Kelly Clarkson in US Weekly:
'I cannot understand the fact that controlled narcotic substances and alcohol are legal and weed isn't. How many people do you know who have died from weed? My point exactly.'
In Rolling Stone:
'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."'
