COOL. HE IS SAYING THE WAR ON DRUGS HAS FAILED AND THEY NEED TO LOOK AT THE REAL PROBLEM FACING THEM AS A COUNTRY – ABUSE OF PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION AND OVER PRESCRIPTION WRITING. OR NOT…..
Tony Bennett called for the legalization of drugs before performing a song in her honor at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammys bash.
The crooner’s point appeared to be that Houston – whose cause of death has not been determined – was only the latest casualty of drug policy that forces people to take risks.
“First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse, now the magnificent Whitney Houston,” the legendary singer was quoted as saying on stage. “I’d like every person in this room to campaign to legalize drugs.”
He continued, “Let’s legalize drugs like they did in Amsterdam,” which Bennett labeled a “very sane” city.
“No one’s hiding or sneaking around corners to get it. They go to a doctor,” explained Bennett.
Dead at 60 or 61, depending on who you believe. In pain for the last 30 years of hid life. Well, when he was not abusing prescription medication.
From Olivia Newton-John…
“It’s so very said,” she told E! Online. “Jeff had a good heart and was so very talented. He was a big part of our family for many years and he will be missed.”
From Marilu Henner………
“I thought he was going to pull out of this,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “He was just a big, loving person. I was always happy to hear from him, and I hope younger kids don’t think of him as just a guy from Celebrity Rehab because he was so much more.”
Henner revealed how close they had been over the years, saying, “Jeff and I knew each other well. He reminded me of one of my brothers and I reminded him of one of his sisters, so we had a real family bond.”
And Danny Devito……..
“Jeff was a good man,” DeVito said in a statement to E! News. “I will always think of him fondly and of our days together with the Taxi family. Finally he’s at peace.”
Always thought it sucked that ‘Grease Lightning’ was given to Danny Zuko in the film of ‘Grease’. It made you understand the character of Kenickie….
You may have noticed I have kinda lost interest in this story….Is tiresome now. And why was she being investigated by Child Services?
Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva have been set to be cleared in the investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services.
The two accused each other of child abuse allegations during their ongoing custody battle. Gibson accused Grigorieva of shaking their 9-month-old daughter Lucia. Grigorieva alleges that Mel punched her in the head while she was holding Lucia.
A source says:
“The case will be officially closed when several more people that deal with Lucia are officially interviewed, and that should take place in the next few weeks. The people that play a key role in Lucia’s life have already been interviewed, and barring any bombshell developments from the remaining people that are going to be dealt with, the case will be closed, with no action being taken against Mel or Oksana.”
However, the DCFS will be keeping a close watch on Mel and Oksana, with the source adding, “Just because no action is being taken at this point, and the investigation appears to be wrapping up, doesn’t mean that officials won’t get involved again. If there are concerns about Lucia’s welfare again in the future, DCFS will become active again.”
Lucia really is the most important person in this whole matter. Hopefully, all the abuse allegations end HERE.
