Paolo Nutini admits he has smoked marijuana every day for the last 11 years
The incredibly laid back Scottish singer spoke up in defense of One Direction...
Paolo Nutini has come out with a pretty mad statement saying he's smoked dope "every single day since he was 16." That's every day for 11 years!
In an interview with Q Magazine the singer says it's no worse than have an alcoholic drink everyday and he's also defended One Direction, who received a whole load of criticism after a video of them smoking the drug surfaced a few months ago.
Here's what Paolo said to Q: "Can the world please get to grips with marijuana?
"How long can this go on? Don't get me wrong, give it to the wrong person, marijuana can spawn all kinds of things, but no more than alcohol.
"Come on, people have been saying this for 40 years. One Direction can't have a joint? They're bad role models? Come on. They're men now."
The interviewer then asked him if he smoked dope and Paolo said: "Every day since I was about 16, it just keeps you going."
He also revealed that the drug cause him an unusual injury lately: "(While stoned) I launched into a chunky KitKat and it took out a tooth."
