    Has hell frozen over? Willie Nelson quit smoking weed

    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.
    "I started smoking cedar bark, went from that to cigarettes to whatever," Nelson told KSAT. "And that almost killed me."
    Now, he says, he's more conscientious about his health.
    "I don't smoke anymore -- take better care of myself."
    During the CMA Awards last month, Nelson performed with Kacey Musgraves and at one point it appeared as though he was struggling for breath. But he did pull through the performance.
    Nelson isn't planning on stopping touring anytime soon. He told the local affiliate that singing for an hour on stage is the best exercise for his lungs. He also added that the tour bus is home to him.

    IDK, feels like a PR move to me given that touring is apparently important to him, and the fact that he had to cancel his most recent tour for a month in August.

    He’s 86!

    Weed smoke has galvanized his innards, if he stops now he’ll die quick.

    Well, fuck, so have I and many others. Now it's magic chocolate and gummies. Much healthier, and you don't reek of skunk smell like those dirtbags I encountered in Vermont this week.

    When my buddy takes his Volcano apart to clean the tar off the internal parts, I tell him, you know, that stuff is coating your lungs, too.

    Let's do some livin'
    After, we die

    You can just turn around at the border and fuck off. And ya, edibles are a good thing.

    Not only are edibles healthier, I prefer the high and how it sets in.

    Actually, those things tend to lead to isolation, from what I've seen.

    Marijuana is a gateway drug. Perhaps he's moved on to heroin now?

    We shared the same weed dealer in Maui. I hope this does not adversely effect the local economy y.
