It’s now a parent thing: Paul McCartney on quitting marijuana

New Delhi, June 1 (IANS) The Beatles star Paul McCartney has revealed that he has given up marijuana.

“I don’t do it anymore,” he was quoted as saying on mirror.co.uk.

“Why? The truth is I don’t really want to set an example to my kids and grandkids. It’s now a parent thing.”

McCartney, 72, admitted that he was afforded his first taste of the drug by singer-songwriter Bob Dylan in 1964.

“Back then I was just some guy around London having a ball, and the kids were little so I’d just try and keep it out of their faces. Instead of smoking a spliff I’ll now have a glass of red wine or a nice margarita. The last time I smoked was a long time ago,” he added.
