“I don’t think smoking the occasional spliff is all that wrong. I’d rather my son did it in front of me than behind closed doors.”

In the interview with Piers Morgan for GQ magazine, the entrepreneur also admitted trying cocaine and ecstasy.

He said: “I took ecstasy once. But it didn’t have a massive effect on me”. Of cocaine, he said: “I suspect I’ve tried it, yes.”
