Willie Nelson told a Texas TV station that he is giving up blazin' fat because of health issues. The 87 year old singer told KSAT-TV that years of stokin' up have taken a toll on his health. “I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more difficult these days and I have to be careful.” Wille says he will continue to play music because the exchange of energy between him and the audience is what keeps him going. Willie says he is happy to be around and is not near death. Below, Willie tells Larry King how he became a pot smoker.
