[Ed. – “Rock and roll”?]

In a new documentary chronicling former President Jimmy Carter’s appreciation of rock ‘n’ roll, the Georgia statesman talks about a night during which his “best friend,” songwriter Willie Nelson, smoked marijuana with “one” of his sons on the roof of the presidential mansion.

“When Willie Nelson wrote his autobiography, he confessed that he smoked pot in the White House,” the 95-year-old Carter said in the trailer for Jimmy Carter: Rock and Roll President. “And he says that his companion was one of his servants at the White House, it actually was one of my sons.”

Nelson previously conceded that it “could have been” one of the Carters’ middle children, James Earl “Chip” Carter III, with whom he smoked marijuana on the roof of the White House, according to GQ.
