Woody Harrelson Recalls How Hard It Was To Tell Willie Nelson He'd Quit Smoking Weed

Singer Willie Nelson and actor Woody Harrelson aren't just two of the biggest cannabis icons alive today. They're also neighbors and poker buddies, so when Woody decided to quit smoking weed last year, he found it very hard to break the news to poor Willie.

"That was a very hard one to break," Harrelson told Jimmy Kimmel last Friday. "It was one of those things where at first I'm pretending [to smoke]," he explained while miming hits off an invisible spliff. "Just holding it [the joint] because I don't want him to know. And then finally I'm like, 'Willie, I quit.'"

But Nelson hasn't given up hope that Harrelson will rejoin his smoking circle. In fact, Willie reaches out to Woody with a joint every time he visits. "It never fails," Harrelson added. "When the joint comes around, he's passing it to me. Keeps waiting for me to smoke again."

Nelson might have better luck passing a brownie instead. Last time Harrelson discussed his marijuana moratorium, he was coy about whether or not he'd given up weed entirely or just toking.

"You don't have to smoke a brownie dude. You know what I'm saying?" he told Stephen Colbert last July.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
