0819_willie_nelson_gettyWillie Nelson was forced to cancel a fund-raiser appearance in the Denver area Sunday night because he was having trouble breathing and was taken to a local hospital.

Nelson was to appear at a fund-raiser for the Dumb Friends League that was being held in Castle Pines Village, which is located 21 miles from Denver.

According to 9NEWS in Colorado, an announcement made to the crowd said Nelson was "suffering from breathing problems due to the high altitude and emphysema." One of the organizers of the event said Nelson was taken to the hospital.

Get better Willie. Colorado is high altitude, and older people tend to get breathing problems. So do young people with pneumonia, etc. Enjoy Life!

...And Majestik,if you want to call me 'on the mat',maybe you should read 'WHAT' i'm actually typing,&,not 'YOUR' misreading of it,Chronically ill,meant 'EXACTLY' that,from the purely physical aspect,as in 'having breathing' problems,is that clear enough for you.

oh and ALBERICH? Get a clue. There is no need for you to comment on every single comment. No one here actually gives one good zhit about what you have to say. If you think your comments are that important perhaps you should consider starting a blog.

I wouldn't word it quite the way Thugzilla did, but he is absolutely right. Willy Nelson probably has emphysema from all of the marijuana he has smoked. Lung damage and dementia related to brain cell death are just two side effects of long term marijuana use. There are others.

Sure go ahead light another joint. Get some of that medical marijuana, I hear it cures everything and if it don't you won't even care.
