Willie Nelson

That one time we talked to Jimmy Carter about Willie Nelson smoking weed on the White House roof

Jimmy Carter certainly seems like a cool guy, as far as former leaders of the free world go. Last week, Reverb's John Wenzel talked to Carter ahead of the former president's visit to Denver on July 26 supporting his new book, "A Full Life: Reflections at Ninety." Naturally, Wenzel talked to Carter about weed and music: Q: Your old buddy, Willie Nelson, has that story about smoking pot on the roof of the White House when he visited you in office.
