Today was the first day of the tour and also the first day of sales in Washington for Willie’s Reserve, so we celebrated accordingly. We were in town for a concert at Marymoor Park Amphitheater in Redmond. During the gospel set Willie Nelson and Family were joined on stage by Lee Oskar, harmonica player from the band War.

Memorial Weekend

admin —  May 26, 2016 — 1 Comment

This Memorial Day weekend let’s remember what we are celebrating: Honoring the men and women who have given their lives for this country.

Please do a good deed this week to honor those who have given the ultimate price for our freedom over the years. Arrange some sort of help for their devastated families, or do something kind for the soldiers in our country who made it home. As a nation we can make a huge difference for our military servicemen and women if we put our heads and our hearts together. Peace be with you.

Nelson: ‘I never thought I’d see the day it would be legal’

By Paul Venema – Reporter , Ivette Gray – Editor

 

http://www.ksat.com/news/willie-nelson-set-to-market-marijuana-in-colorado#

 

 

BRIARCLIFF, Texas – Relaxing at his ranch outside of Austin, Texas, country music legend Willie Nelson discussed his plans to enter the marijuana market this fall.

Nelson said that he made the decision after the sale of recreational marijuana became legal in Colorado and Washington state in 2012.

“We’re setting up businesses there,” Nelson said, explaining that he hopes to have what he’ll call “Willie’s Reserve” available by September in Colorado.

“This product is some of the best they have to offer up there,” he said.

Nelson said that he understands that there will be plenty of competition.

“You can go into any of the places in Colorado now and get good weed (and) smoke, (if) you want to,” Nelson said.

He predicted that in less than a decade recreational marijuana will be available in every state.

“I never thought I’d see the day that pot would be legal anywhere in the United States,” he said.

“The bottom line is money, and once those old guys see how much money is being made in Colorado and Washington  — all the places that it is legal —  they’ll say, ‘Hey, wait a minute. We may want to think about it,'” Nelson said, referring to lawmakers who are opposed to the legalization of marijuana.

But for him, he said it is about more than just money. It’s about social acceptance of marijuana.

“It’ll generate talk, which is more important than money,” Nelson said.
