The legalization of marijuana in Washington D.C. called for a celebration.
By chance, Nelson was performing at the White House the day it was legalized and was able to share his joy with the President of the United States.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Nelson talks about his conversation with President Obama that day.
"I asked President Obama, 'Did you hear they legalized pot here today?' and he said, 'Yeah, I heard about that.' And I laughed. And he said, 'Well, you know, I'm from Hawaii.' So we had a big laugh about it."
When asked if he 'lit one up' at the White House, his response was, "No. Well, I did, but not with him." He's fearless!!
