Count “Saturday Night Live” comic Pete Davidson as the latest cast member to do drugs!

But unlike infamous druggies Chevy Chase and the late John Belushi and Chris Farley, Pete says he needs to smoke pot to perform.

“I wouldn’t be able to do ‘SNL’ if I didn’t smoke weed,” explained the 22-year-old funnyman.

“I wouldn’t be able to do anything really. Me performing not high has gone awful. It’s awful for me because I don’t feel well.”

Pete suffers from painful Crohn’s disease, and he sais that with “the medicines that the doctors were prescribing me and seeing all these doctors and trying new things … weed would be the only thing that would help me eat!”
