Recently, HIGH TIMES sat down with Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson to discuss his use of medical marijuana for Crohn’s disease.

Davidson is an outspoken advocate of the medicinal use of cannabis and believes the New York State medical marijuana program is inadequate and difficult to navigate. He takes offense to those who wish to keep healing pot hard to procure and illegal, saying, “I wouldn’t be able to perform on SNL if I couldn’t smoke weed!” 

Pete also believes that cannabis should be legal beyond just medical purposes. He’s a proud and productive pot person who’s even won the respect of Lorne Michaels.  

“Pete’s really focused for someone who mostly talks about how much pot he smokes,” Michaels told the New York Times. 

Season 42 of Saturday Night Live premiers on NBC October 1st at 11:30 p.m. EST, and Pete’s first hour-long stand-up special “SMD” airs on Comedy Central October 29th at 11:00 p.m. EST.
