Willie Nelson announces own-brand marijuana stores for the US

The country and western star plans to make a lot of green out of the herb...


Country music legend Willie Nelson is planning to become a weed-entrepreneur by launching a range of marijuana plants and accessories in US states where smoking the herb is now legal.

The 81-year-old ‘You Are Always On My Mind’ singer and veteran legalisation campaigner announced the news at the South by Southwest music festival in Texas, saying that Willie Nelson Reserve branded green will be sold in his own stores next year. 

Fair enough, Willie. If ‘Reefer Madness‘ hasn’t killed you by now, it probably never will. We’d love to see other celebrities endorse weed culture, too.

Maybe it’s time to light up (another) fatty, Mr Schwarzenegger?
