The interviewer laid out the different types of cannabis consumption and questioned the fighter regarding his favorite method. Jared Cannonier’s eyes lit up upon hearing the question. He said, “I like the pipe.” He then continued, “I smoke my pipe because I don’t want any of the other.” Pipe smoking is revealed to possess a soothing nature to it.

You know, smoking is bad enough, it puts the stuff in your lungs already,” said a self-aware Jared Cannonier.
