Willie Nelson is synonymous with good times, country music and weed, and it comes as no surprise to his fans that he`s launching his own brand of weed and a chain of marijuana stores.
Usually when we witness a celebrity endorse a product; we mumble to ourselves "Sellout " or "Shill. " But we are all familiar with Willie`s lifelong passion for weed, and we are confident that his "Willie`s Reserve " marijuana products will be of the highest quality.
I just hope that the octogenarian lives long enough to see his marijuana stores become a smashing success.
Willie claimed that he smoked weed on the roof of the White House during the Carter administration, hopefully by the time the next president is elected the recreational use of marijuana will be legal in most states, and Willie will be invited to smoke weed in the Oval Office.
