Legendary singer Tony Bennett has a message for the people and the U.S. Government.  In a Whitney Houston tribute speech on Saturday night, Tony Bennett made a shocking statement and urged everyone to begin campaigning for this…..

Tony Bennett stated this….

“First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse, now, the magnificent Whitney Houston….I’d like every person in this room to campaign to legalize drugs.  Let’s legalize drugs like they did in Amsterdam,” said Bennett, who battled drug addiction in the late 70s. “No one’s hiding or sneaking around corners to get it. They go to a doctor to get it.”

Whitney Houston was supposed to appear at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party on Saturday evening.  Tony Bennett went on to perform How Do You Keep The Music Playing in honor of Whitney Houston.  Bennet said, “This is a song Frank Sinatra asked me to sing,” Bennett told the crowd. “I’d like to dedicate it to Whitney. When I first heard her, I called Clive Davis and said, ‘You finally found the greatest singer I’ve ever heard in my life.”
