Willie Nelson and His Weed Want to Hire You

Who wouldn't want to work for Willie Nelson?

by Michael Geslani

Iconic musician and long-time marijuana advocate Willie Nelson is joining a long list of celebrities who are opening their own line of marijuana specialty products. The Red Headed Stranger singer has been a longtime advocate for cannabis and is also on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), which is in favor for marijuana legalization.

The brand, Willie’s Reserve, will offer products such as exclusive strains grown by independent farmers and CO2-extracted concentrate cartridges for the discreet smoker. The company is based in Denver, Colorado and has recently posted jobs that are available from production manager, extractor, compliance officer, bookkeeper, and sales director. For those in the Colorado area, you can check the job descriptions here and hopefully if the job is yours, you’ll be smoking with the iconic singer in no time.

Nelson is following in the likes of other celebrities joining in the foray of the booming cannabis industry. Earlier this year Whoopi Goldberg announced a line of pot-products while Roseanne Barr is opening a dispensary named, “Rosanne’s Joint”. Famed smoker and comedic legend Tommy Chong is also lending his name to pot by releasing a line of cannabis products. With an expected boom of cannabis sales in legal states from $6.7 billion in 2016 to $21.8 billion in 2020 it’s only a matter of time before more celebrities are sparked by this trend.
