Watch Tyler Perry Teach Seth Myers About Using Marijuana As Sleep Aid

Tyler Perry recently stopped by “Late Night with Seth Myers” to promote his upcoming movie with Taraji P. Henson called Tyler Perry’s Acrimony, where he spilled some details from the film and insights into working with the typically fierce Henson. But Perry also divulged about his short-lived experiences with marijuana and how it will inspire his next movie.

As you might expect from someone as prolific as Perry, his mind is always running, so he has trouble sleeping at night. To assist with the issue, he admitted to a friend he might drink some vodka for a sleepy-time nightcap. The friend then suggested cannabis and bought Perry a pink lemonade “weed drink,” as he called it.

Perry’s experience eventually turned gnarly, as he consumed too much before bed.

“I’m sitting there and my legs started growing,” Perry said. “I couldn’t open my mouth, and I was wondering if it was still there. The [my friend] facetimed me and I was hiding behind the camera because I didn’t want her to see me.

“I said to God, ‘If you get me out of this, I will never do this again in my life.’”

For fans of Perry and his Madea character, he told Seth Myers the experience would definitely spill into his films. Cannabis, of course, remains a helpful sleep aid if used properly. To learn more about marijuana’s potential to combat insomnia, read this.
