Pete Davidson: Please Stop Sending Marijuana To My Mom’s House

Pete Davidson said he was quitting drugs, but the internet didn’t listen.

What we say on the internet impacts what happens in real life, although not always in ways we might predict. Comedian Pete Davidson learned this lesson last week when he announced in an Instagram video he was quitting drugs. Three hours later, strangers showed up to his mom’s house with free marijuana.

Davidson relayed the story on “The Tonight Show” while promoting his upcoming movie, The King of Staten Island. Loosely based on Davidson’s life (he co-wrote the movie), the movie follows 20-something Tyler as he attempts to overcome a potent, and potently funny, case of arrested development. Due to quarantine lockdown, Davidson and director Judd Apatow have used social media to promote the movie, which kicked off the unexpected cannabis delivery.

“Me and Judd released this video to try and get it out there that the movie’s coming out. I mentioned that I wasn’t doing drugs, that I was trying not to,” Davidson told host Jimmy Fallon.

“And then, literally three hours later, a lady rang my doorbell with a full bag of weed and gave it to my mom and said, ‘I heard your son needs this.'”

Davidson added that the driver came from Bayonne, New Jersey — about a 20-30 minute drive, give or take. Apatow followed up on IGTV what we all wanted to know: what happened to the drugs left at Davidson’s door? Though he estimated it was about a couple weeks worth of marijuana, Davidson didn’t keep it.

“I gave ’em to my friend Jay,” he said, then added, “I haven’t heard from him since. It’s been about four days.”

The King of Staten Island will be available on demand June 12.
