Allen Iverson was dominant on the court, but even he couldn’t avoid the horrible trip that came when he tried hash for the first time with Biggie.

Iverson wore a T-shirt inspired by Janet Jackson’s famous 1993 Rolling Stone cover to the smoke session — but the photo was replaced with an illustration of a cartoon alien in place of the diva.
“I just remember going to the bathroom… I’m looking in the mirror at the shirt, and I notice that the shirt did not have her face… it had an alien face on her body,” he recalled in an interview with The Player’s Tribune this week.
It appears the stoned hoops star had forgotten he was wearing a parody version of the Jackson image, and couldn’t figure out what had happened to Jackson’s face.
“I’m looking in the mirror and I’m trippin.’ I’m wiping the shirt off [to try and reveal the human Jackson’s face] and everything. I’m thinking like that’s supposed to be her, but it’s this alien cartoon character,” he said.
The retired 76’ers star dropped his own marijuana strain with retired basketball star Al Harrington’s cannabis company, Viola, last week. He relayed the high tale to promote the weed.
He added he also got repeatedly lost on his way back into the studio and kept ending up in the bathroom.
“A lady was walking by, and as I was walking by her, I was just stomping ‘cause I couldn’t feel my feet. And she was like, ‘Uh, A.I., you alright?’” he remembered.
“I went back to my hotel room — room was spinning or whatever. And that was like the weirdest experience that I had,” he said.
He said he thinks the problem was that he was used to smoking cannabis buds, but that — unbeknownst to him — he’d been smoking hash with Biggie.
