Kelly Clarkson supports marijuana decriminalisation

Kelly Clarkson says the fact that alcohol is legal but marijuana is against the law doesn't stack up.

The singer told Billboard that she feels drink often does more harm that pot.

She said: "I'm not even a pothead, I just think it's funny that we legalise something as destructive as alcohol or pills and not that.

"Don't get me wrong, I love me some alcohol, but I don't know anybody in rehab because of pot. And I know a ton of people that have died either from liver cancer or behind the wheel.

"We legalise things that are so disturbing for our bodies, but one that's completely fine, we say, 'No, that's bad for you.' I'm like, 'Okay, enjoy your scotch. Enjoy your (anti-anxiety medication) Xanax'."

Clarkson meanwhile released her latest album 'Piece By Piece' earlier this year.
