Jagger Takes Drug Stand On Larry King

Mick Jagger sat down with Larry King of CNN Tuesday (5/18) for a wide ranging interview that included some discussion of drug use.  Asked whether he'd performed high, Jagger replied 'probably', but said it was so long ago he doesn't remember.  Before telling King it's something he never does anymore because he thinks it compromises the performance, Jagger drew a distinction between recreational drug use and doing drugs or alcohol while working.  He also suggested the legalization of recreational drug use on a trial basis by the British government, proposing, ' should try the legalization of all drugs on the Isle of Man and see what happens.'  He said his view on the subject is based on the belief that laws won't prevent drug use and that  legalization would ' end the violence from both ends of the supply line.'  Jagger told King he still gets escorted to a 'little room' for additional screening each time he arrives in the US due to a decades old marijuana charge against him.
