Sammy Hagar has talked about getting into the weed business on an Instagram live chat with Washington Post reporter Geoff Edgers.
The Red Rocker, Sammy Hagar, rose to fame in the 1970s with the hard rock band Montrose. In 1985, he replaced David Lee Roth as the lead singer of Van Halen but left the band in 1996 only to rejoin them between 2003 and 2005. Hagar also embarked on successful solo projects, including his hit ‘I Can’t Drive 55.’ He is currently the lead singer of Chickenfoot, and Sammy Hagar And The Circle.
Apart from his successful career in the music industry, Sammy Hagar is also an entrepreneur. As you may know, he founded the brand Cabo Wabo Tequila and restaurant chain along with his Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum.
Speaking to Washington Post reporter Geoff Edgers, Sammy Hagar revealed whether he is planning to get into the marijuana business. He said that everyone is asking him to do it, as it affects his productivity and sociability. Hagar then claimed getting into the marijuana business would be like selling something he doesn’t enjoy.
Sammy Hagar told Geoff Edgers on an Instagram live that:
“Everyone is asking me to do it. You see, I don’t smoke weed cause I don’t do good on it. You know, I’m one of those guys who says ‘I smoke weed and I’m stupid, I gotta go high.’ When I smoke weed, I don’t get sociable, I get the opposite. So, I don’t do things that don’t make me function well.
Everyone is asking me to get into the weed business and the marijuana business. And I don’t wanna do it, because I don’t wanna smoke it. I mean, that would be like me getting into the milk business. I don’t drink milk. I eat ice cream, but I don’t drink milk. So it would be like trying to sell something I don’t do. I don’t do that.”
In the same interview, Hagar also revealed that he is a responsible drinker and dislikes getting drunk to the point of losing control. So, it appears that marijuana is not Hagar’s thing.
