Willie Nelson talks cannabis with AARP
Texas music legend Willie Nelson recently sat down with AARP for an interview to talk about life, family, touring, and a number of other things. He also briefly discussed marijuana.
“I’ll probably take a couple of hits before or after the show tonight. It relaxes me, and the medicinal form of pot can cure everything from stress to cancer. It’s a shame that it was thrown in with the other hard drugs. Now that the legalization has proven successful in Colorado and in Washington state, it’s just a matter of time before it’s legal everywhere. There’s a lot of money to be made from it, number one.”
Nelson has never been bashful about his cannabis consumption and has talked positively about the ways it has helped him in life. Positive thinking has always been a major way of life for him, and marijuana very well could help contribute to that outlook.
Earlier this year, his daughter Paula was arrested for marijuana on April 20.
