Chris Brown is complaining to friends that he should be allowed to take medical marijuana for his anger management issues because it’s legal in California, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The troubled singer — ordered Wednesday to spend three months in rehab after throwing a rock through his mother’s car window whilst in rehab — does not want to continue to use anti-depressent drugs which have been prescribed to him, a source said.
“They make Chris feel very numb and he felt that everything around him was fuzzy,” the insider revealed.
“He felt dull and thirsty all the time. He had been taking medical marijuana for the last several years, until the judge said Chris couldn’t take it beginning last summer. It was just another instance in which Chris felt he was being treated differently because of his celebrity status.
“Add that on top of the fact the judge ruled that he had to do all of his community service all over again because of questions regarding the work he had done in Virginia and Chris feels like he just can’t catch a break.”
According to the Grammy-award winner’s probation report, 24-year-old Brown was discharged from the rehab facility after getting angry with his mother, Joyce Hawkins, during a family counseling session.
Brown also suffers from ADD and had been depressed in recent weeks, the report said.
He voluntarily checked into rehabilitation, but after two weeks, as Radar first revealed, he left and was spotted at a sushi restaurant.
In addition to returning to rehab for 90 days, the singer must also submit to periodic drug testing and can’t leave Los Angeles area.
The singer is “really trying to move forward from the incident with Rihanna, but feels it’s just going to haunt him for the rest of his life. He believes if he was allowed to take the marijuana things would dramatically improve in his life, immediately. Chris isn’t the monster everyone thinks he is,” the insider added.
