I dont smoke weed anymore. Ill leave it to the kids. Im 27 with a business to run and i need to be alert and focused with my mind strong. For those who still get it on, smoke one in my memory as your favorite lonely stoner.

This is not a joke. I know most of you wanna see me all drugged out and f*cked up and i know misery loves company, but im sorry those days are over. I had a good run, Amsterdam and all. Im happy being sober. Im happy being a new me. Giva f*ck who thinks of me different, you didnt care about me in the first place if you cant be proud and happy for me for growing and starting a new chapter. Im not your puppet or your tap dancing drug addict here to be your miserable muse, i always made music for me to help myself find understanding. I have finally learned from the words in my songs. I love who loves me and who really cares about me.

Learn from this, theres always light at the end of the tunnel. Hell does have an exit, and i found it. For those who are looking for a way out, i left the door open, and ill be waiting for whoever wants to grow with me. Peace and Love, Cudi

The Lonely Stoner didn't take too kindly to people thinking the post was a joke, so he fired back:

MTV speculates the decision is because of Kudi's current legal and substance abuse issues. He was arrested in both June and September 2010 in New York City with liquid cocaine. Maybe he's going the cold turkey on everything route? Meanwhile, potheads and stoners far and wide from across the country gathered in Denver, Colorado this past weekend for the 2011 High Times Medical C*nnabis Cup. Strangely, a weed-free, self-reformed Cudi was the headline performer on Saturday night. Sure looks like there's a lot of trees being blazed in the crowd. Deadspin, of all places, has a pretty fantastic recap of the festivities and below is a video of the show. Let's call it our 4:20 Joint of the Day.

Have a good story, song, or item of note about tokin' up? Send it along for consideration in future 4:20 CHRONICle posts to joepa [at] brobible [dot] com. Do me a favor and put “4:20 Chronicle” in the subject line.
