“Rowdy” Roddy Piper Responds to Video of Him Smoking Marijuana

Nick Paglino

We reported several days ago that TMZ had released a video of Roddy Piper smoking out of a bong and later smoking a marijuana cigarette. Piper had responded to the released video by issuing the following statement to TMZ.com: â<80><9c>I am not an advocate of using drugs, however due to the lack of appropriate medicine, this alternative treatment was recommended to alleviate the symptoms associated with cancer.â<80> TMZ later goes on to bash Piper’s excuse, citing it as improper to smoke out of a bong handed to him by a civilian he didn’t know rather than a doctor. Piper was diagnosed with cancer in November of 2006.
