Jason Castro: I've Never Been High, Man

by at .

As you debate which American Idol finalist will be voted off tonight - David Cook, David Archuleta or Syesha Mercado - contemplate the following question:

Has last week's eliminated contestant, Jason Castro, ever been on drugs?

The dreadlocked singer says no, he's never been high. Seems kinda hard to believe, doesn't it?

Totally Stoned

"I think that, especially with things like [Idol], people like to stereotype so easily. Just because a guy is really easy going... People have always said that [about me]," Castro said.

"When I was younger I was real hyper and they'd think I was always drunk and I had never had a drink of alcohol until, like, last year. But the fact is I've never been high in my life."

Do you believe Jason Castro?
