Mark Wahlberg Quit Smoking Pot

Mark Wahlberg admitted that he quit smoking pot after receiving Variety's Indie Impact Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival on Sunday. At the event, Wahlberg noted the trophy resembled a bong and added: "But I don't use those anymore."

The actor and producer went on and explained: "I stopped smoking weed for my [four] kids. One day, we were driving and you could smell it from somewhere. My daughter asked what the smell was so I told her it was a skunk. Then she said, 'Sometimes Daddy smells like that!' to me and my wife [Rhea Durham]. So I knew I had to quit."

Wahlberg has reportedly replaced his weekend party toke with church.
