Although Paul McCartney has reportedly given up smoking pot well over a decade ago, the former-Beatle revealed he's now growing hemp. “Macca,” who's been busted for pot no less than five times over the years — with late-wife Linda copping to the grass during a 1975 L.A. traffic bust — spoke about the changes in how things are done today in regard to growing.
McCartney told The Daily Mail: “We're actually just getting into growing hemp, the funny thing with government regulations is you've got to keep it where people can't see it, because you get all the kids coming in and robbing it!'”
He went on to say, “It's organic. I went organic over 20 years ago. When I first bought the farm there were some fields where my farm guys would say, 'There's no worms in these fields. There's no life.' That's because basically all you did was put on pesticides and then put a fertilizer in. I thought, 'OK, that's a challenge, we're going to go organic.'”
