Kelly Clarkson Talks Pot With Rolling Stone

Kelly Clarkson is all about freedom in 2015.

The former American Idol winner celebrates the final installment of her six-record deal with RCA Records this year, which was signed immediately after she won the musical competition’s debut season in 2002.

Clarkson apparently loves her newfound freedom from the mainstream music business so much that she’s now fighting for the right to legalize marijuana.

The 32-year-old pop music icon came out in favor of legalizing pot earlier this year by arguing, “How many people do you know who have died from weed? My point exactly.”

Clarkson elaborated on her pro-pot stance when an interview with Rolling Stone published this week asked her about legalization.

Says Clarkson:

I’m not even a pothead, I just think it’s funny that we legalize something as destructive as alcohol or pills and not that. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some alcohol, but I don’t know anybody in rehab because of pot. And I know a ton of people that have died either from liver cancer or behind the wheel. We legalize things that are so disturbing for our bodies, but one that’s completely fine, we say, “No, that’s bad for you.” I’m like, “Okay, enjoy your scotch. Enjoy your Xanax.”

It’s still unclear as to whether or not American Idol runner-up and current Dr. Pepper spokespersonJustin Guarini supports legalization, but that’s only because no one really cares.
