Willie Nelson

How I'm Spending My 4/20

4/20/2011 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

4/20 is an unofficial holiday for pot-smokers across the globe ... but this year, Willie Nelson tells us he's making a MAJOR change to his celebration because of health issues.

Don't worry, it's nothing serious ... Willie says he's just feeling congested from being out in the snow recently -- so instead of smoking a joint this year, he's going to fire up his vaporizer instead.

As you may have heard, Willie canceled some of his shows due to his condition ... but plans to spend the next few days back home in Texas, where he can recover and hang out with his horses.

So, there you have it -- outspoken weed smoker Willie Nelson is going to smoke weed on a marijuana holiday.

Pass the funyuns.

Don't feel bad for him! He may not be able to smoke some 420 on 4/20 but I'm sure he'll have a brownie or something else to get him elevated to 420 status.

An Obamanation of America!
Both parties have contributed to the corruption and growth of big government and the abomination of the American dream; our founders' vision of self-government! An America free of big government oppression and tyranny, is the one true patriots still hold dear.

I am Spartacus    

Using a vaporizer is the healthiest way. It also gets you the highest because you're getting more THC than you do from a joint/blunt or bowl/bong. I'm sure Willie has a nice vaporizer and will be using it.

420 originated from a group a stoners in high school from like the 70s who used to always meet up at 4:20 and smoke up. Over the years that basically turned into the slang for smoking weed and now April 20th has basically turned into some sort of holiday for potheads... sort of.

So Willie doesn't have to smoke any certain type of way. As long as he doesn't f' up the rotation.

Time to grow up you hippies.
----------------------------------------------------------
If ever the world needed hippies and the hippy message of peace love and understanding it's NOW!. These are ideals one should NEVER grow out of fashion. For a year or two they almost did it, today's youth would rather get a "cool" bible verse tattoo and kick the **** out of each other after watching a UFC fight. Give me the hippy life any day! Smoke a fattie kick back and love your fellow man, seems like a good mantra to me even after all these years.

you go willie, the vaporizer is much better to smoke with, you get most of the THC...

better high depending on who you get your weed from. can get you some great Kush if you want.
