There hasn’t been much word from him as to why he decide to stop but at the Rites of Spring show on Saturday he took some time to explain things before he performed the appropriately titled “Marijuana” from MOTM 2.

“You know how some people can take a smoke and they’re good, they do it for recreational purposes, shit like that. I was the motherfucker who was doing that shit all the time, recreationally, every day, wake up, needed it, all those things.
