Brazilians Embrace Insanity, Chaos

Brazilian Minister of Culture says that he smoked marijuana until the age of 50
June 1, 2005

The Brazilian Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil, aged 62, said that he smoked marijuana until he was 50. In addition he defended the decriminalization of drug's consumption.

Gil took part in a press conference with journalists of Folha de S?o Paulo on Monday (May, 30). During the interview the Brazilian minister asked: "Why do should they [drugs] be forbidden?" He added that the drugs problem should be handled as a matter of public health. Gil had already defended the idea of decriminalization during a interview with Brazilian magazine Veja.

Gilberto Gil, and the drummer Chiquinho Azevedo, were arrested in 1976 in Florian?polis because they were carrying marijuana.

There is no consensus on decriminalization among Brazilians. Some people, like this Brazilian Anti-drugs website (http://www.antidrogas.org.br/), believe that psychoactive drugs are dangerous and can lead to health problems, including chemical dependence.

Wow, what a surprise. He looks like a normal, straightedge politician.

Gilberto Gil is also a well known musician. Some of his songs can be considered "interventionists".
It was a great surprise when Brazil president Lula made him minister of culture, but anyway, i really can't think of anyone else better than him for the job.

Why the 'Brazilians Embrace Insanity, Chaos' title?
