Willie Nelson partakes in his favorite pastime with Chelsea Handler — and it’s awesome! YouTube

In case you haven’t heard, country music legend Willie Nelson is a fan of marijuana. Some people might even call him an expert.

So when comedian Chelsea Handler chose drugs for one of the four hour-long episodes of her 2016 Netflix series “Chelsea Does,” Willie seemed like a natural guest star for the “Chelsea Does Drugs” episode.

In an effort to better understand her subject and explain how drugs affect people, Chelsea gets high with a few famous friends. Throughout the course of the show, she tries prescription drugs, eats food made from pot with other celebrities, gets high while being tested by a scientist, and travels to Peru to experience ingesting the ayahuasca plant from a shaman.

Since America continues to debate the legalities of marijuana from state to state, she joins Willie Nelson to talk about and test legalized pot and his own brand of the drug.

The other three episodes of her series, which premiered on Jan. 22, are “Chelsea Does Marriage,” “Chelsea Does Racism” and “Chelsea Does Silicon Valley.”
