Kristen Stewart's Controversial Drug Confession Is Really Refreshing

Eye Roll 45

kristen stewart on cover of vanity fairI get the impression Kristen Stewart doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. (And I'd venture to guess that includes moms who are irritated that their tween and teen daughters are looking up to her.) Because in her latest interview, in Vanity Fair, KStew mouthed off about a bevy of things, including her penchant for smoking pot.

Discussing how the media jumped all over her when she initially made headlines for being cast as Bella in the first installment of the Twilight franchise, she mentioned that anyone who wants to can Google images of her smoking up with her ex-boyfriend and dog. She says, "It was taken the day the movie came out. I was no one. I was a kid. I had just turned 18." And from that point on, she claims "it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot." But that's not the case, she argues. No, no. Instead, KStew describes herself as "kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot. Big deal."

As irritating as she can be when giving interviews or accepting awards all on her lonesome, and whether or not she's as "creative" as she claims to be, KStew has a very solid point ... about the pot smoking, that is. It's unfair to label her a delinquent or an idiot for doing what plenty of young adults and Hollywood stars do. Oh sure, getting stoned's not the absolute healthiest activity she could be participating in. Getting "caught" drinking green juice or obsessively going to and from Pilates (kind of like another seemingly troubled young star we've see so much of lately, huh?) would be much better for her and socially acceptable.

But it's not like she's a heroin addict (although, it appeared she was attempting to pull off heroin chic at the MTV Movie Awards) or even snorting coke on occasion (as Lady Gaga has admitted to doing). As far as we know, she isn't suffering from an eating disorder like 75 percent of her peers or engaging in self-abuse. By comparison, recreational pot use looks oh-so-innocent.

And that said, KStew's confession that she's a "weirdo" who likes weed should really be no cause for concern. On the contrary, she deserves props for coming clean about enjoying something that's way too often overblown as a taboo vice.

Does Kristen Stewart's pot smoking shock or bother you?

I've said it before and I'll say it again. She's minding her own business, smoking a little pot. If she had a newborn and was shooting up heroin? Then we would have issues. LEAVE HER ALONE!

I really like her. She always seems so cool, calm and collected. She knows who she is, doesn't apologize for it and is comfortable in her own skin.

Good for her!

As long as she isn't hurting anyone, it's none of their concern. I would be more worried about my kids looking up to the Disney stars then her. Lol

She seems like a nice person :3

Pot is 20x more deadly than cigarettes because it is unfiltered. Shame on Kristen Stewart for her ignorance.

Most people (88 per cent) believe smoking cigarettes is worse than cannabis, but in fact the risk of developing lung cancer is 20 times greater from a cannabis joint than a legal tobacco cigarette, according to a new report from the British Lung Foundation (BLF).

The report highlights an alarming disconnect between the public perception of cannabis as a relatively safe drug, and the serious, potentially fatal impact it can have on the lungs of people who smoke it.

Dame Helena Shovelton, chief executive of the BLF, said: “It is alarming that, while new research continues to reveal the multiple health consequences of smoking cannabis, there is still a dangerous lack of public awareness of quite how harmful this drug can be.

“Young people in particular are smoking cannabis unaware that, for instance, each cannabis cigarette they smoke increases their chances of developing lung cancer by as much as an entire packet of 20 tobacco cigarettes.”
