Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell was recently interviewed on the Jason Ellis Show. Farrell discussed how he still smokes weed, and how his dog recently stole the drug and got high.
“You dangle a carrot in front of yourself, you make a commitment, something that you think you can achieve. Then you say, well I’d love to get loaded today, except I’m not going to look that good if I show up then. So I kind of think in the future, and to meet my commitment, and that’s how I kind of shaved off all those hours. I mean I still get high, but not as much as I used to.”
He added, “We’re just talking high man. High is high. We’ll include weed high.”
He later said, “I had to bring my dog to the vet two days ago. He got a hold of a roach, you ever see a dog that’s high on weed? Me neither, I didn’t know what the hell was wrong with my dog. He was wobbling, and his back didn’t match up to his front. He was walking and he couldn’t get his hind legs to walk with his front legs.”
“Good weed. This is a hybrid of Sativa and Indica, hybrid.”
“So a friend comes over unexpectedly two mornings ago. I asked him if he wanted to smoke a joint, I’d just rolled a good one. So we smoke it, and he says, ‘Well I’ve got to get to work.’ He gets up quickly, and I left the roach on the table outside, the backyard. I come back, and I couldn’t find it. I’m real good about my roaches, I couldn’t find this fuckin’ roach.
Anyway, later on that afternoon I take my dog for a walk, for the first time in his life I put the collar on him. I’m trying to pull this dog out of this crate, and he won’t go. So I’m yanking him by the neck like I’m hanging him. He’s like, ‘Fuck no, I’m not going!’ I thought this is really weird, he doesn’t like being walked now. I said I’ll make it up to him, when he gets out there I’m going to give him a treat. So he’s trying to walk, his back is banging to the wall, and he’s looking at me real weird. I said to my wife, ‘Something’s wrong, I think the Seymour the neighbor poisoned him because he’s barking.’
So we took him to the vet right away, and the vet goes, ‘Okay. Do you have rat poison?’ I go, ‘No, no. But our neighbor Seymour, he hates our dogs. He’s banging pots to try to make him bark and everything, I catch this guy.’ So anyways she goes, ‘Any chance he could have been engaged in marijuana?’ I go, ‘Oh! That’s what it was.'”
