Australian singer/songwriter Tom Huddleston gets high on marijuana
Posted On July 21, 2021
AUSTRALIAN singer/singers Tom Huddleleston is being hailed as a hero after he successfully tested positive for cannabis following his recent trip to a dispensary.
The 34-year-old, who was the subject of a popular Australian documentary series, posted a video of himself smoking a joint to Instagram on Friday, showing him in a dark suit and tie.
The video, titled “I’ll Be Here” appeared to be a response to Australia’s controversial new medical cannabis law, which allows anyone with a debilitating medical condition to use cannabis.
However, the video quickly drew a slew of negative comments, with some saying he had made a “bad choice”.
Mr Huddlsons comments were the latest in a string of celebrity marijuana arrests, which have also included former NFL player LaVar Arrington and rapper Snoop Dogg.
Mr Huddlelsons lawyer, Nick Raine, told news.com.au the star was taking medication and was not under the influence of cannabis.
“Tom has been prescribed a range of medication and he is currently in the process of being treated for a number of serious health issues,” Mr Raine said.
“His medication is not a controlled substance and he has no prescription for it.”
He has no interest in harming himself, he is just trying to get his mind back to normal.
“Mr Huddyleston said he had smoked cannabis before, and was unaware of any problems related to the drug.”
The doctor I spoke to said that he’d smoked cannabis in the past and I don’t recall ever seeing anything like this,” Mr Huddleson said.
Mr Raine declined to elaborate on the medication the singer was taking, but he said Mr Huddleleson had received “significant treatment” for mental health issues, and his treatment had been “much better than what I was expecting”.
Mr Rabin said Mr Riddell was taking the medication “to help him recover”.”
Tom is recovering quite well and has been taking medication that he needs to keep his brain functioning, but it has been very good and he’s still doing very well,” Mr Baine said in an interview with News Corp.”
I’m very optimistic that he’s going to get through this and get well soon, hopefully within the next few weeks.
“Mr Riddells lawyer, Ian Neely, said his client was “optimistic” about his recovery.”
We’re optimistic that Tom will get through it and that he’ll be well,” he said.
Mr Neely said his clients medical conditions did not “make him a criminal”.”
He’s not a drug dealer, he’s not on drugs, he doesn’t have a criminal history, he has nothing to hide,” he told News Corp on Friday.
Mr Nellys client is expected to appear in court next month.
