Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Val Venis spoke with Inquisitr recently and opened up about his use of medical marijuana, in addition to speaking about Owen Hart. You can read the highlights below:
On medical marijuana saving his life:
"It's actually saved my life. I had six pins put in my shoulder, can't get my elbows straight anymore, they're always hurting. Doctors had me on anti-inflammatory's and pain pills for years and you can't take those things for the rest of your life without suffering serious consequences. And when I found out about marijuana and started utilizing that instead, in 2008, I came off all pharmaceuticals and never looked back," said Venis. "I could smoke marijuana and eat marijuana for the rest of my life and never suffer any liver disease or kidney failure due to pills. The pills will get you every single time, with marijuana, you could be 110-years-old and still smoke it."
On fellow Canadian Owen Hart:
"There was one time when we watched Owen, he had a driver and he was in the passenger seat and Jeff Jarrett was in the backseat behind Owen. And as they are going up the ramp to drive out from the bottom of the arena, all you hear on the top of the roof of the car is 'whack!' And Owen looks over to the driver, he says 'that guy up there just threw a rock down on your car.' So, the guy stops the car on the ramp, gets out of the car, runs up the ramp, runs around the rail and charges at the guy Owen pointed at. Well, a cop steps out in front of the driver and says 'whoa, this guy didn't throw any rock, the guy with the blonde hair in the car hit the roof of your car with his hand. And when the driver looks over the rail to look at Owen, Owen turns around and says 'Jeff, why did you hit the top of the car?' and put all the heat on Jeff."
