Coke up as actors drop spliff.



A CHARACTER in a Fringe play has switched from a smoke to coke to beat the lighting up ban.

In previous productions he lit a joint on stage. But at Edinburgh's C Venue he has to act snorting cocaine.

The switch to a class A drug has been made by the cast of Tom Stoppard Noun 1. Tom Stoppard - British dramatist (born in Czechoslovakia in 1937)

Director Ben Waring said a key characteristic of Rosencrantz and the reason for his erratic behaviour is down to constant cannabis smoking Cannabis smoking is the practice of using some form of combustion in order to release and vaporize the psychoactive chemicals of cannabis as smoke-like particles. The primary constituent of these drugs is THC found in the Cannabis plant. .

He said of the ban: "It is the loss of liberty that is most disappointing."

Last week Mel Smith backed down over a threat to defy the ban in his stage portrayal of cigar-toting PM Winston Churchill.

TICKET sales for the Festival have hit pounds 2million, two weeks earlier than last year.
