Country music legend Willie Nelson loves to perform in northern California because fans there throw top-grade marijuana onstage as a thank you for his support. The pot-loving singer/songwriter admits he never has to pay for the drug and rarely runs out, but some free weed is better than others. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "We never have to buy any. Somebody just gives you all you can smoke. "We played up in northern California last year, up there where all the good weed grows. I think when we left the concert, there were probably eight or 10 pounds of weed on the stage - because that's where they grow it all. "All the great growers in that area, they're proud of their weed over there."
