Lil Scrappy Gets Clean, Checks Out Of Rehab For Marijuana Addiction


Lil Scrappy checked himself into rehab May 30th for an addiction to marijuana, but TMZ reports that he was released from his facility at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday (June 29).

Scrap—who has had a number of probation violation issues stemming from an original arrest in 2008 for marijuana possession—admitted back in May to being addicted to weed after failing a court-mandated drug test. After vowing to get clean, he checked into rehab, and has been clean for a month. The Atlanta rapper and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star now must also undergo random drug tests, and will begin mentoring teens about drug addiction and sharing his story with them.

“Scrappy has had time to reflect, read, and write,” his lawyer Mawuli Mel Davis told TMZ. “He is now drug and alcohol free.”

    Whatever it takes. And some people do get addicted because they cant function without it, and in his case, he can’t have it. His daughter should be his only drug at this point.

    n ever-growing body of scientific research clearly demonstrates that Marijuana is less addictive than a cup of tea.

    Dr. Jack E. Henningfield of the National Institute on Drug Abuse and Dr. Neal L. Benowitz of the University of California at San Francisco ranked six psychoactive substances on five criteria.

    Withdrawal — The severity of withdrawal symptoms produced by stopping the use of the drug.

    Reinforcement — The drug’s tendency to induce users to take it again and again.

    Tolerance — The user’s need to have ever-increasing doses to get the same effect.

    Dependence — The difficulty in quitting, or staying off the drug, the number of users who eventually become dependent

    Intoxication — The degree of intoxication produced by the drug in typical use.

    The tables listed below show the rankings given for each of the drugs. Overall, their evaluations for the drugs are very consistent. It is notable that marijuana ranks below caffeine in most addictive criteria, while alcohol and tobacco are near the top of the scale in many areas.

    The rating scale is from 1 to 6 — 1 denotes the drug with the strongest addictive tendencies, while 6 denotes the drug with the least addictive tendencies.

    real talk, this was nothing other than a ploy to stay out of jail. Period. He came with the fake pee and got busted. He slow on his hustle. He lucky he got that tv show or he wouldn’t be able to Lindsey Lohan his way out of it. Weed addiction. More like discipline issues and stupidity. You on parole. Plain and simple. Why he on parole, cause he stupid.
