Lady Gaga says went "cold turkey" to break marijuana habit

LONDON - Lady Gaga was smoking as many as 15 joints a day to help relieve the pain of a hip injury before a friend made her abruptly quit marijuana, the flamboyant pop singer says in an interview in British gay magazine Attitude.

The singer had what she had said was a "huge breakage" in her right hip earlier this year that forced her to cancel about two dozen concerts and undergo surgery.
