Woody Harrelson Back To Smoking Pot After Run In With Willie Nelson

By Chad Weiser

Woody Harrelson is back on the ganja and it's all due to his pot pal, Willie Nelson.

The 58-year-old actor says he originally gave up smoking cannabis because of his three daughters, Deni, 26, Zoe, 22, and Makani, 13, but admit Nelson has constantly tried to tempt him back to the leafy substance ... so he eventually gave in.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, the pot enthusiast said: "I did quit. For almost two years. No smoking, no vaping. And then I ran into [Willie] and that was that.

"See, everybody thinks of Willie as a model of progressive thinking and virtue, and he is, but he's also got an evil side. Eee-vil," Harrelson jokingly explained.


"Now, Willie never felt too good about me quitting. And he kept trying to get me to not quit. We'd be playing poker and he'd pass me a vape pen, and I'd say, 'Willie, man, I don't do that anymore.' And he'd act surprised, like it was news to him - every time, just as surprised as he could be."

He continued, "Anyway, Willie passed me the pen after I'd won this huge pot. I was in a celebrating mood, so I snatched the pen from him and took a long draw. And Willie smiled at me and said, 'Welcome home, son.'"


The 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' actor also credits the 86-year-old country legend as the reason for why he and his family moved to Maui, Hawaii.

"You know the whole reason I'm in Maui in the first place is Willie? Yeah, I went and saw one of his shows a number of years ago. I wanted to meet him."

Those must be some fun block parties.
