Does Demi Lovato smoke weed? The answer is complicated.
In 2015, she posted a photo on her Instagram account for 4/20 which featured herself, Miley Cyrus, and Joe Jonas. The caption read
“In honor of our former escapades, I thought you’d like this to remember our first blaze…Happy #420.”
It was a nice display of humor, considering that the Jonas brother publicly stated that she and Cyrus pressured him into trying weed just a year before! Speaking of Cyrus, Lovato expressed that she was proud of her friend for her famous cannabis cessation in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
“I am really proud of Miley. I think that it helps people to know that there are people in the spotlight that have challenges, that are faced with very stressful lives…it helps to know that recovery is possible and it’s something that is so important to certain people like myself.”
Furthermore, Lovato recently celebrated five years of sobriety. During a 2016 interview with Refinery 29, Lovato admitted that she had a raging addiction to cocaine. She checked herself into rehab after punching a backup dancer during a tour with the Jonas Brothers. After rehab, she resided in a Los Angeles sober-living house.
