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.

For the uninformed (Christy) "vaporizer" to the way folks are now enjoying "weed". Hey (PRS) get educated and get out of the 50's. If Marijuana was so harmful why is there not a single do***ented death due to an overdose of marijuana? Everyone enjoy 420 whether you smoke it vaporize it or even eat it in sweet goodies like brownies. Roll On!!!!

Potsmoking causes lung problems just as much as cigarettes. I do like Willy Nelson, it is hard not to but I am so sick of old hippies telling the next generation that pot is harmless lovely substance that somehow enhances your life.

No it's nothing like cigarettes what-so-ever. Don't state your opinion as fact.. there are over 4000 chemicals in cigarettes which is what causes the problems. It is a relatively harmless substance.. relative to any prescription and over the count medicine, alcohol, nicotine and other illegal narcotics.. not too mention most foods we eat etc. etc. Smoking weed doesn't make you a hippie either stop generalizing.. that's like calling all beer drinkers red necks.. ignorant much?

This is a very helpful medincinal choice. Yes, it can be used for other reasons, such as enjoyment. Why wouldn't we all want to be full of enjoyment. This is a God given plant and it should be legal and made available to all that choose to use it for their own reasons.

My father , may he rest in peace , had a great expression , for unproductive scenario's like this; "At least she's pickin' on me .. she's leaving some other poor other poor bastard alone.

As quiet as it's kept and from time to time I enjoy that "puerto rican lettuce" ... Nothin' better except for a personal invitation from Willie or Kinky for hope a most privilage round of "cowpasture pool." Let's tee it up and bump it around Willie. That I think I should be able to resurrect some of that Wohawkin from the late 60's ... I haven't been able to pick up even a wedge since Dad passed.

P.S. I didn't wish to bother you at the Warner Theater in 2005 Youngstown, Ohio so I left the framed picture of Johnny Cash "give kids the world" with your bus driver; Our family wanted you to have it ... Hope you liked it; Was one of a kind; Most important my father wanted you to have it.
