One time this asshole French radio DJ in Paris had a tattoo artist in his studio and talked me into getting his initial (the letter “C”) tattooed on my wrist. I regretted letting him make me his bitch like that and burned that “C” clean off my wrist with cigarettes one night. Then I ended up getting clean and sober and covering up the pot leaf with a palm tree. When I posted a video about this yesterday, many of you started bitching about how pot is great and it sucks I covered up the pot leaf. If you enjoy pot, I’m happy for you, the simple fact is that I can’t smoke it anymore because I’ll have an allergic reaction to it– my face will break out in cocaine, ketamine, pcp, and nitrous oxide (among other things). That’s all. xoxo -O”
