Jimmy Carter has set the record straight about joining with Willie Nelson in a smoking pot on the roof of the White House during Carter’s presidency.
It was not one of the White House staff members, it was one of Carter’s sons.
“When Willie Nelson wrote his autobiography, he confessed that he washed the dishes at the White House one night while he was spending the night with me,” Carter, 95, says in the new documentary, “Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President “Friday according to the Los Angeles Times.
“And he says that his partner who shared the utensils with him was one of the servants of the White House. This is not at all true – it was actually one of my sons who did not want to be classified as a pot-smoker like himself. ”
The documentary explores his relationships with several musicians from Democrats, including Bob Dylan and the Allman Brothers, during his time at the White House, 1977–1981.
