He recommends a legal way of getting high - and staying slim

He’s led a crusade against junk food and now all-round good bloke Jamie Oliver is tackling drug abuse.

The celeb chef, 32, has recommended taking chillies as an alternative way to get high.

‘Chillis have got a chemical called capsicum inside them which is very, very similar to morphine,’ says Jamie.

‘It speeds up your metabolism by 25% so it is good for not storing fat and all that business.

‘All these kids doing these drugs and stuff have got it wrong. You don’t need opium and all that stuff, you can eat chillis and it’s legal.’

Chillis make you thin and get you high? Girls, time to buy some Scotch Bonnets.

(But watch out, they’re hot, hot, hot!)
