According to his biography, Willie Nelson smoked weed on the roof of the White House. He accomplished this feat during the tenure of president Jimmy Carter. But how on Earth would a country singer such as Willie Nelson get to smoke weed on the White House roof? As the old saying goes, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. And believe me when I say this, he knew some very important people.
Willie Nelson shot to fame with a series of critical albums between 1973 and 1978. These successes propelled Nelson to become one of the most recognizable country music recording artists. As with Johnny Cash, his voice is distinctive and almost instantly recognizable. But music hasn’t been his only claim to fame. He has also appeared in over 30 films, has co-authored several books and is an activist for marijuana use and bio-fuels. Say what? Did we just say marijuana use? We sure did, and he was also pretty chummy with president Carter and the first lady.
How did Willie Nelson smoke weed on the White House roof?
It turns out that the famous country singer, actor, poet, author and activist, of which legalized marijuana use is one of his signature activism’s, was a frequent visitor to the White House. Being a frequent visitor, and a well known celebrity as well, it resulted in him gaining friends in high places. And when it comes to people in high places, few get much higher than the president of the USA. In fact, not only was he a regular visitor, but First Lady, Rosalynn Carter, joined Nelson in a duet of ‘Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother’ by Ray Wylie Hubbard. Now that’s some serious connections.
In his biography, Willie Nelson wrote that he frequently visited the White House and has smoked weed on the White House roof.
Take that establishment.
