McCartney says gave up smoking to set example.

New York (cm): At 72 years young former Beatle Paul McCartney has put his wild days behind him, admitting that the last time he smoked cannabis was ‘a long time ago.’ Speaking to The Mirror newspaper, Sir Paul revealed that these days he’s now more likely to be caught having ‘a glass of wine or a nice margarita’, rather than smoking a spliff. ‘I don’t do that anymore.The former Beatle, who turns 73 in June and has five children and eight grandchildren, recently spoke to the Daily Mirror about how he cut out the drug “a long time ago”. “I don’t do it anymore,” McCartney is quoted as saying. “Why? He said on Saturday his decision is “a parent thing.” 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. I actually learned it in the 60s, it was a yoga thing, and my argument is I need flexibility not strength,’ McCartney said. ‘But what’s cool about it is that I’ll be in the gym with all these guys doing really big weights, whilst I’m there doing not big weights, and afterwards, when I’ve done my headstand for about five minutes, these big guys will come up to me and say, ‘That was pretty impressive, man!’ Speaking about his fitness routine Macca said, ‘I feel pretty fit.

I’ll just watch what the trainers do and then copy them.’ ‘I do a bit of the cross-trainer, a bit of running, a bit of cardio and then I do some weights, some abs on the Swiss ball, before ending up on the mat doing a few stretches,’ the singer added. ‘And then standing on my head.’
