After being accused of a “druggie,” Paris Jackson took to her Twitter to defend herself.
The 21-year old daughter of the late Michael Jackson admitted that she used marijuana as medicine and wrote, “Because an organic medicinal plant from mother earth with dozens of healing properties that is legal where i live and used to help suffering people around the world = meth.“Instead of taking poisonous addictive pharmaceuticals, this incredible medicine from the earth has been prescribed to me to help with my depression, anxiety, ptsd, and insomnia.
It was when Jackson had been asked by a fan for her receipt for “spaghetti grilled cheese sandwiches with mozerella (sic),” to which she tweeted back “marijuana.”
Another Twitter user replied and called her a “druggie” and said “I bet you do meth too. Your dad must be ashamed of you. Degenerate.” This was the tweet that prompted Jackson to defend her use.
To another Twitter user, Jackson wrote, “Well doing it every day dude is clearly an issue. i don’t do it as soon as i wake up unless it’s a rare occasion. i don’t do it when i work and i don’t do it when i drive. it’s medicine to me and not an every day thing. even tho its not addictive it sounds like u were abusing it.”
