The last years, activists, scientists, and politicians have lobbied for Legalization of Marijuana use with varying degrees of success. However, one of the biggest assets in the fight for cannabis recognition has been Celebrity Influence.

Speaking Openly about their own use and about weed’s many benefits, celebrities can help normalize perceptions of the herb, paving the way for more progressive legislation. One of those celebrities is Willie Nelson. He said:

I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is a herb and a flower. God put it here. If he put it here and wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to sat that GOD is wrong?"

Willie Nelson / Synonymous With Marijuana

For people of a certain generation, he is almost Synonymous With Marijuana, the musician penned both a song and an autobiography titled "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die".

After Achieving crossover success as country-rock star in the 1960s and 70s, Nelson threw his celebrity weight behind a number of progressive causes, including pacifism, renewable energy, and LGBT rights. Most of all, Nelson supports Cannabis Legalization. He said:

Don't tell me about health when you're talking about legalizing marijuana because it's not dangerous health-wise. I'm the canary in the mine, and I'm still healthy.

NORML & Willie’s Reserve

Nelson serves as co-chair of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) and as of 2015 has expanded into Cultivation, establishing the brand Willie’s Reserve, with plans to open stores in states where recreational use is legal. Nelson, who allegedly smoked on The Roof of The White House, has secured a name for himself as a 420 friendly celeb!

Willie / The Red Headed Stranger

If Willie Nelson were only known for two things, it'd be his music and his love of #Marijuana.
Willie has ne'er shied faraway from speaking brazenly regarding his pot use. Legends aren’t born. They’re made. And they grow.

He is America’s most Legendary #Stoner and a walking testament to the power of weed, that may have even saved his life. That’s however how he became the Red Headed Stranger, how his tour bus became the Honeysuckle Rose, and how his #Stash became legendary.
