Open Post: Hosted By Willie Nelson’s Story About Out-Smoking Snoop Dogg

February 11, 2021 / Posted by:

Willie Nelson is 87 years old and just released his 71st solo album since 1962. Whoa… that’s 1.2 albums a year for almost 60 years! And they say marijuana makes you lazy. In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Willie discussed getting the COVID vaccine, missing live performances, and how he once out-smoked Snoop Dogg. Wow. The reeeeal Fight of the Century!

The interviewer asked Willie about Snoop Dogg’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live from a few years ago, where the rapper revealed he had to “hit the timeout button” when he was smoking with the pig-tailed prince. Here was Willie’s response:

[Laughs] That was over in Amsterdam! I called Snoop and I said, “Hey buddy, you gotta come over here. This is where it’s at!” So he came over and we hit every bar, every smoke place in Amsterdam. We had a helluva time.

Here’s that clip from Jimmy Kimmel:

And another from The Tonight Show, where Snoop spills more (green) tea about the pair’s Amsterdam hijinks:

In the interview, Willie admits that there are “probably” people who can out-smoke him. He also reveals he actually doesn’t smoke as much as he used to; he actually prefers vaping cuz it’s better on his lungs. Smart choice. Willie says he’s been smoking “everything that would burn” (grapevine, cotton leaves, tobacco, etc.) since he was a kid in small-town Texas, but didn’t get into marijuana until he was older:

 I smoked cigarettes, drank, did all that for years—until it almost killed me. And then I came across marijuana, and I said, “What a minute—I don’t need to drink whiskey no more, I don’t need to smoke cigarettes no more.” In fact, it was about killing me. I’d already had a lung collapse and wasn’t doing so great health-wise, so knew I had to quit something. So, I quit tobacco, I quit alcohol, and I doubled up on the weed.

Great health advice. No more booze or ciggies. All weed, all the time. Thank you, Dr. Willie!
