Willie Nelson Has Some Weedy Advice For Attorney General Sessions
The musician/marijuana advocate thinks Sessions should blaze down on some herb.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a notorious boner kill when it comes to cannabis. The dude straight up hates weed. We know this because of a number of anti-weed statements from Sessions, including the notion that "good people" don't smoke it.
Willie Nelson, on the other hand, is all about weed. The musician and marijuana advocate has long been vocal in his support for legalization and devotion to the herb. Nelson even lent his namesake to a high-end brand of cannabis products available in multiple state markets.
In a recently published interview with Rolling Stone, reporter Patrick Doyle asked Nelson his thoughts on the Trump administration and discussed Sessions' unfamiliarity with the chronic.
From Rolling Stone:
Doyle: Jeff Sessions recently said that pot is "only slightly less awful" than heroin.
Nelson: I wonder if he's tried both of them. I don't think you can really make a statement like that unless you tried it all. So I'd like to suggest to Jeff to try it and then let me know later if he thinks he's still telling the truth!
Doyle: What do you make of the Trump presidency so far?
Nelson: Well, I knew him back when he owned some casinos, and I worked for him. He always paid me. I had no problems at all. I think he's stepped into a different world. Like he said this morning, 'I had no idea this job was going to be this hard.' It's easy when you can just go bankrupt anytime you want to and say, 'I'll check you later.' But that's hard to do when you're president of the United States.
That's some pretty solid advice, Mr. Nelson. It would indeed be interesting to imagine how the attorney general would act should he experiment with the Schedule I drug. We'll never know for sure, but he'd probably be, like, way more chill.
