Rapper Wiz Khalifa is known to be a huge lover of Mary Jane, but now that he’s new to fatherhood, his love for smoking has made him the target of lots of criticism. Wiz has already made it clear in past interviews that he knows he can’t smoke around Bash, but he said he plans to teach his son about smoking and he wants to make sure he doesn’t let the government affect how he views it. Neither Amber or Wiz plans to hide his habit from the baby when he gets old enough to understand it and Amber herself said she feels smoking is pretty much the same as drinking alcohol. So neither thought it would be a big deal when Amber posted photos of Bash wearing Mary Jane socks to her Instagram account.

After Amber posted the photo, she was immediately slammed by angry fans and even called a bad mother. Of course she did clap back at her critics on her Twitter account, but it’s clear there are still plenty of people who just can’t get over the photo.

In a recent interview with Street Sweepers Radio, Wiz talks candidly about smoking with his son and even explains why he feels people were overacting about those infamous socks. He says:

“[We’ll smoke together] when he’s old enough, if it’s legal. I’m not planning on doing it while he’s a baby. I put out a picture of him in some w*ed socks and people started tripping, like I’ma (sic) be smoking w*ed with him. He’s not gonna (sic) smoke until, if, he makes those decisions himself. But w*ed’s not that bad so it’s all good.

“…It [w*ed] helps more than it hurts. I’d rather him be smoking w*ed than drinking alcohol.”

    Some of y’all need to stop trippin and get high. Weed ain’t bad for you as long as you ain’t lacing it or using blunt paper which is tobacco.
