Kevin Smith Credits Weed For Keeping His Spirits High After Life-Threatening Heart Attack

Stoner comedy director Kevin Smith was at death's door just two months ago, but he was surprisingly upbeat last week while discussing the 100 percent artery blockage that nearly claimed his life. Although admittedly terrified by the experience, he explained that weed has kept his spirits high after the ordeal.

"I'll be honest with you kids, I'm a wake-and-baker," he told Savannah Guthrie and Craig Melvin of the 'Today' show. "I'm feeling fantastic. I've been up since 5 AM and I'm ready to embrace the day."

He also explained how he's dropped 32 pounds since then (and plans to drop another 43) thanks to a special diet. Check it out in the clip above.
