In an interview with Esquire, rapper Wiz Khalifa explained that he always rolled papers without a filter … until he traveled to his neighbors to the north.
“That’s where I learned to roll with the crutch,” he told Esquire. “I don’t know exactly the real reason they used filters. It was like, ‘You have to roll every joint with a filter.’”
But then again, he also conceded that sometimes it’s nice to roll up without a filter in order to taste the herb. So, it’s up to you!

Rapper, TV star, and former chef Action Bronson is a proponent of cooking after getting a little high. As for what exactly you should be cooking? “The weed tells you what to do,” he told BroBible.
Whether it’s a rack of ribs or a slice of pizza, the inspiration will come to you in the moment, according to Bronson. If you’re trying to eat healthy like him though, raw almonds are the snack of choice for when you get the munchies — they might make your mouth dry, but at least they won’t ride up the calorie count.

The question of how to ingest cannabis is a very personal one and one that can evolve over time as preferences change and new products come onto the market. For Willie Nelson, though he is a notorious smoker, he decided to make the change to a vaporizer.
The famed artist told Uncut Magazine: “I enjoy smoking. But I use a vaporizer these days; they’re better for your voice and lungs. There’s no smoke and heat on it. Even though marijuana smoke is not as bad as cigarette smoke, any time you put any kind of smoke in your lungs it takes a toll of some kind.”
