MY INTERPRETATION is that he has accepted the fact that he must deal with ADHD and he is sick of having to do activities to fit in with his peers. Like when he says "12 bottles in the case fuck that" I think that means he's sick of having to drink all the time to fit in and wants to have fun without worrying what others may think.

The concept of the overall song is a person diagnosed with ADHD is going to have a shorter attention span on certain thoughts, conversations, or whatever. They display a sense of apathy characterized by the “fuck that” mentality
He’s pronouncing “that” the way the British pronounce it, which also sounds like the word “thought”. Referring to how people use drugs as a way to avoid thought. The marijuana, alcohol, painkillers all mess with and retard our thoughts. It’s a social commentary on the mental state of the ever-increasing medicated and apathetic youth
It’s important to add that he’s not judging them for the “Fuck That” mentality. He’s merely showing the state of his Section 80 generation and highlighting that they are more than anything a PRODUCT of their times
“Fuck that” is also pronounced in a way to sound like he could be saying “Fuck Dot”, a reference to the name K-Dot, which Kendrick used to rap under. “Fuck Dot” could have many meanings including that he has moved beyond his old ways and is now proud to be Kendrick Lamar, who actually doesn’t need 8 doobies, 12 bottles, 2 pills or a half weight to make him happy. “Fuck Dot” is dismissing his old self and celebrating how Kendrick has found himself
