After a long period of silence, Big Bang's leader G-Dragon opened up about his marijuana scandal.
On the February 20th episode of SBS 'Healing Camp', G-Dragon remarked, "At the time, I took a urine drug test, as well as a hair follicle drug test. When I received the results, I was shocked and I felt like the results were unfair. I didn't believe it at first, because I knew I didn't do it, but the results stated otherwise. I didn't know where things had started to go wrong."
"There was something I felt that could have contributed to the results, and it was weighing on my heart so I talked about it during the investigation. After our concert in Japan (May 2011), we had an after-party where a lot people were in attendance. I think the fact that I received a cigarette from a stranger there became the source of the problem. That incident started to be closely investigated, and it just came out."
"We hosted the party ourselves, and we were in a really good mood because the concert went really well. At that moment, I had a lot to drink, and my managers were doing their own thing, and I was alone. I went to the restroom, and someone offered me a cigarette. I thought it would be rude to refuse, so I accepted it without giving it a second thought," he reminisced.
MC Lee Kyung Kyu then asked, "Marijuana is different from cigarettes, is it not? Why were you unable to tell the difference?", to which G-Dragon responded, "I was intoxicated from the alcohol, and I just figured it was a really strong cigarette. I never smelled [marijuana] before, so I couldn't tell the difference. It looked like the cigarettes that I smoke."
When asked, "You're not lying, are you?", G-Dragon answered, "No, I'm not. It wouldn't be possible for my lies to be believable, and if I was lying, I would never have been able to face the public."
