The 69-year-old music legend is quitting weed because he wants to be a responsible dad for his little girl!

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Sir Paul McCartney makes a shocking announcement — After smoking marijuana since the 1960s, he’s finally giving it up for good! His 8-year-old daughter Beatrice inspired him to stop. “I smoked my share,” he says. “When you’re bringing up a youngster, your sense of responsibility does kick in, if you’re lucky, at some point.”

Sir Paul has gotten into trouble so many times over the years for his drug use, but he kept up with the habit until now. “Enough’s enough — you just don’t seem to think it’s necessary,” he explains.

Beatrice has also inspired the musician to make his tours shorter and schedule around his custody arrangement with ex Heather Mills. “What we do now is events and selective dates,” he says. “Because of my custody situation, I can only do that. At first, we thought ‘Oh, God, is this going to be a problem?’ and it’s actually turned out to be some kind of a blessing.”

We’re so glad Paul is  finally giving up the drugs!

He should never have carried on taking drugs as soon as he found out he was going to be a father. Simple as that. Parents that take any sort of illegal substances when they have kids are abhorant. So no praise from me, idiot should have thought of his daughter from the moment of conception, not now, 8 years afetr birth!

Those drugs were very important to the success of the Beatles… especially their later work. Just imagine how many of those songs were influential to future artists even through today, and yet they were all written under the influence of drugs. Anyone against Paul based on his drug history should consider this: your favorite artists likely draws some inspiration in some form (maybe by the transitive property) from songs Paul and John wrote under the influence of drugs.
