British X Factor Star Supports Cannabis Legalization in UK

The star of the United Kingdom’s talent show Honey D, whose real name is Anna Gilford, recently shared that she had done class A drugs such as cocaine and pills. She even had done magic mushroom and, as she told The Sun newspaper, it had been one of her worst experiences.

Saying that she is hardcore and a totally real person, this wannabe rapper and a recruiting consultant from London in ordinary life confessed that she had started using drugs while studying at the Salford University. Honey D also revealed that it happened after she had been kidnapped and sexually assaulted.

The X Factor contestant stated that she had always struggled with drug addiction. She stressed that she did not use Class A drugs anymore. Anna confirmed that nowadays she still smoked cannabis, but very occasionally, socially, and not at home, as she is afraid of becoming hooked.

As soon as Honey D made her revelation, some of Gilford’s fans were outraged and decided that she should be removed from the show. They considered that it was not fair to allow this star to stay in X Factor as former contestants such as Frankie Cocozza were booted from the show for drugs.

Nevertheless, Honey D is still there, and many people think that she has made a promise not to use drugs inside the house where all the contestants live. At least one of the show spokespersons informed that the rapper assured X Factor bosses that she would not take any drugs while participating in the song contest.

In her recent interview with The Mirror, the X Factor fan favorite said that she would support the idea of marijuana legalization in the United Kingdom as many people use cannabis for medical purposes. The rapper does not object to people smoking marijuana. To her mind, it is very liberating.

It should be said that according to the UK’s classification, marijuana is considered a class B drug, the possession of which is punishable by imprisonment for up to five years.

After proclaiming her support for cannabis legalization and her own drug admission, it becomes interesting whether Honey D will remain the member of the X Factor team or not.
