January 31 was a much-anticipated day in Nevada as Willie Nelson’s marijuana brand was debuted. An event was held at Exile Boutique to welcome the long-time marijuana advocate. The event also featured Willie Nelson-themed tattoos for a recommended donation of $40.
No interviews were given by Nelson though, according to the Las Vegas Sun. Willie’s Reserve made no comments either. Before Nelson left the venue he lit a joint, inhaled, and passed it onto a member of the crowd.
Redwood Marijuana CEO Paul Schloss said, “We’ve been working on this over a year because they wanted a place where recreational marijuana was legal. This isn’t just a pot smoker here – this is a rockstar.”
As for the fan in the crowd that was handed the lit joint by Nelson, she simply said, “You’re awesome.”
Check local dispensary menus for Willie’s Reserve brand items including joints and edibles. They’ll be available at eight dispensaries across the valley.
