The end of an era: the legendary Willie Nelson has stopped smoking marijuana.
To be clear, he said he would stop "Smoking" pot; he didn't say anything about vaping, eating, or use of medicated CBD ointment.
Country music icon Willie Nelson announced he is no longer smoking due to ongoing health and breathing issues.
Nelson is known for singing the virtues of smoking pot and even has his own line of marijuana products. On Friday, he spoke to CNN affiliate KSAT in San Antonio, Texas, where he performed.
“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, 86, said.
Nelson had to postpone the tail end of his tour in August due to breathing issues. He resumed the tour the next month.
