Willie Nelson’s Advice for Novice Pot Smokers (and Maureen Dowd)

The marijuana icon shares some tips and talks legalization

In June, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a widely covered column about her paranoid experience after eating a caramel-chocolate candy bar in Denver. “I barely made it from my desk to the bed, where I lay curled up in a hallucinatory state for the next eight hours,” she wrote.

Noted pot enthusiast Willie Nelson read the piece. “Oh yeah, she OD’d somewhere,” he said with a laugh, just after emerging from his tour bus’ bedroom, a haze of pot smoke following him out the door. “Like a lot of people who do it, [you think] ‘Oh, marijuana, I’ll try some, not realizing that this hard candy may be stronger than that hard candy.’ Now she knows. Maybe she’ll read the label now!” Nelson added Dowd is welcome to get high properly, on his bus, “anytime.”

“I have eaten too much, and if you have, you know the feeling,” Nelson added. “It’s not a good feeling. It won’t kill you, but it’ll make you feel you’re dying. You gotta be careful what you eat, whatever it is – unless you make it yourself and know how potent they are.
