Country fans everywhere are furious after Willie Nelson’s latest post. This is not what country music stands for!
Willie Nelson is a country music legend and he always will be one of our favorites. Unfortunately, he stands for something that not many country fans agree with and that is smoking marijuana. Now after his latest post on social media fans are raging mad at him.
Since Nelson was in his younger years he has always been very open about the fact that he smokes weed. In one of his autobiographies Nelson even talked about smoking weed on the roof of the White House with Jimmy Carter’s son.
“Nelson has told this story in his autobiographies and cagily acknowledged it in endless TV interviews. In his 1988 autobiography he describes being up there “with a beer in one hand and a fat Austin Torpedo in the other,” enjoying a view you can get from nowhere else of how Washington’s principal streets fan out from the White House. In the 2015 version he describes “a friend of mine who happened to be a White House insider” coming to his bedroom door at the end of the night and offering him a private tour, which took them to the roof.”
Growing older didn’t stop him either in fact, just a couple of months ago Loretta Lynn confessed that he made her try marijuana the last time they recorded together. Nelson convinced the 84-year-old star to try it for the first time and she wasn’t too impressed with it.
Lynn spoke with PEOPLE saying that she liked to have died after taking a puff of the “cigarette” that they gave her. Not only that, but she is one who says she sees nothing wrong with him smoking pot.
“I got glaucoma and they gave me one of these cigarettes,” Lynn tells People in an interview. “I took one smoke off of it and it hit me right here in the chest. I like to have died! Glaucoma is just going to have to take over. He’s one of the greatest people in the whole world. I know he smokes pot, but my goodness, there’s a lot people doing a lot worse than smoking pot!”
Since he is so in love with smoking marijuana he has even created a website to help his fans find the best pot out there called Willie’s Reserve. Because of his interest in pot he has even became close friends with famous rapper Snoop Dogg.
Now, to the thing that has fans everywhere mad. Willie Nelson posted a picture of himself wearing a sweater that says “Smoke weed everyday” and said thanks to Snoop Dogg for the gift. Everyone is so mad.
