Ladies, you can't be mad at us men for smoking hella tree. Like we'll share with you ladies!? Wtf!? But to sit here and say we are childish and not men because we enjoy a joint is not only ignorant but idiotic. Just because we like to party makes us not men??? Johnny Depp parties almost every night. Is he not a man?
