Jade's drug claims

Jade Goody has told how she smoked her first marijuana joint at the age of five.
The 'Big Brother' star claims her mum Jackiey let her roll cannabis cigarettes and didn't tell her off when she tried one.
She says in 'Jade: My Autobiography', which is being serialised in Britain's News of the World newspaper: "I used to skin up for my mum even before she lost the use of her arm in a motorbike crash. I had my first puff when I was five. It was sitting in the ashtray so I picked it up and took a big long drag, just like I'd seen her and her mates do.
"She didn't tell me off either - she took a picture."
Jade, 24, has also accused her mother of beating her.
She said: "Losing the use of her arm after the accident was infuriating for my mum. As a result of her frustration she often beat me."
Jackiey has laughed off the allegations.
She told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I only hit her once. I've seen what she wrote. It's all there - you'll have to read the book."
