Shawn Mendes Voices Support For Marijuana Legalization

Shawn Mendes once stated an opinion many celebrities had previously: he loves weed. But when Mendes announced his marijuana affection, he received a surprising backlash. A significant portion of fans were somewhere between apoplectic and troubled. “Please don’t go down the wrong path Shawn,” one fan tweeted.

I don’t regret to inform those fans that Mendes maintains his journey down the weed path. His support for the plant is consistent, as he revealed in a recent interview with Vice Canada. In a video titled “Random Questions with Shawn Mendes,” the songwriter voiced opinions on a range of truly random topics.

Of course, the interviewer asked Mendes about cannabis. “Have you invested in a weed company?” Mendes was asked.

“I haven’t, no,” he replied. “I have not, but in Canada it’s legal now, so that’s awesome.”

That wasn’t all. While Mendes was asked what animal he could take in a fight (a squirrel) and what weird piece of memorabilia he owns (“I have so many Harry Potter wands it’s ridiculous”), there were more weed questions in order. Did Mendes have a favorite type of strain, the interviewer asked.

“A favorite strain? I don’t, I don’t,” he said. “Like I really don’t know that much about weed.”
