What do you think about celebrity drug taking?

Dealing too leniently with celebrities who use drugs sends out the wrong message to young people, the United Nations drugs watchdog has said.
Philip Emafo, president of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), warned against treating famous drug users too softly.

When celebrities took illegal drugs, he said, it glamorised narcotics abuse. Amy Winehouse was granted a US visa last month, despite her 2007 arrest in Norway on suspicion of marijuana possession. A court hearing over the incident has been postponed indefinitely. Board member Professor Hamid Ghodse told the Press Association: "There should not be any difference between a celebrity who is breaking the law and non-celebrities.

The report also expressed alarm at the escalating problems in Afghanistan, which produces 93% of the world's opium.

I agree - being famous shouldn't allow you to buy leniency!

yes I agree with that. Especially when being famous means you get free drugs.
