Lily Allen: Cocaine Is No Problem For Lots Of People

Singer Lily Allen has come in for criticism after suggesting cocaine use can be acceptable for some people.

The Smile star appeared to condone the use of the Class A substance in an interview with the Metro, claiming friends who regularly take the drug are able to lead a normal life.

"I know lots of people that take cocaine three nights a week and get up and go to work every day, no problem at all," the 24-year-old said.

"But we never hear that side of the story. I have no statement to make, I just wish people wouldn't sensationalise this thing that just exists.

"The only story is that drugs are bad and they will kill you - you will become a prostitute, a rapist or a dealer. But that's not true."

Allen has previously admitted to taking drugs but stressed she no longer did so.

Shadow Home Secretary Dominic Grieve yesterday said her comments were "naive".

"There is no doubt that drugs fuel crime and wreck lives,' he told the Daily Mail.

"It's naive to assume there isn't human misery and suffering associated with every drug transaction somewhere along the line."

Lily Allen releases her new single The Fear on January 26th

Look around you Lily. No I mean really look around you.Cocaine along with other class A, B and C drugs are an absolute disaster for everyone concerned.No one can take any type of drug and be able to function at their best.I have seen my son, some of his friends and a number of my work Colleagues destroy their lives with cocaine so I speak from experience.The sooner we can rid our world of drugs the better.It is a really sad state of affairs when the human race has to turn to drugs to cope with life.Say No, No, No to drugs. You will regret it if you don't

The person before me said it, she is naive. Any reasonable celebrity knows that advocating cocaine is image suicide. But knowing how weird the world works, this might increase her record sales. Sadly, its seems the dumber the statement celebrities make, the better it is for their careers. More dumb girls are probably gonna try cocaine now...heh oh well.
