    Sir Paul quits cannabis "for young daughter's sake"

    I'm finally giving up cannabis for my little girl says Macca as Beatrice forces the 69-year-old to grow up (Daily Mail)
    He was a drug-taking hippy at the heart of the Sixties revolution.

    But Paul McCartney has finally decided to call time on his past – and quit smoking cannabis.

    The former Beatle said he had developed a ‘sense of responsibility’ while raising his eight-year-old daughter, Beatrice.

    Good for him, he will be absolutely clear headed. I smoked it for years and couldn't believe the difference when I stopped. I now value my clear mind

    Me too, but more in the form of George's passion for hashish.

    George's dentist introduced the Beatles to LSD. Rather abruptly.

    The scene: a two-bedroom flat near Bayswater Place, April 1965:
    It had been an inconsequential evening of socialising shared by George Harrison, John Lennon, their wives Cynthia Lennon and Patti Boyd and George's dentist, who had just drifted over their social horizon. Then the five, accompanied by the dentist's wife, adjourned from the small dining room to the lounge, where the dentist slipped LSD - a substance then as little known to the Beatles as to most in Britain - into their coffees.
