Communists Pursuing the Arrest of Sting


Sting


The Communists of St. Petersburg and Leningrad would like to prevent the singer, who is campaigning for marijuana legalization, from taking the stage in Russia.

Rocker Sting is facing calls for his arrest while touring Russia after he promoted the use of marijuana. The "Every Breath You Take" singer posted controversial comments on his blog in April, insisting the use of cannabis should be legalized.

But the comments have come back to haunt him as he tours the former Soviet Union - radical left-wing Communists urged authorities to take him into custody before his gig in Moscow on Wednesday, September 15, according to Britain's Daily Mail. The Communists of St. Petersburg and Leningrad say in a statement, "In April 2010, Mister Sting publicly called for the worldwide legalization of marijuana."

"Not only communists, but everyone in favor of a healthy way of life, the strengthening of our nation's culture and tradition must understand that such a figure, however talented screaming teens may consider him, can not appear on stage in the Russian Federation."
