“If I made a mistake with marijuana, why am I not eligible for rehab? I’ve been on marijuana since a teenager. I need some rehab. Jail is not rehab.”
For those who haven’t been updated on the Lil Boosie drama, here is a quick summary. Lil Boosie, A/K/A Torrence Hatch was convicted on a third offense for marijuana possession.
However, like the trend of rappers who seem to be doing it, Boosie then violated his house arrest and was ordered to serve 2 years in prison. At first Boosie said that jail time would be good for him and beneficial to himself in the long run. However, the closer the jail date approaches, the less Boosie is feeling the beneficiary part of prison, and is now attempting a new approach at the situation.
Boosie has now said that he does not need jail, but needs rehab for his addiction to marijuana. Boosie does not understand his sentence and claims that he is being judged on his rap alter ego and not the true Torrence Hatch:
“If I made a mistake with marijuana, why am I not eligible for rehab?” Boosie questioned. “I’ve been on marijuana since a teenager. I need some rehab. Jail is not rehab.”
“They’re treating me on who they think I am. They judging me on Boosie Bad Azz, not Torrence Hatch,” Boosie stated to Louisiana’s WAFB channel 9 before starting his sentence. “I had to do these two shows these last two days to feed my family.”
Boosie violated his house arrested to do two concerts for what he said “was to feed my kids.” This is Boosie’s 4th (yes 4th) prison sentence, being the 3rd for marijuana possession. At press time, Lil Boosie is in custody at Winn Correctional Center in Louisiana, and serving his two year sentence. Once released, he will have to complete 5 years of probation.
Ok Boosie, so you got 2 million on your neck but can’t feed your kids…maybe you need this time to yourself.
