The former boy bander has experimented with psychedelics. But does he smoke weed?
Harry Styles, former One Direction band member, Vogue model and Calm App narrator, has managed to pave his own way over the last couple of years. After the band’s split, Styles took the opportunity to make music that was different from his previous work and that made him stand out as a talented singer and performer. But does Harry Styles smoke weed?
Being in a boy band is much like being a Disney star. These people have to keep track of their public behaviors, at least until their contracts are over.

In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Styles discussed a strange encounter that somehow involved weed when some guys tried to rob him. “I cross the street and they cross the street, and I think, ‘For f—’s sake, I’m going to get robbed,’” he said. “The guys are like, ‘Can we talk to you for a minute?’ There’s nobody around and my heart’s pounding. He’s like, ‘Do you smoke weed? Do you want weed?” Styles explained that he told them no and that he managed to run away from them after giving the men his money.
When discussing his experience with One Direction, Styles explained that he didn’t want to be the one who ruined things and misbehave. “When I was in the band, it was like, to me, it felt like it was so much bigger than any of us that I kind of felt like, ‘I’m not going to be the one who f–ks it up,’” he said.

Then, when speaking about making his solo record, he said: “I was with my friends and we were in Malibu … I felt so safe. It was like, ‘I want to take some mushrooms? I’m going to take some — like now is the time to have fun.”
While there’s no direct mention of Styles smoking weed, if he’s tried mushrooms then it’s very likely he’s also tried a joint. We’re marking him down as a yes.
