Relax, Willie Nelson Didn’t Give Up Marijuana

From The Shepherd Express:

“Willie Nelson stopped smoking marijuana” was the top news of the week for anyone interested in the industry, even making its way to mainstream news sources. After all, the beloved country musician is a lifelong activist for the legalization of marijuana, one of the world’s best-known potheads and owner of a legal marijuana brand, Willie’s Reserve. He is also, allegedly, the only man alive able to out-smoke Snoop Dogg. That is to say, it was a shock when the Red Headed Stranger publicly announced that he stopped smoking.
"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,” Nelson said in an interview with KSAT. “I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever, and that almost killed me.” He added, “I don’t smoke anymore—take better care of myself today.” Of course, the headlines came out immediately, claiming Willie Nelson was done with pot.
However, the marijuana icon is still getting high, his son confirmed in a Wednesday, Dec. 4, tweet: “There is a lot of articles going around saying my father is no longer smoking weed. It’s almost 2020, how people ingest cannabis has changed. Between vaping, edibles, gummies, drops, etc. I think it’s safe to say Willie will never stop enjoying Mary Jane!” The sentiment was echoed through the Associated PressWillie’s Reserve also took to social media, proudly claiming that Nelson will “never stop” enjoying marijuana: “No pigs in the sky, Willie’s still getting high! At 86, Willie Nelson demonstrates there’s more than one way to get high.”
