Van Halen Member Claims Big Name Actor Uses Drug


On a recent episode of The New Roth Show, Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth discussed the reasons Joe Rogan uses cannabis. Cannabis, also known as marijuana among other names, is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis plant used for medical or recreational purposes. Alternative Nation transcribed Roth’s comments

Roth: I saw a great conversation with Joe Rogan, Joe and Ted Nugent. I think we were watching it together [Roth motions to his producer] and Ted who is reaching for ultimate somehow to the great outdoors or becoming part of, I understand that it’s the everywhere spirit. American Indian First Nation understands this. His ascendancy is based on purity. He’s not getting high, he’s not getting loaded, he’s one with, in a very primitive kind of a state. He’s actually hunting his own food – primitive state.   

Roth continues:

Roth: Joe Rogan is a man of the world, he’s international, he’s very, very modern. Rogan is using old-school techniques to expand, everything in his world is expanding. Look at the way mixed-martial arts [is expanding], just visually, just visually mixed-martial-arts has expanded in the last fifteen Summers. It’s a completely different experience watching it, it’s a completely different experience in-acting it and performing it. It’s the same thing in the way television in the way television and YouTube podcasting has expanded. So Rogan’s version as I kind of translated, he’s using cannabis to expand his perspectives. It helps Rogan to perceive or to concentrate or perhaps to meditate onto something like that.
