Just watched Willie on the Colbert Show. A fairly brief appearance and he really didn’t get a chance to talk much, but he did get to sing a few notes. During the show, there must have been a dozen marijuana references, including one from Ambassador Richard Holbrooke (who also sang with Willie and Stephen), with Willie dutifully adding “Wheat? I thought they said ‘weed.'”
Everybody loves Willie. And everybody knows he smokes pot. And nobody thinks that it’s wrong.
Five minutes with Willie Nelson can wipe away the effects of months of reefer madness lies from prohibitionists, and you start to believe that everything really could be OK.
I think America would be a much better place if our leaders all spent a couple of hours in Willie’s trailer.
