Jewel also said Roberts had “quite an outburst” as he was escorted out of the press conference.
“I’m just a f….g addict. They want to waste resources on addicts, they want to punish addicts this is ridiculous. What about the f…..g importers? I wasn’t going to sell it to anyone here, no one was going to use it here. This is ridiculous. This is an embarrassment.”
