Sir Paul McCartney needs to hide the cannabis plants to prevent them from being stolen.
The 79-year-old singer grows cannabis crops on his farm in Peasmarsh, but had to hide it to prevent local teenagers from helping them.
Government regulations stipulate that cannabis must be grown with rye, peas, and wheat crops, which Sir Paul does, but clearly special measures to retain cannabis. Is required.
Regarding the Daily Mirror, he said: “We grow crops. We like to grow spelled, rye, peas and more.
“We’re just really starting to grow hemp. What’s interesting about government regulation is that every child gets in and robs it, so we have to keep it in a place where people can’t see it. That’s it! “
Technically from the same plant as cannabis, hemp has a much lower THC chemical and is used in the manufacture of products such as clothing and soap.
And Sir Paul says he has grown organic farm products for 20 years. This concept was initially rejected by a local farmer, but is now clearly closer to his thinking.
He said: “It’s organic.
“I became organic over 20 years ago.
“When I first bought the farm, there were some fields where people on my farm said,” There are no worms in these fields. There is no life. “
“It’s basically because all you did was add pesticides and then fertilizers.
“I thought,’OK, it’s a challenge, we’ll be organic.’
“I talked to a very good soil association and gave us some clues, so we became organic.
“A local farmer said,’Oh, you’re stupid, what are you doing there?’”
“Of course, they got it lately and they think it’s a good idea.”
Sir Paul had previously smoked cannabis, which was introduced to drugs by Bob Dylan, but gave up a few years ago because he wanted to set an example for his children and grandchildren.
