25 February 2012 - The 'Wolf Is Getting Married' singer - who has previously revealed a love of weed - admits her children, Jake, 24, Roisine, 15, Shane, seven and Yeshua, five, do not know she enjoys smoking dope because she does so in secret.
She said: "Oh the kids don't know I smoke dope! I just sneak down the garden. But kids now, they're very anti-drink and drugs and cigarettes."
However she admits she has a stricter view of her children smoking cannabis than she has on herself, because she is worried she would "lose them down a tunnel".
She told The Word magazine: "With the older one and his mates, yeah, they were smoking dope but they were 18, 19. And I was more worried they'd be out getting arrested. Which has happened.
28 Dec 2011 - It was a wild car ride around town in search of marijuana, that caused Sinéad O'Conners fourth marriage go up in smoke. The singer called it quits after just 16 days of marriage. O' Connor publishes a long explanation on her website explaining why the marriage is over. She says the marriage was on the rocks three hours after the ceremony due to negative reactions of the groom's friends and the wild ride O'Connor took him on.
"The marriage was kyboshed by the behavior of certain people in my husband’s life," she wrote on her blog Monday. "And also by a bit of a wild ride I took us on looking for a bit of a smoke of weed for me wedding night, as I don’t drink. She shared that her husband was negatively impacted by that incident. "My husband was enormously wounded and very badly effected by that experience and also by the attitude of those close to him toward our marriage", she writes.
Her soon-to-be ex, Barry Herridge, a Dublin-based addiction counselor for children, apparently had a major problem with her getting hot for pot shortly after the couple was driven down the aisle of a Las Vegas chapel in the back of a pink Cadillac.
The controversial singer wrote that she and Herridge had lived together as man and wife for just seven days before ending their relationship for good on Christmas Eve. O'Connor met Herridge after posting a plea for sex on twitter and it was just three months after that the couple decided to tie the knot. She admits that they rushed into the marriage too soon.

5 Dec 2011 - Former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Igor Olshansky has been arrested on a marijuana possession charge at his Fort Lauderdale condo on Thursday afternoon. The Broward Sheriff's Office, participating in a multi-agency drug operation, says the 29-year-old Olshansky was charged after he was seen rolling a marijuana cigarette on his kitchen table.
Detectives were at Point of Americas conducting a separate investigation that resulted in the arrest of Olshansky's friend, David Alan Martin (32), on a marijuana possession charge, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Dani Moschella. But at some point, detectives also saw Olshansky with marijuana and arrested him, too, Moschella said.
A Ukraine native, Olshansky was released this week by the Dolphins. The 6-foot-5, 300-pound lineman has also played for the Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers over eight NFL seasons.
It wasn't clear if Olshansky had hired a lawyer.
