During Lady Gaga’s performance in Amsterdam this week (September 17th), the singer picked up a spliff that had been thrown on stage by one of her Little Monsters and continued to light it up and enjoy it while having an intimate conversation with the crowd.
In the midst of smoking the marijuana, she said, “I thought that in Holland it would be an appropriate place to discuss my current openness about being a cannabis smoker because I have decided that I want you to know the truth, which is that it has totally changed my life and that I’ve really cut down on drinking. It’s, like, been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music.”
While some may have enjoyed seeing Gaga indulge in the substance, John Jolly, CEO of Blenheim CDP was against Gaga’s public usage of the illegal substance and offered to take her on a tour of his facility so that she could see the negative effects of its usage.
“I think it’s always unhelpful when people in the public eye of a particular influence are seen engaging in drug use, particularly because cannabis use is a significant problem for people under 25 in the U.K.,” he said. “The predominant drug we are dealing with in our treatment centers for people under 25 years old is cannabis so it’s particularly unhelpful when things like this happen.”
Good luck with that ….
