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."

People really need to get a little perspective. It’s a doobie. He’s not sitting on his porch shooting at little kids with a sawed off shotgun. He’s not shooting up in his dressing room. Hell, he might not even have ever smoked weed. Everyone needs to calm down, look at the facts instead of the rumours, and cast judgment only if you are God.

Honestly, I’m much more upset knowing he smokes cigarettes than cannabis. Cigarettes will kill you! Cannabis will just make you stupid.

The Daily Mirror is almost as accurate as The Weekly World News. Is Bat boy in the picture, too?

If Dan ever does something horrible, report it and I will be saddened and shocked. This doesn’t qualify imo.

Well, it’s on the news on TV, so I think Leaky had to say SOMETHING about it. It’s not like Leaky said it happened…just that that magazine reported it, and Dan and his agent deny it…

Well, you know how to stop this: legalize it!

Well, Petra, people can manipulate photos so they look completely different than what they are. I saw in this magazine, a girl originally and then how they are completely changed so you would NEVER recognize them. But it is sad to know Daniel smokes anyway!

It’s funny that so many people are so appalled— like “oh my god, now I have to hate him!” It’s just pot, people, there are about 10 billion worse things you can be suspected of doing. If he’s getting splattered on tabloids for something as minor as pot, that probably means he’s about as squeaky clean as you get.

… and anyway, that boy is so high strung. He could use a little mellowing out xD
