Willie Nelson Has Quit Smoking Marijuana


I never thought I’d type this sentence but Country music legend and marijuana supporter Willie Nelson has quit smoking weed.

Nelson, 86, cited personal health concerns for making the surprising change to his daily habit said, “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,” according to the USA TODAY.

“I don’t smoke anymore. I take better care of myself today.”

Nelson didn’t say how he consumes cannabis now but there are plenty of options given his personal brand, Willie’s Reserve, sells cannabis in edible and vape cartridge form as well as flower. Elaine Schock, Willie Nelson’s publicist, told USA Today, “Willie does what he wants when he wants regarding smoking,” she said in an emailed statement. “There are numerous ways of consumption.”
