Washington, Mar 8 : Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has challenged the smoking ban in the UK, insisting it to be a drag and "political bulls**t".
The 64-year-old rocker has been constantly breaking the ban introduced in July last year.
"It's a bit of a drag because you've got to freeze your balls off to light a cigarette. You've got to go outside," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"It's draconian, social, politically correct bulls**t. "They'll get over it. It's like prohibition, they tried to stop booze once. Ha! Look what happened. It ruined America.
"I smoke my head off. I smoke weed all the damn time," he added.
