Olivia Culpo, who was crowned Miss Universe 2012, is already putting her newfound power to good use.

Firm stance:Olivia Culpo has spoken out about the use of marijuana for recreational purposes

In an interview with Fox & Friends, the former Miss USA confirmed her firm stance against cannabis, also known as marijuana, for recreational use.Speaking on the show, the 20-year-old beauty queen said: ‘I think that for medical purposes it is okay, but I don’t think that it’s good for recreational purposes. There’s just too many bad habits that go with the drug.’

It’s not the first time the brunette has spoken out about her feelings towards marijuana legalisation.

Speaking during a recent Huffington Post Live chat, Miss Culpo said: ‘I think that pot, marijuana for medical purposes is understandable, but I don’t think that it should be legalized for recreational purposes because it has been proven to prevent people from their full potential.’

She added: ‘I don’t think that’s a good thing for society. If we’re trying to move things forward, a drug like marijuana does the opposite. It will slow things down.’

And Boston University student Culpo, who beat 88 other beauty queens to take the title during a two-hour competition at the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip, isn’t the first Miss Universe who is against the drug.

California girl Alyssa Campanella, who took last year’s crown, also conveyed her anti-marijuana legalisation stance in the final rounds of the 2011 Miss USA pageant.
