Kevin Durant explains why he smokes weed in an interview on Netflix

Brooklyn Nets player Kevin Durant opened up about his marijuana use in an interview with David Letterman on Netflix. Part of the new season of My Guest Needs No Introduction, the interview will be available on May 20.

Leading up to the interview, Durant talked about his cooperation with Weedmaps, an app that helps users locate marijuana stores in their neighborhood. According to him, the goal of the partnership is to de-stigmatize marijuana use among athletes.

Durant then revealed that he first started using marijuana when he was 22 years old. Since the NBA no longer conducts random drug testing but nevertheless prohibits the use of marijuana, his statements have made headlines.

When asked why he smokes pot, Slim Reaper likened the experience to sipping a glass of wine. During his interview with Letterman, he admitted that he was really stoned at the time.

“For me, it takes the distractions out of your brain a bit. Installs you. It’s like having a glass of wine,” Durant said. “I’m actually stoned right now.”

For the past few years, Durant has been a strong supporter of medical marijuana. When it comes to painkillers, he sees cannabis as a safer, non-addictive option.

Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Ryan Reynolds and Will Smith will all appear in the upcoming season of My Guest Needs No Introduction. Letterman has previously interviewed Barack Obama, Dave Chappell, and Kim Kardashian in previous seasons, among others.
