Prime Minister Condemns Drug Abusing Celebrities
United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordom Brown has attacked the despicable behavior of celebrity drug abusers.
He condemned celebrities who think they are above the law and pleaded with them to start behaving like proper role models.
Brown's comments came as it emerged the UK to also considering raising tax on alcohol in a move to curb underage drinking.
Brown called for teens to follow sober stars such as Kelly Holmes, double Olympic gold medal winner.
He told a 'Listen to Britain' conference at the weekend that youth should be taught about the dangers of drugs from as early as the age of seven.
The Prime Minister said, "We have got celebrities who take a very casual attitude to drugs, who think their standing makes them above the law."
"It makes a difference if sports stars and pop stars are able to say to young people that winners don't take drugs."
Ministers are deciding whether to use next year's budget to introduce the first real duty increase on alcohol in ten years.
They also want markets to increase prices beyond the pockets of children.
