Puth once reminisced about eating “like a pound of marijuana cookies” and having a six-hour freakout. Did that scare him off weed for good?
At 28-years-old, Charlie Puth has already made a successful career that includes Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, with each new record exposing new layers of his talent, all resulting in music that bears his personal stamp.
This week, it was revealed that Puth is sitting on an unreleased collab with fellow singer and songwriter Zayn Malik. Found my old hard drive…found an old song I made with Zayn that never came out….but damn his voice!!! There’s like 100 vocal layers in here!!

No word if the song will ever be released, but what we really want to know is: Does Puth smoke weed?
Puth has spoken up several times about his social anxiety, his struggles with fame, how he has a hard time dating, and how all of that has influenced his life and music. Still, he’s very tight lipped about his drug use.
In a 2018 interview with Billboard magazine, he explained that his rise to fame was fast and contributed to him overusing marijuana while hanging out with Wiz Khalifa. “He was like, ‘Fool, put this in your tea!’ I was like, ‘Why do I feel relaxed all of a sudden?’ It was liquid THC!” He said that for a time he was out smoking some rappers. Puth reminisced about eating “like a pound of marijuana cookies” and having a six-hour freakout. “I thought I had to party and date a lot of girls and just go crazy,” he said. “I thought it was what was expected of me as a musician. My mom was the one who was like, ‘You’re losing touch with why you got here.'”
In that same interview he said that he now doesn’t smoke weed in order to preserve his falsetto. So, according to his statements over the years, Puth doesn’t seem to be too interested in weed, in whatever shape it comes.
