    McCartney says he's given up pot now that he's a granddad

    LONDON (AP) — Paul McCartney says he has given up marijuana after many years of indulgence and now prefers wine or "a nice margarita."

    The former Beatle told the Daily Mirror he doesn't want to set a bad example for his children and grandchildren by using marijuana. He said Saturday his decision is "a parent thing."

    He says "the last time I smoked was a long time ago."

    McCartney had been a long-time marijuana user who spent 10 nights in jail after he was arrested trying to enter Japan with a large quantity of the drug in 1980.

    The 72-year-old British rock/pop star is fit and has long advocated a vegetarian lifestyle. He continues to perform for adoring crowds worldwide.

    Good for him, inhaling disgusting smoke in your body is so stupid to me.

    Either way I wait until the kids are in bed or not around to indulge in the herb or booze. But I would rather have a stoner around my kids than a drunk. I make the worst decisions on alcohol.

    He's going senile if he thinks drinking is setting a better example than smoking weed. I don't even smoke the shit but it doesn't take rocket appliances to see that plant is a gift from god.

    ...Seriously, its a miracle plant. Male and female.

    Kanye probably suggested it as a prank. He says jump, Paul says "how high?"

    But how is it a "parent" thing when your kids are already grown-up? You already set the stoner example, dipshit. God, I miss Lennon.

    It's a good lesson in life for the children. "See kids, if PaPa hadn't smoked all of that pot, maybe he could have made something of his life instead of being one of the richest and most beloved entertainers in the world."
