EXCLUSIVE: 'Workaholics' Actor Adam Devine Reveals The Heartwarming Story Behind His Most Meaningful Joint

Adam Devine, the talented actor and comedian, recently shared an intimate memory about the most meaningful joint he ever smoked in the context of an interview about his partnership with cannabis beverage brand Cann. The star, best known for his roles in popular shows and movies such as "Workaholics" and "Pitch Perfect," opened up about how cannabis played a significant role in helping his father during a difficult period in his life.

In a heartfelt account, Devine recalled the time when his father was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. Feeling unwell and struggling with the side effects of his treatment, his father would join him on the front porch to smoke a joint and share precious moments together.

Devine said, "We would go on the front porch and smoke a joint and sit together and talk about life and laugh." He added that cannabis helped his father "forget about what he was going through," and the memories from those moments will "last a lifetime."

Devine also shared his father's perspective on alcohol during this challenging time, explaining that he didn't want to "put more poison" in his body while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. His father felt that these treatments made him feel hungover, and consuming alcohol would only exacerbate the discomfort. In contrast, cannabis alleviated his father's discomfort and made him feel better.

In addition to its role in his father's cancer battle, Devine also highlighted the importance of cannabis as a way to bond with friends. He described smoking a joint as a "communal experience" that fosters a sense of kinship among those participating. The actor fondly recalled connecting with old friends from college and high school and smoking a joint together, cherishing these moments as some of his "favorite memories."
