With how outspoken he is, Zahid Ahmed makes sure to let everyone know that that isn’t the case. From being open about plastic surgery and online hate, he’s now talking about another taboo – drug use.

In a recent interview he talked about how he used to smoke “hash” for almost 2 decades.

He asks “why don’t we talk about it? When will we talk about this?”

He goes on to add how his sons are growing up in a world where marijuana and hash are more common than ever. He also breifly discussed how Islamabad even has regular users of crystal meth – even though it’s a very dangerous drug.

Zahid reveals that while he was an active user he “didn’t give a damn about anything.” He says that “when you’re high it’s easy not to care about anything at all” but he’s someone that did the drugs but now is on the other side and has been clean for years.

A lot of people who indulge in smoking marijuana in Pakistan say that “there are no side effects of smoking it”. Zahid says that “even if there aren’t any proven side effects there aren’t any benefits either. When I left drugs I felt a lot of change”

Zahid advises the youth of Pakistan to try to stay away from indulging in drugs and to study up on how harmful they can be physically and mentally.
