    STING CAMPAIGNS FOR CANNABIS
    Rocker Sting is campaigning to stop British prime minister Tony Blair from upgrading the legal categorisation of cannabis from a class C to class B drug.
    The Roxanne hitmaker fears the political leader is planning a high-profile policy u-turn which will see him vow to tackle drug use head-on and reclassify the drug, despite officially downgrading it from class B to its current status in January.
    Sting, 54, has added his signature to a letter for Blair alongside those of actress Jean Simmons and former Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp, insisting the reclassification has been a success, saving up to 200,000 hours of police time.
    The letter reads: "Such a move would simply add to public confusion, inconsistency and the waste of police resources, without delivering any health or social benefits."

    Sting's a legend. Is there anything he can't do?

    He can't sell me on any album that he's made since he left "The Police."
    He can't make me believe that any of the music he's come up with since then is worth more than half-a-shit.

    THAT's what he "can't" do!

    Still, I'm glad that his celebrity can help call atention to the issue.

    Some of his music you just have to get... really stoned... to enjoy. Then again that doesn't mean he has talent on his own.


    Anyway's, maybe I will pick up an album if he's doing something like this.
