But beyond the experience, White is looking for answers and Jesus was an easy and immediate pick, a press release from Cannabis Talk 101 notes.

“I’ve been to eight, nine of 10 Prince concerts, met Michael Jackson… but now if you want me to answer that question?” the former child star said on the latest episode of the Cannabis Talk 101, there to promote and share information about ItsPurpl, a line that includes flower, live resin vapes and pre-rolls.

“I got to get biblical on you. I want to smoke with Jesus,” said the actor-turned celebrity cannabis investor. “I got some questions I want to ask him,” including getting a low-down on the meaning of life, he continued.

As for preferred munchies after the big smoke, White said during the episode that he is a fan of Funyuns, Cheetos, chips and caramel popcorn. “I basically like anything that’s crunchy.”

White says in the interview that the company is also currently working on some cannabis edibles. “The thing I’m really passionate about is just maintaining the quality,” he said of the products, which are currently available in California.

Asked about his favourite smoke, White named one of the company’s own products. “I smoke my joints.”

And country singer and cannabis lover Maren Morris recently told about that her dream celeb partner would have been the late great comic, Robin Williams.

“I went on this YouTube wormhole the other night for three hours watching Robin Williams clips,” Morris told the publication. “I don’t know if he would smoke with me, but I would love to smoke, be around him and just feel his hilarious energy.”
