    Willie Nelson says he has puffed his final joint.
    The country music legend and longtime marijuana legalization advocate, still touring at 86, told San Antonio's television station KSAT that for health reasons, he no longer smokes marijuana.

    “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 the interview. “I don’t smoke anymore. I take better care of myself today."

    Nelson talked about his long history of smoking, saying he had "mistreated" his body since he was young, growing up in Abbott, Texas.

    “I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever,” he said. “And that almost killed me.”

    .......There's always edibles Willie.

    But I thought all the pot advocates claim it's harmless and HELPS those with breathing difficulties?

    Locking the barn after the horse has already gotten out. Plus I thought pot wasn't bad for you.

    When Willie turned 80, an interviewer asked him if he was going to retire. His reply - "All I do is play music and golf. Which one do you want me to retire from?" :cowboy:

    Now that pot is legal in so many places, guess it's lost the whole "outlaw" appeal.

    Man...you gotta' be real careful to make sure you got all of those things out of your pockets before doing laundry. A disaster in the making.

    Cedar bark?. Never heard that before. Wonder if it is a substitute for tobacco, or a substitute for pot?

    Willie no longer smokes pot - I thought it was a death notice.

    Never heard that one, but we boys smoked grape vines growing up just to see what it was like.

    Marlboro's were much better.

    A guy in my class in high school used to go out the back yard of his house and smoke random leaves. He called it astrohash.

    He is a colonel in the AF flying F-15s.

    Jeez, when I read the headline, I figured he must have died.

    Don't do that, OP!
