What could be better than two old guys discussing marijuana on national television…especially when said old guys are Larry King and Willie Nelson? Nelson, nearly as famous for his love of pot as he is for his singing, admitted (shocker alert!) he still smokes, but explained he has “a huge tolerance for it” that us mere mortals don’t. He went on to admit he smoked before the show, causing Larry King to get all shouty: “So you! Have pot in you! Right now!”
