Drake Discusses Drug-Influenced "Degrassi" Audition

Drake also says he does not drink or smoke weed before performing at concerts.

Drake recently revealed information regarding his perception of drugs and alcohol. During an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Drake spoke about his first time smoking marijuana, which was also the day he went on his first acting audition.

"That was the first audition I went on, but it was a real pivotal day in my life because it was also the day that I finally got accepted by these real cool Jewish kids at school," Drake said of the day he went on his Degrassi audition. "I had a really tug-of-war moment where I actually did something I probably shouldn't have done that starts with W and ends with eed...That was my first time and we did it out of a starts-with-a-B-ends-with-a-ong. It was crazy because that was my first time. I started really getting paranoid. I thought I had completely ruined my life. I was splashing water on my face constantly."

Drake says he was devastated about his act and could not tell his mother that he smoked marijuana. Now, he says, his perspective on drug use and work is different from how it was that day. 

"I don't understand people that can actually go out onstage under the influence of anything really," he said. "I have to be straight and clear-minded, kids at home."
