Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor smokes weed 'every morning' & credits drug with saving marriage to Brittany Cartwright

VANDERPUMP Rules' alum Jax Taylor admitted he smokes weed 'every morning.

The former Bravolebrity told a podcast he credits the drug with saving marriage to Brittany Cartwright.

Jax told the Daddy Issues podcast with Joe Buck and Oliver Hudso‪n‬: "Guys, listen, I'm a new dad. I'm getting up early. I'm up at like five or six. I get up at like five or six every day cause I go to bed kind of early. So I get up five or six. But I need that first cup of coffee and just a couple hits of a joint in the morning just to make my day…

"The coffee and the weed they kind of level me out… I don't drink alcohol anymore. I don't do anything else. All I do is my occasional joint before I go to bed and once in the morning… I started about three years ago, to be honest when my father passed away. It was just brutal… It not only helped with my anxiety, it helped with my marriage, with my friends. I'm just a calmer person. I don't let things bother me. I have a very short fuse- very, very short fuse, like my father… I probably wouldn't be with my wife right now if it wasn't for weed.

He went on: "… The weed helps. I get a good night's sleep with the edibles at night… In my heyday, in my Hollywood fun days, I would take that stuff during the day, but now being a father I need my sleep. I take it before bed, and I don't wake up until six in the morning. And when I wake up at six, I'm like gung-ho ready to go… no grogginess… I stopped drinking, not because I dislike alcohol, but because my body won't accept it anymore…"

Jax recently sounded off on his huge $1.2million tax debt, insisting it's "not a big deal."

The former reality star recently purchased a $2M Los Angeles mansion with Brittany but explained on Instagram Live: "Oh yeah, I had a bad tax situation. I had a bad bookkeeper. We all get bad bookkeepers.

"I suggest researching your bookkeeper when you pay your taxes because I got f***ed.”

He added: "I’m fixing it. It’s not a big deal."

Jax also slammed the "pathetic" trolls who have been "bullying" his pregnant wife, Brittany, who is due this month.

The 41-year-old lashed out at the trolls who have been taunting the mom-to-be about her weight gain during pregnancy.

The star reposted a screengrab of a tweet he wrote, which said: "I'll never understand the thought process of going to a person's social media who you don't know and verbally assaulting them.

"Like how much time do you have in your pathetic life. You look like a sad insecure soul. Jesus build people up right now don't we have enough shit to read."

Jax added: "I'll never understand people who project insecurities they have onto others."

Jax went on defending Brittany: "I will never understand people who bully and harass on social media, especially when it comes to a pregnant woman.

"I don't know who needs to hear this, just take a minute before you write a hateful text. Why are you doing it? What are you gaining from it?

"Bring people up not down, we have enough hate in this world. Have a great day."
