At the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party this weekend, singer Tony Bennett urged the U.S. government to legalize drugs (video below).
Bennett invoked Whitney Houston who had died a few hours before the gala: “First it was Michael Jackson, then it was Amy Winehouse, and now the magnificent Whitney Houston."
“I would like every gentleman and lady in this room to commit themselves to get our government to legalize drugs. So they can be getting to a doctor, not to some gangsters who sell them up under the table. There’s enough going on, and it’s time to straighten out our own lives. We’re the greatest country in the world, and we should never forget that.”
