The HIGH TIMES Interview: Ludacris

Grammy Award–winning Christopher Bridges, a.k.a. Ludacris, cut his teeth in the music industry as an influential “Dirty South” rapper. Yet in his remarkable nearly 20-year-long career, Ludacris has achieved mainstream success as both a musician and an actor, appearing in hit movies like Crash, Hustle & Flow, and the Fast and the Furious series. Given that he’s an avid smoker—as evidenced by his hazy “Blueberry Yum Yum” video from the album The Red Light District—HIGH TIMES couldn’t wait to get Ludacris to perform at a Cannabis Cup. Fortunately, the Atlanta-based artist was able to join us in Las Vegas, where we caught up with him just before show time.

You perform in Amsterdam. What do you think of the cannabis scene there?

Amsterdam no longer has the best weed in the world. I’m going to have to give that to Los Angeles, California … in the world.

We have written about people doing extraordinary things while tripping on acid and about LSD helping with certain disorders, but frankly, baseball great Dock Ellis takes the cake.

Forty-seven years ago this week, one of the most important moments in baseball history was made when the Pittsburgh Pirates’ pitcher took to the mound and pitched a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres—while tripping on acid.

NFL Superstar Eben Britton Talks Cannabis Cures for Chronic Pain

I’ve always been a bit intimidated by professional athletes.

Not necessarily because they’re physically superior to me in every way, but because they’re so well-disciplined.

Having roomed with a professional fighter in my early 20s, I witnessed first-hand the discipline it takes to compete at a level that few mortals could ever know. The physical demands, the mental dexterity, the personal sacrifices: It’s far more than what most people can handle. And it’s why so few ever make it to the top.

Green Point Creative’s latest PSA in the agency’s on-going campaign to change discriminatory drug enforcement policies? A re-creation of the classic “This Is Your Brain” ad from 1998 featuring actress Rachael Leigh Cook reprising her role as the pan-wielding Gen X’er.

“Once we had the script locked and the project in motion, we decided to approach Rachael Leigh Cook to see if she would be willing to recreate her role for this new message,” he continued. “A call was set up to discuss the idea with her, and after Rachael had time to consider the issue, she came aboard.
