Country outlaw legend Willie Nelson inhales deep on his love for cannabis in a new Rolling Stone cover interview.

The Red Headed Stranger appears on the May 2019 cover of the music and cultural magazine, an issue dedicated to marijuana.

In a 4,000-word profile that takes readers to Nelson’s Texas-based Luck Ranch, the “Whiskey River” singer shared that he smoked his first joint in 1954, an introduction to the drug that he “wouldn’t be alive without.”

“… It saved my life, really,” Nelson told Rolling Stone. “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. I think that weed kept me from wanting to kill people. And probably kept a lot of people from wanting to kill me, too — out there drunk, running around.”
