Country star and marijuana aficionado Willie Nelson has revealed that he has stopped smoking the drug after 65 years.

Of course, Nelson could - and nearly assuredly will - enjoy marijuana products and cannabis in other forms, as humans have advanced the industry past NEEDING to smoke it, after all.

Early in his life, Nelson smoked cedar bark and then went onto cigarettes and noted that the combo "almost killed me". Further, he said "I don't smoke anymore - take better care of myself" which could just mean he's switched to edibles.

"I have abused my lungs quite a bit in the past, so breathing is a little more hard these days and I have to be careful", said Nelson of his conscious decision to stub the roach for good. "I think that weed kept me from wanting to kill people". "I don't give a (expletive)", he told KSAT.

'I wouldn't be alive. "I wouldn't have lived 85 years if I'd have kept drinking and smoking like I was when I was 30, 40 years old". "And probably kept a lot of people from wanting to kill me, too".

"I don't give a s-", about the rumors, Nelson said.

He is now one of a number of celebrities behind a cannabis-themed business venture according to NBC News.

Over the years, he's also become something of a walking, talking billboard for marijuana use, as an avid enthusiast and, recently, owner of his own cannabis products company, Willie's Reserve.

But years of smoking have taken a toll on his health and he has had to battle pneumonia and emphysema. "So I said, "wait a minute, I ain't getting that high off of Chesterfields" so I throwed out the cigarettes, rolled up 20 joints, stuck it in there, and I haven't had a cigarette since".

"I feel like I bought so much, it's time to start selling it back!" he said in 2015.
