Paolo Nutini: Pot's No Worse Than Alcohol

Paolo Nutini: "Marijuana can spawn all kinds of things, but no more so than alcohol."

In his Q magazine cover story, Scottish soul singer Paolo Nutini says he's smoked weed "every day since I was about 16. Can the world please get to grips with marijuana? How long can this go on?"

"Don’t get me wrong," continues Nutini, who's 27, "you can give it to the wrong person. Marijuana can spawn all kinds of things, but no more so than alcohol."

On "Scream (Funk Up My Life)" from his latest album Caustic Love, Nutini sings: "Light a match and then I’m back in my teens/ Me and super girl smoking my green."
