OZZY OSBOURNE Says He Believes Pot Leads To Other Addictions

Ozzy Osbourne says that the news that his son Jack was seeking treatment for substance abuse has taught him that all drugs should be completely banned.

"I used to think they should legalize pot, but you know what? They should ban the lot," Osbourne told MTV News. "One thing leads to another. Coffee leads to Red Bull, Red Bull leads to crank.

"When I found out the full depth of [Jack] getting into OxyContin, which is like hillbilly heroin, I was shocked and stunned," Osbourne continued. "The thing that's amazing was how rapidly he went from smoking pot to doing hillbilly heroin."

"When I started doing drugs years ago, they were hard to get, but today it's everywhere," Osbourne said. "It's not just America. It's not just California. It's not just Beverly Hills. It's not just downtown New York. It's not just London. It's all over the world."

"I'm 55 years old, and I didn't get off scot-free," Osbourne explained. "I have to take medication for the rest of my life because I've done so much neurological damage to my body."
