George Michael Fires Up Joint During Interview
    #6197998 - 10/22/06 04:23 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Like George Michael being on drugs is really that big of a shock to any of us?

LONDON, England (AP) -- George Michael praised marijuana and apparently smoked a joint during a recently taped television interview, prompting criticism from anti-drug campaigners Friday.

British television network ITV said the singer lit up while being interviewed for the arts program "The South Bank Show." The interview is due to be broadcast October 31.

"This stuff keeps me sane and happy," Michael, 43, told the program.

"I'd say it's a great drug -- but obviously it's not very healthy. You can't afford to smoke it if you've got anything to do."

A spokeswoman for "The South Bank Show" said the interview had been conducted in Madrid, Spain, where marijuana consumption is legal. In September, Michael launched his "25 Live" tour -- his first in 15 years -- in Spain.

Earlier this month, the former Wham! singer was given a formal warning for possessing marijuana after police found him slumped over the steering wheel of his car in north London.

He was also cautioned for possession of the drug in February. Marijuana users can be sentenced to up to two years in jail for possession in Britain, though in practice, most people found with small amounts are given a warning.

Paul Corry, a spokesman for mental health charity Rethink, said Michael's comments were "stupid and naive."

William Butler, spokesman for drug treatment charity Addaction, said he was "concerned about the message this can send out to young people."

"Cannabis is illegal because it can be harmful, as can all drugs," he said.

Michael's publicist said the singer had no comment.

Prescription drugs can be harmful too. Let's illegalize those next.

It's nice to know we have a government that doesn't trust us with anything more deadly than a pair of safety scissors.

I'm putting Madrid on my list of places to go in Europe. I didn't know marijuana consumption was legal there.




Consumption of marijuana even here in the U.S. is not illegal, It the possession of that is. You can't be arrested for "the act of consuming", unless you are driving or are blatantly publicly intoxicated.

In South Dakota, having consumed marijuana is possession, as long as it is still in your body.

I guess, but here when they arrest you for the "act" of smoking, they arrest you for dealing, since passing a joint is dealing here. So just refuse to pass lol. And if then, when you have a joint or w/e in your hand that would be possession no?

Make drugs legal, or alcohol and tobacco illegal. Either way it's more fair.
