Why Toni Braxton Won't Smoke Weed Anymore

Toni Braxton topped the charts in 1996 with the hit 'You're Making Me High.' But in 2018, that's pretty much the last thing she wants to do. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Braxton revealed that she's smoked weed in the past but won't have another puff anytime soon.

“I tried marijuana once and got really paranoid,” Braxton said in the interview.

The experience wasn't all bad though. She said it acted like the Rosetta Stone for her, making her believe she could understand Chinese.

“That part of it was quite exciting,” she told The Guardian.

And it also inspired that hit from '96.

"A week before [writing the song with Babyface and Bryce Wilson], I was introduced to marijuana, and I got high for the first time and so I added that in the song," Braxton revealed in 2012. "In the bridge, I’m singing, ‘I want to feel your heart and soul inside of me/Let’s make a deal you roll, I lick/And we can go flying into ecstasy’ – I was talking about [rolling and smoking a joint]."


Ever since recreational cannabis was legalized for adult consumption across Canada in mid-October the industry has been struggling to meet demand. And that's not going to change anytime soon, according to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. In a recent interview, Trudeau admitted that the chronic cannabis supply shortages have been the biggest challenge the newly legalized industry has been facing.
