Los Angeles, July 27 (IANS) Musician Keith Richards says he usually starts his day with “an early morning joint”, despite claiming he had give up all illegal substances back in 2010.
The Rolling Stones rocker has confessed he still regularly smokes cannabis and is pleased that more American states are legalising the drug even though he is unconvinced of its benefits.
“I smoke regularly, an early morning joint. Strictly Californian. One of the most pleasant things to watch is a map of America (showing states where cannabis is legal), where it goes, green… green… green. Whether it’s a good thing in the long run, I don’t know,” he told Mojo magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 71-year-old guitarist gave up heroin in 1978, cocaine in 2006 and eventually claimed he had “given up everything” in 2010, with his latest comments suggesting he has since been lured back to smoking cannabis.
