Right-wing outlet Newsmax anchor Grey Kelly, like many far-right conservatives, is known to be quite critical of marijuana usage.
But if Kelly's claims are to be believed, his distaste comes from personal experience.
On Wednesday, March 31, Kelly shareda story on Twitter of how he tried weed once in Kentucky and "woke up" four days later in Nairobi, Kenya.
"SMOKING WEED (aka GRASS) is NOT a good idea. I've tried it (back in the day) and it was WORSE than anything that happened to HUNTER BIDEN."
"I 'toked up' with some buddies in Kentucky and woke up 4 days later in Nairobi, Kenya. With no idea what happened."
"DON'T DO DRUGS."

Of course, pretty much everyone on the internet was ready to point out to Kelly whatever he smoked definitely wasn't just marijuana.
@gregkellyusa I don’t know why no one told you prior to this but you and your buddies weren’t smoking weed. 😐 https://t.co/2gglr5PtCj— Nikki (@Nikki) 1617269465.0
@gregkellyusa This has to be satire.— Zeb Jenkins (@Zeb Jenkins) 1617269445.0
Cheers to all who have “toked up” in Kentucky and ended up in Kenya because that’s definitely a thing that happens… https://t.co/WGJlgXOqX5— Katie Hill (@Katie Hill) 1617243472.0
Most people assumed Kelly was simply making up the story to scare his conservative audience.

There were some on Twitter who wanted to get their hands on Kelly's weed, the strongest strain they'd ever heard of.
Somebody has to name a strain "Nairobi Express" in honor of this real tweet from a dude who a fascist cult consider… https://t.co/T6B3vDqum8— 🆘Rev Magdalen (@🆘Rev Magdalen) 1617248003.0
@gregkellyusa Genuinely can’t tell if this is a joke or not— Abby 🌸 💛❤️ (@Abby 🌸 💛❤️) 1617268904.0
What possible explanation could there be for Kelly getting slightly high, losing consciousness for four days and ending up in Kenya?
And how did he get a passport and make it onto a plane and through customs?
@gregkellyusa You didn’t ‘accidentally’ join the Marine Corps in between I suppose?— Glen Binnie (@Glen Binnie) 1617268638.0
@gregkellyusa That's not how it works, Greg.— Lea Lane (@Lea Lane) 1617268600.0
Kelly was born in 1968, so "back in the day" would be the 1980s or early 90s.
Airport security wasn't that lax even then.
@gregkellyusa This would have been a hilarious joke if you were joking and not making up the silliest scare tactic imaginable— Brian Box Brown (@Brian Box Brown) 1617269843.0
Of course, Newsmax anchors aren't generally known for their honesty and reliance on the facts.
@gregkellyusa This entire time I thought you were a parody account but then found out you work for Newsmax which is the same thing— Joe Kassabian (@Joe Kassabian) 1617268132.0

Someone keep an eye on Greg Kelly—it's impossible to know why he supposedly ended up in Kenya "back in the day," but there's no telling when it might happen again.
