26 Jan 2012 - Rapper The Game posted a photo of himself on Twitter on Monday with five large bags of marijuana boasting "Fresh kut. Fresh kush." Kush refers to a subset of strains of Cannabis Indica. The origins of Kush cannabis are from landrace plants mainly in Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan and North-Western India with the name coming from the Hindu Kush mountain range.
It isn't the first time that a tweet from The Game, who's real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, led to controversy. Last fall The Game posted the emergency line for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department on his Twitter account, urging his followers to call for a chance to intern with him.
After an investigation due to the lines being jammed, the LASD decided not to seek criminal charges and The Game later issued an apology saying, "My sincerest apologies to the Sheriff's Department, it was a joke gone wrong."
20 Apr 2005 - Rap star The Game has become so obsessed with smoking marijuana, he insists the drug brings out his masculinity.
The HATE IT OR LOVE IT star, who is touring North America with fellow hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg, has even appeared on the front cover of HIGH TIMES - a US magazine devoted to psychotropic drugs - smoking a joint.
The Game - real name JAYCEON TAYLOR - happily endorses the controversial substance: "You just feel more manly when you smoke Blunts. I'll forever be a smoker. Weed is good."
