Harry Potter Says He Wasn't Smoking Pot


The Mirror published pictures today (see above) of what they say is Daniel Radcliffe enjoying a spliff. You know his name is just made for smoking pot. You have the whole Potter and pot. Then you have the fact that spliff rhymes with Radcliffe. You just don't find that kind of literary, lyrical symmetry very often. Oh sure, maybe in a Katie Price book or the biography of Paris Hilton, but really it is rare.

Anyway, most of the time celebrities don't care if you picture them smoking a joint. An exception would be well, I guess if you saw some 15 or 16 year old A list tweener who should know better considering how often she is photographed, but anyway, I digress.

Anyway, Daniel is pissed and says he is going to sue. His rep told the BBC, "Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this. We categorically deny the claims regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today's Daily Mirror. We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations."

That is a strongly worded letter. Well, a phone call, or maybe an e-mail. Anyway, you get the point. I think this one is going to cost The Daily Mirror about 100K in damages and legal fees. But, if they sold more than that in papers then it is a win.

Meh. I'm not going to get worked up over someone smoking pot. Or in this case, allegedly smoking it.

There is an interview with some girl from the party who said he kept running around screaming "I love weed!" Funny visual, and I like the rep talking about roll-up cigarettes.

Pot is legal in CO if you have a medical license. I also heard CA is going to legalize it for sale to adults because of their $$$ problems. Anyone from CA know if that is true? I have always said tax it. I think it's like the lotto and casinos. Once one state started making money, the other 49 wanted on the band wagon. Even Utah.

I find alcohol to be much more offensive than smoking the cheeb. Lame story.

Twilight girl Kirsten smokes weed in public in the filming set(that explains her acting in Twilight movie) and no one cares!

ITA with Sunnyside1213! C'mon, the economy is in the toilet, and we're not even *considering* legalizing weed for sale nationwide and taxing it??? That's just dumb and allowing an outdated morality to stand in the way of making sound decisions for our economy!
