Marijuana addiction is a real thing and rapper Lil Scrappy is living it. The Atlanta rapper checked into a local rehab facility for marijuana addiction this week, after failing a court-ordered drug test.
Scrappy has been having problems with urine drug tests as of late. In April, he was jailed after refusing to resubmit a urine test, after the first was received cold and believed to be tampered with. It eventually led to his arrest for probation violation. When he retook the urine test it came back positive, leading to his mandatory 30-day rehab sentence.
The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star says he’s been smoking weed since he was 12, and couldn’t stay clean in prison. “That’s how I know I’m addicted, I couldn’t even stop,” he told Atlanta’s V103 radio station. “I wanted to, but I couldn’t stop.”
During his pre-rehab radio interview, the 29-year-old said he was now going to look for that “natural high, the natural happiness.”
Scrappy last released his delayed second LP, Tha Gru$tle, in 2012. The album title was a play on the grind and the hustle that he lives. He is said to be working on his third solo LP.
