Celebrities and drugs

Celebrities who commit drug-related offences should be punished more harshly than non-celebrities.

It is clear that young people today look up to celebrities. Magazines; the Internet; television; radio; posters; any form of media you name, there will be 'celebrities' there somewhere. Children and young people are constantly bombarded with images of what to be. Already, two-thirds of mothers feel they can't compare to celebrities. And celebrities continually flaunt the system when it comes to drugs. Pete Doherty and Kate Moss snort cocaine. Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears drunkenly drive. Yet little or no action is taken. When an average person is caught drunkenly driving, they can expect fines and possible a custodial sentence. Paris Hilton was in jail for less than an hour before being released. What image does this set for young people? The media shows people committing drug-related offences and getting away with it, and hence it makes it socially acceptable for young people. Celebrities need harsher punishments to show young people that taking drugs is in no way acceptable.

10. Hilton

28 August 2010,
LAS VEGAS - Police say Paris Hilton has been arrested for possession of cocaine after officers stopped the car she was in on a Las Vegas street late Friday night.

Public Information officer Marcus Martin says Hilton was booked into the Clark County Detention Center early Saturday morning on a charge of possession of cocaine.

He says she was in a car driven by a friend that was stopped when officers noticed what they suspected to be marijuana smoke coming from it.

Martin says that during the stop officers found what appeared to be a controlled substance on Hilton and tests showed that it was cocaine.

UPDATE: 22 SEPT 2010
Japan bars Paris Hilton from entering country

Paris Hilton was denied entrance into Japan on Wednesday, two days after she pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge in Las Vegas.

Japan has strict immigration laws that bar entry to those convicted of drug offenses, although exceptions are occasionally granted.
Just before taking off, Hilton tweeted a message to her fans.
"Going home now. So disappointed to miss my fans in Asia. I promise to come back soon. I love you all! Love Paris xoxo."

“I’m going back home, and I look forward to coming back to Japan in the future,” a smiling Hilton said to reporters at Tokyo’s airport.

The 29-year-old celebrity socialite was supposed to promote her fashion and fragrance lines at a news conference Wednesday morning in Tokyo. She arrived Tuesday evening but was stopped at the airport and spent the night at a hotel there after being questioned by officials.

The move also abruptly canceled Hilton’s planned appearances in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Jakarta, Indonesia.

Hilton’s publicist Dawn Miller wrote in a statement that Hilton plans to make the trips at a later date.

“Paris is very disappointed and fought hard to keep her business commitments and see her fans, but she is forced to postpone her commitments in Asia,” Miller’s statement, sent as Hilton’s flight left, said. “Paris understands and respects the rules and laws of the immigration authorities in Japan and fully wishes to cooperate with them.”

A Japanese immigration official said she was denied entry Wednesday after a total of about six hours of questioning over the two days. The country has taken a tough line with famous figures in the past, although it also grants exceptions on occasion.
