Drug plea: Amanda Seyfried

Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has backed the legalisation of cannabis, even though she does not use it herself.

The Hollywood star, who plays a bong-smoking lawyer in Seth MacFarlane's profane teddy bear sequel Ted 2, said the drug can be used responsibly and questioned why it is seen as worse than alcohol.

Seyfried, who played Sophie Sheridan in Mamma Mia!, told the Sunday Times she did not use the drug, saying it would be "the worst thing ever for me" because she suffers from anxiety attacks.

The 29-year-old Red Riding Hood and Lovelace star added: "But I think it's a wonderful thing, and lots of people use it responsibly, and it should be legal."
