweet that—not yet, at least—but it’s really good for me. When I’m home, I’ll smoke and then play guitar for seven hours.”

While, really, there’s nothing holdin’ him back from going on the record about this newfound love of the plant, we can kind of understand that it doesn’t quite gel with the squeaky-clean image the 20-year-old star currently has in the media.

Still, what interests us most about this statement is the part where he says “not yet.” So…are we to assume that Mendes will be dropping some sultry radio hits about weed sometime down the line? Because we could rock with that.

Latest.

The city of Lawrence, Kansas, is looking to make it so that a marijuana possession fine costs less than a cup of coffee for first and second time offenders. The proposed $1 possession fine would replace their current $200 penalty, as well as a $63 court fee. Those charged under the current regulations also have to undergo a court evaluation, which comes with additional costs.

Can we see some ID please?
