Nelson goes up in smoke with Willie's Reserve
Wednesday, April 22, 2015
– Willie Nelson is going up in smoke with Willie's Reserve, his own brand of marijuana.
Willie's Reserve will be grown, distributed and sold by local businesses in Colorado and Washington and will become available in other markets when state regulations allow.
Nelson has been an outspoken supporter of cannabis for personal use and for industrial hemp production.

"I am looking forward to working with the best growers in Colorado and Washington to make sure our product is the best on the market," said Nelson.
