Willie Nelson on smoking marijuana: "Now, we can go to Colorado"

As host Piers Morgan rolls out the red carpet for the author of "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die," the primetime exclusive interview touches upon one of Wilson's well-known favorite pastimes, smoking marijuana.
"I've got to ask you the question, have you come similarly infused today?" asks Morgan, wondering if Nelson arrived at his studio amidst his traditional herbal haze. "Did you wake up this morning and have a quick, you know, a puff?"
"I probably did," admits the guest. "If I remember. It's, you know, that short-term stuff."
Elaborating on his exploits, the 79-year-old with more than 60 studio albums to his credit reveals a seemingly unlikely character to be one of his frequent smoking buddies:
"You know, me and Snoop smoke a lot," says Nelson, talking about well-known hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg, aka Calvin Broadus. "I was in Amsterdam one time and Snoop called me and wanted me to sing on his record. And I said, 'OK.' He said, 'where are you?' And I said, 'I'm in Amsterdam.' So he caught the next plane and come over. And we recorded a song together."
Referencing recent legislation that has legalized marijuana in certain parts of the United States, Nelson notes that such long-distance travel would no longer be required:
"Now, we can go to Colorado."
UFC welterweight Matt Riddle and the medical marijuana dilemma
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 20th 2012 by THCFinder
The sport of mixed martial arts still isn't sure what to do about the pot smokers in its midst, which is bad news for them. It means they continue to get tested for a drug that remains in their systems far past the point of being active. If they get caught they're subject to punishments that don't fit the crime, all while the issue at the heart of the debate goes unexamined.
Just ask Matt Riddle if you don't believe me. He's a medical marijuana patient at home in Nevada, but when he got popped by a drug test in Calgary, where he beat Chris Clements with a finish that was dubbed "Submission of the Night" at UFC 149, he had the win erased from his record. He still considers himself 8-3 rather than 7-3 with one no contest, he told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) after a decision victory over John Maguire at UFC 154, but his record will never reflect it.
"I dropped him with a liver kick, hit him with a standing arm triangle, and it was a very dominant performance," Riddle said. "The unfortunate part is that, in this world, people are OK if you take Xanax and testosterone and all these other drugs as long as a doctor prescribes them, but if you're prescribed medical marijuana because of your issues, it's not acceptable and they really frown upon it."
And herein lies an important distinction, especially if you're one of those people who hears the words "medical marijuana" and immediately thinks "loophole." According to Riddle, he's got real issues that are really solved (or at least greatly improved) by using marijuana. Issues like ADHD, which he was diagnosed with as a child, and which led to him being prescribed an assortment of drugs. First there was Adderall, which killed his appetite since "it's basically speed," Riddle said. Then there was Prevacid to deal with stomach issues, since he wasn't eating well and was reduced to "skin and bones."
As a teenager, he started smoking marijuana for non-medicinal reasons, as many teenagers do. But he eventually found that it allowed him to ditch the prescriptions, and now, according to Riddle, "I don't take anything else."
He doesn't need to. Marijuana helps transform him from a high-strung basket case to someone who other people actually like, he said.
"You can ask anybody who hangs out with me, when I'm not on my medicine, it's not that I'm hard to be around, but I'm very intense," Riddle said shortly after his win over Maguire. "... I like to slow it down. I like to be normal, like a normal person. Right now, I'm on edge. If I didn't just get out of the cage, I'd want to beat the s--- out of somebody, just for no reason. That's just how I'm wired, and I don't like it. I like being a nice guy. When I use, I'm a very nice guy and everybody around me loves me more. I'm a much more pleasant guy to be around."
