I’ve never smoked weed in my life – Kemi Olunloyo

Self-styled investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, says she has never smoked weed in her life.

The 55-year-old said this on Friday in response to a Twitter user who accused her of supporting musician, Naira Marley, who recently owned up to smoking weed.


“It’s no news that @KemiOlunloyo smokes crack. Most journalists do and that’s why she loves Naira Marley,” the user said.

Ms Olunloyo replied: “Never smoked weed/crack in my life. I’m also an award winning community and clinical pharmacist honored @WhiteHouse @TheJusticeDept for my Work against drug abuse during the @BillClinton @HillaryClinton admin. @BenCardinforMD late @RepCummings sponsored my green card.”

Naira Marley, who is being tried for fraud, had in early November, revealed that he smokes weed but does not do drugs.


“I smoke loud. I don’t do drugs,” he said.

Loud, however, is slang for potent weed. It comes from the fact that the drug marijuana has a strong smell, and since stronger marijuana strains tend to smell stronger than their counterpart, the term ‘loud’ was created for those type of strains.
