Louis: Boozing is worse than smoking weed
DOCUMENTARY maker Louis Theroux says he wants to make weed LEGAL and claims it’s no worse than alcohol.
Louis, 47 ( above), who is famous for his documentaries on celebs and global issues, said: “I used to smoke at parties, I’ve had a spliff. I’m in favour of legalising marijuana. It’s a more benign drug than alcohol.
“They say it’s a gateway drug, but if it was legal it would mark the boundary more clearly about where experimentation should stop.”
BBC filmmaker Louis has previously made documentaries about alcoholism as well as crystal meth addicts.
However, one of the episodes from his latest series, Dark States, focuses on the heroin epidemic gripping America.
His new three-part series also explores the gun capital of America, Milwaukee, and another episode shines a light on prostitutes and their pimps in the US.
Dark States begins on BBC2 on Sunday at 9pm. IT’S illegal in New York City to take a selfie with a tiger
