Lily Allen: “Parents Should Encourage Kids To Try Drugs!”
Lily Allen has sparked outrage by encouraging parents to tell their children to try illegal drugs.
The British singing star believes hard drugs, like cocaine and ecstasy, may not harm users, and insists parents should allow their youngsters to experiment.
In an interview with Dutch magazine Revu, Lily says, “Parents should say, ‘Drugs might seem fun but they do funny things to your brain. Some people react to it good, some don’t. Try it and see what you think.’ If I hadn’t been famous I’d have taken loads. Wouldn’t be too wise right now. I’ve never been good with cocaine or drugs like that.”
Was she high when she made this statement?
“I steer clear of heroin or crack,” Lily added.
Well, that’s reassuring. SMH.
In January, Lily was forced to issue a statement clarifying her stance on drugs after she was quoted in interview noting that she knows people who “take cocaine three nights a week and get up and go to work everyday, no problem.”
