Keith Richards Still Drinks And Smokes Pot: Thank God! Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"British rocker Keith Richards told Men`s Journal he still doesn`t regret using drugs and enjoyed using his body as something of "a laboratory.`


The 69-year-old Rolling Stones musician said he still drinks and smokes marijuana, but quit using smack or heroin because drug laws have become more strict in recent years. He also said he stopped using cocaine after he fell out of a tree and injured his head."


Allow me to preface my remarks by declaring that I don`t condone the use of illegal drugs, and I believe criminals who sell drugs should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Let me point out that marijuana is a natural herb, and it should be legalized nationwide. I don`t approve of anyone breaking the law and smoking weed in the states where it`s not legal.

Having that got out of the way let me congratulate Keith Richards for keeping it real, and not becoming a phony anti-drug crusader.

Decrepit rock stars who become anti-drug moralizers make me want to hurl. It`s great that Richards gave up the hard drugs, but it`s satisfying that he still knows how to have a good time. Richards: Smoke a doobie for me!

The beautiful fact that 69-year-old Keith Richards is still smoking weed and drinking alcohol lets me know this world hasn`t gone completely to pot.
