Lily Allen: Parents Should Tell Kids To Take Ecstasy

by | 15 February 2009

Parents should encourage their children to take drugs to discover the consequences themselves, according to Lily Allen.

The singer's comments come after the government opted to keep ecstasy as a class A drug.

Lily told a Dutch magazine over use of hard drugs: "Parents should say, 'Drugs might seem fun, but they do funny things to your brain. Some people react to it good, some don't. Try it and see what you think'."

The 23-year-old, currently riding high in the charts with new single The Fear, told Revu that she herself would have taken "loads" of ecstasy pills if her singing career had not taken off.

"Wouldn't be too wise right now," she added.

Lily went on to say: "I've never been good with cocaine or drugs like that. They make me passionately angry on everything. I steer clear of heroin or crack."
