Meek Mill is opening up about his love/hate relationship with weed.
In a tweet, the Philly rapper said that smoking marijuana makes him feel depressed.
“I smoke weed everyday and get depressed and soon as I get high,” he told his 11 million Twitter followers. “I be happy as hell sober lol.”
However, there are some upsides. “It just helps me think deeper and more realistic lol,” he added.

His fans weighed in with their own theories on why he may be feeling down. “Weed is a downer. If your already depressed it does nothing but amplify that,” wrote one.
IT’S ALL THINKING HABITS. TRAIN UR BRAIN TO BECOME MORE HAPPIER W UR SELF WHILE BEING NON INTOXICATED..
THAT’S REAL FULFILLMENT

WEED DON’T MAKE US HAPPY–IT MAKES US “REALIZE” THE TRUTHS OF OUR LIFE. AND, A LOT OF OUR SH!T IS DEPRESSING.

In November, Meek announced that he would be taking a break from social media because of the impact on his mental health.
“About to take a break from social media … I see too much crazy shit!” he wrote. “Being a young kid gotta be confusing as shit in these times of social media….. I be lost seeing some of this stuff.”
Meek, who dropped his album Expensive Pain in October, is now working on the fifth and final installment in his Dreamchasers mixtape series, which he plans to release as an NFT this year.
“You gone need a eTh address to hear this new mixtape … google how to get one asap! Now I can really rap,” he wrote.
