In an interview for Marie Claire magazine, BBC television presenter Graham Norton tells it like it is: "I took ecstasy... It was absolutely amazing. It was just fantastic - really, really fun." And now he's taking the good news to the world - with a little help from his friends in the global media. Around the world, there are 39 stories on this topic (according to Google News), and Stuff.co.nz is among those running the story.
There are those who think the truth should not be told. A spokesman for the National Drug Prevention Alliance said, "He's in the public eye and influencing young people, so who is it helping? I don't know - I'm just staggered." You see, sometimes telling the truth sends the wrong message to young people. A sound fact is not always a solid idea.
"We're appalled, it's absolutely mind-blowing that somebody has said that," said the National Drug Prevention Alliance spokesman. Yes, that's right. Absolutely mind-blowing. A lot like ecstasy, then. You see, talking about drugs can be really, really fun, too. And blogging about them is just fantastic!
