Russell Simmons Says Vegetable Juice Is "Best High"

Listen, Russell Simmons is a big deal type of guy, alright? He’s the co-founder of the hip-hop label Def Jam, creator of clothing line Phat Farm, and he also has this reality show called “Running Russell Simmons” (which is likely a play on his famous brother, Rev. Run Simmons of Run-D.M.C. Yeah, I took it back to the old school).

In the show’s season finale, viewers got to watch Simmons interacting with his assistants and talking about, well, crack cocaine… Okay, that’s not the green part.

But it did come when Simmons suggested a legal way to get high. “The best high is green vegetable juice and meditation,” he said.

He’s not being silly here. To give some perspective, Simmons has been a vegan since 1998, and cites veganism as not only a health benefit but also an environmental one. He also practices Buddhism and Transcendental Meditation, so it seems that for the mogul, going green really does give you the best high.

Check out the video clip from the show here.
