They Said It On Marijuana, Quotable Saturday, Part LX

Kelly Clarkson is asking the right questions on cannabis legalization
Kelly Clarkson is asking the right questions on cannabis legalization

“Original American Idol” singer Kelly Clarkson wonders aloud in a recent Rolling Stone interview why marijuana is illegal while scotch and Xanax are not:

I’m not even a pothead, I just think it’s funny that we legalize something as destructive as alcohol or pills and not that. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some alcohol, but I don’t know anybody in rehab because of pot. And I know a ton of people that have died either from liver cancer or behind the wheel. We legalize things that are so disturbing for our bodies, but one that’s completely fine, we say, “No, that’s bad for you.” I’m like, “Okay, enjoy your scotch. Enjoy your Xanax.”

Kelly, we wonder the same thing.
