Tony Bennett’s red carpet proposal to legalize all drugs in the wake of Whitney Houston’s death sparked the conversation about drug use among celebrities. Bennett sited Amsterdam, claiming legalization “calmed everybody down. It stopped a lot of gangsters who sneak around and get people to take drugs. Everybody gets wounded that way. By legalizing it, you won’t have that problem.”
Quincy Jones tells CBS News , that there is no way to keep drug use out of the music world. He claims, “It goes with the turf, you know, it really does.” Quincy points out that musicians are on the road a lot, and they go out at night together. Working on the road is not always conducive to recovery because you are often far away from support.
