Two decades ago Paul McCartney (79) began to be interested in organic products and to consider the possibility of cultivating them on his Peasmarsh farm, in England. Although at first he had to deal with the rejection of local farmers, who were convinced that their fields had been dead, today he has shown that he was not mistaken and that it is possible to establish a crop model without chemical pesticides.
"Actually we are starting to cultivate hemp, the most curious with government regulations, is that you have to keep it in a place where people can not see it because all young people come and steal it," he explained in statements to Daily Mirror.
Although technically comes from the same plant that cannabis, hemp has a lower concentration of the thc chemical, the main psychoactive compound of the plant, and is also used to manufacture products such as clothing or soap. In the past, Paul smoked cannabis often after Bob Dylan himself gave him to try this drug for the first time, but he left him a few years ago because he wanted to be a good example for the children and grandchildren of him.Updated Date: 09 October 2021, 10:30
