Keith Richards' cannabis confession

Keith Richards "smokes weed all the time".

The Rolling Stones guitarist - who was treated for heroin addiction in the late 70s - admits he still loves getting high on cannabis, but no longer dabbles in hard drugs.

He said: "I smoke my head off. I smoke weed all the time. There, you've got it.

"But that's all I take, all I do. I do smoke and I've got some really good hash."

Referring to his heavy drug use in the 60s and 70s, he added: "People thought I was going to die. I never did - as you can see. The drugs? Oh yeah, they were great.

"Now I'm on medication. Drugs now? It's a dodgy subject."

Keith's substance abuse earned him a notorious reputation as a hellraiser.

The 64-year-old rocker was arrested on five separate occasions for drug-related offences, and at one point was believed to have regular full-body blood transfusions to clean out his system.

Last year, Keith claimed to have snorted his late father's ashes.

I love Keef! He's living proof that the whole black & white "DRUGS ARE BAD" (except the profitable, taxed legal ones! hehe) is a bunch of bull.

The thing I cant figure out is why its described as a "confession". A confession is when you admit to doing something wrong. Potheads never confess or feel guilty because they know they're doing nothing wrong.
