Willie Nelson to Launch Weed Brand 'Willie's Reserve'

Willie Nelson shocked no one when he announced plans to launch his own new brand of weed, Willie's Reserve.

It's no secret that Nelson is a huge fan of marijuana and supporter of legalization — the man has spent his life and dedicated his celebrity to advocating for the cause. 

"Really he wants it, at the end of the day, to envelop what his personal morals and convictions are," Michael Bowman, spokesman for Willie's Reserve, told The Daily Beast. "So from the store itself to how they'll work with suppliers and how things are operated, it's going to be very reflective of Willie's life."

Georgia Passes Bill to Legalize Certain Forms of Medical Marijuana

The bill is named Haleigh’s Hope Act for the 5-year-old girl with epilepsy whose parents were forced to move to Colorado so their daughter could get treatment when a similar bill failed in Georgia last year. This time, it passed in the House by a resounding vote of 160-1.
