Worried parents have expressed concerns after a video surfaced online apparently showing One Direction member Zayn Malik smoking cannabis.
Some discussing the issue on parenting website Netmums said they feared their children would now think of drugs as "cool".
I have no idea how I am going to broach this subject with [my] 13 year old [...]
Tell me how I answer her questions later when she comes to me and says 'but 1D were doing it'.
Don't really see it as a big deal to be honest. They were in Peru where it's not illegal to posses a small amount of cannabis (according to the article), so technically they weren't doing anything illegal.
Not a big deal and I do think that there nothing wrong with it HOWEVER they are role models to very very young children and as such think it's idiotic that this video has got out.
I know for a fact my 6 [year] old would think it was cool if she saw One Direction doing it!
