Performing at Clive Davis‘ pre-Grammy gala on Saturday, mere hours after the death of Whitney Houston, legendary crooner Tony Bennett called upon the government to legalize drugs. “First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse, now, the magnificent Whitney Houston,” Bennett observed. “I’d like to have every gentleman and lady in this room commit themselves to get our government to legalize drugs.”

“So you can get them from a doctor, not just some gangsters that sell it under the table,” Bennett continued.

“Let’s legalize drugs like they did in Amsterdam,” he added. “No one’s hiding or sneaking around corners to get it. They go to a doctor to get it.”
