Over the course of The Who‘s 50 years as a band, you’d think frontman Roger Daltrey would have build up a tolerance to cannabis smoke.

After all, he has performed in weed-filled halls throughout the stoney ’60s up to present day when weed is practically legal. It is surprising to hear that the singer is not so accommodating to people that want to get high while they watch his band.

But, that seems to be the case, as Daltrey threatened to end a concert on Long Island when excessive marijuana smoke bothered his vocals.

According to Newsday, “the smoke’s impact was almost immediate on his voice, which went from crystal clear and potent for the opening ‘I Can’t Explain’ to something rougher and more limited during ‘I Can See for Miles.’”

An NSFW fan video of the incident has surfaced, with guitarist Pete Townshend being diplomatic about the whole incident, suggesting that a smoker stick the drug in his rear, exclaiming, “it is the quickest way!”
