Buy him mirrors instead...

Lee 'Scratch' Perry has asked fans to stop buying him weed.

The dub reggae icon was a prodigious smoker, having penned entire albums in tribute to the inspiration powers of green.

Not any more, though; he's completely clean, and has previously stated that he doesn't even smoke any more.

Enthusiastic fans still bring him joints, however, so Scratch has taken to social media to ask that they cease and desist.

Want to get him a present? Buy the producer a mirror so he can decorate his onstage outfits.

Lee 'Scratch' Perry will release new album 'Rainford' on May 10th.
