Veteran rocker Sting has blown apart his clean-cut image - by extolling the virtues of marijuana.

The ROXANNE singer - who is married to film producer TRUDI STYLER - has argued drugs are not as dangerous as politicians say and that he is living proof they don't kill you.

And Sting - who admits he has consumed more drugs than many addicts - says his sex life has never been impaired by his enthusiasm for banned substances.

Sting says, "I've had numerous experiences with drugs. I can smoke marijuana and not lose my head. I'm still having excellent sex."
