'And he says that his companion that shared the pot with him was one of the servants at the White House. That is not exactly true. It actually was one of my sons.' 
Carter, 95, made it a point not to reveal which of his three sons was the one who enjoyed a quick puff with the country music legend.  
When asked whether he was the son of the peanut farmer who enjoyed a little bit of pot with Nelson, Chip Carter paused before answering.  
'My guess is it's true. If you're talking about me and Willie, he was my friend,' he said, according to the LA Times. 'I've never talked about that before.' 
It just so happens to be the 40th anniversary of the passing of the joint, this Sunday.

'In the break I said, "Let's go upstairs." We just kept going up till we got to the roof, where we leaned against the flagpole at the top of the place and lit one up.
 'If you know Washington, the White House is the hub of the spokes — the way it was designed. Most of the avenues run into the White House. You could sit up and could see all the traffic coming right at you. It's a nice place up there.'
The documentary comes out in theaters this week.
