Willie Nelson says he has puffed his final joint.
The country music legend and longtime marijuana legalization advocate, still touring at 86, told San Antonio’s television station KSAT that for health reasons, he no longer smokes marijuana.
“I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful……….. I don’t smoke anymore. I take better care of myself today.”Willie Nelson
Nelson talked about his long history of smoking, saying he had “mistreated” his body since he was young, growing up in Abbott, Texas.
“I wouldn’t have lived 85 years if I’d have kept drinking and smoking like I was when I was 30, 40 years old. I think that weed kept me from wanting to kill people. And probably kept a lot of people from wanting to kill me, too — out there drunk, running around.”Willie Nelson
