Willie Nelson Has Stopped Smoking But Still Consumes Marijuana

Country music star Willie Nelson recently said that he has stopped “smoking” pot, but he did not reveal whether he stopped consuming marijuana entirely.

“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,” the Texas native told San Antonio’s ABC affiliate KSAT last week. “I don’t smoke anymore — take better care of myself.”

The longtime supporter of marijuana legalization did not reveal whether he has suspended other forms of recreational or medicinal use of the drug.

However, Nelson’s publicist Elaine Schock confirmed to USA Today that the singer still uses cannabis, but didn’t specify in what form.

“Willie does what he wants when he wants regarding smoking. There are numerous ways of consumption,” she said.

The country singer took up smoking marijuana after giving up cigarettes and whiskey in 1978.
