Rob Ford Has No Chill About Weed Strain Named After Him

Don’t kush it.

Rob Ford wants people to know he doesn’t take guff from those who crack jokes about what he does or doesn’t puff.

On Wednesday, CityNews Toronto asked the former Toronto mayor if he’s aware about the existence of a marijuana strain named “Rob Ford Kush.”

Ford ducked on a straight answer, instead calling into question the news outlet’s authority to report current events and affairs.

The semantic slash-and-burn technique is a part of an apparent Twitter renaissance for Ford — who also marked the start of 2016 with new veneers. Ford seems to be taking a page from Toronto councillor Norm Kelly’s book on public engagement.

He continued to answer miscellaneous questions ranging from who he would like to see play him in a film adaptation about his life to reiterating his intention to run for Toronto mayor, again.

To those skeptical if Ford was really the one writing the tweets behind his account, he offered a photo of him posing with Wednesday’s issue of the National Post.

Ford gained international notoriety with the moniker, “Toronto’s crack-smoking mayor.

He is currently undergoing a new round of chemotherapy at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. The Etobicoke councillor is expected to be discharged next week, his spokesperson told CP24.

In November, Ford revealed two new tumours had formed on his bladder. He was diagnosed with liposarcoma, a rare form of cancer, in 2014.
