Reps for actor Dan Radcliffe have strongly denied allegations made in a UK tabloid involving an illegal substance. Reuters reports that the latest rumors surfaced in UK tabloid the Daily Mirror, claiming the Harry Potter actor smoked cannabis at a party. Reps for Dan are quoted as saying "We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today's Daily Mirror," his spokeswoman said in a statement on Friday. "Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this. We are considering our position and will be taking all necessary action in relation to such allegations."

I know this is garbage, and all, but I still couldn’t help myself in copying their front page. It’s like if a friend of mine was on the front page of the Enquirer.

i couldn’t believe it when i saw it because i sort of see Daniel as Harry. i kinda have realised there not the same person now though. i don’t really see the point of making such a big deal out of this now iv had time to think about it. as someone rightly said up the list that list
aw crap iv forgot what they said. but it suited what i thought

An actor involved with suspicion of using drugs?!? Shocking!

Okay, sarcasm aside, quite frankly I was a bit sad to hear this hit the news, true or not, because he really is a quite likable, talented kid. While I don’t firmly agree that cannabis is harmless, I do believe there are worse things, health-wise, to do. Hoping that this blows over quickly.

I really don’t like the tabloids. I am not even reading it. I do hope he never takes up smoking because of all the health issues.

man..will the media ever leave people alone….i hope it was merely his own cigarette, and not a joint just for the sake of the movie at this time, after DH is over i don’t think it will matter anymore, but for respect of Jo , i’d like to see him keep a low profile regarding his choice of tobacco…and if he hits the bud now and then it’s his choice …just looking out for the movie though….:D

Gawd, Dan is smoking… I’d rather he drink until he drop dead, not smoke.
