How Did Willie Nelson Get On The White House Roof To Smoke Weed And With Who?
Willie Nelson was part of the country supergroup The Highwaymen, with Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson. Little was known of the time he smoked weed on the roof of the white house, until now.
The Tweet reads, “Willie Nelson visiting President Jimmy Carter at the White House back in 1977. This would become the day that Willie was infamously caught smoking marijuana with Jimmy’s son Chip on the roof of America’s Executive Mansion.” As proof, he also has a picture of Nelson’s White House invitation. Homeboy came with some receipts.
According to a report by Hollywood.com, a source said, “getting stoned on the roof of the White House, you can’t help but turn inward… Certain philosophical questions come to mind, like… how the f**k did I get here?”
Marijuana advocate and enthusiast made the confession himself in his memoir “It’s A Long Story’, which released in 2015. Fondly recalling the 1977 incident, he wrote about how then-Presiden Jimmy Carter invited the singer to the White House. Nelson allegedly claims that a “White House insider” took him to see the city views at night on the roof after dinner.
He also made his love for weed crystal clear, “has never betrayed me. Unlike booze, it had never made me nasty or violent. Unlike cocaine, it never sped me up or fired up my ego.”
Good to know Willie. Good to know.
How Did Willie Nelson Get Up On The White House Roof To Smoke Weed?
Much later, in a 2017 Vice interview, he was asked, “There’s a story you once smoked pot on top of the White House. And I’ve always wondered: How did you get up on the roof?” Nelson, however, was clever to dodge it with a witty reply. “That short term memory loss makes it hard to remember. I don’t exactly remember how I got up there. I did notice that all the streets come at you from every direction when you’re up on top of the White House,” and added, “It’s like you’re at the center of the world.”
Allegedly Willie smoked weed with Jimmy Carter’s son. I just want to know how he got up on that roof?
