Celebrating Willie Nelson at Luck

Monday, May 2nd, 2022

“Last night’s b‘day tribute at Luck, Texas to our pal Willie Nelson was spectacular – one of the best Willie shows I’ve ever seen – he sang and played like he was 60 all over again. And the all-star Bruce Robison led Willie tribute was beautiful fun.

Thanks to the Luck Productions team and to Willie, Bruce, Sheryl Crow, Robert Early Keen, Nathaniel Ratliff, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Kevin Russell, Margo Price and so many more.”

Country music legend Willie Nelson’s organization, Luck Reunion, has started a petition for President Biden to make April 20 through April 29 a national holiday for marijuana.

“The fine people of Luck, Texas, and supporters of the great Willie Nelson, on behalf of cannabis users around the nation, are writing today to ask you to consider declaring the 9 days spanning April 20 to April 29 an official national holiday: the ‘High Holidays,’” the petition states

The petition was started by Luck Reunion and has over 2,200 signatures. The goal is to get 2,500 signatures. 

The holiday would end on April 29 in honor of Nelson’s birthday.

The real purpose, the group says, of the request is to educate people about marijuana and attempt to de-stigmatize it.

“We believe that recognition of the ‘High Holidays’ opens the door to much needed dialogue supporting the many benefits of cannabis while helping to remove the unjustified stigmas currently surrounding this amazing plant,” the petition says.

The petition comes before Luck Reunion hosts their first annual cannabis convention called “Planting the Seed.”

“Please puff, puff, and pass this to your friends in Congress for consideration,” the petition says.

Nelson has been an advocate for marijuana and education around the topic for much of his musical career.

Join the Luck Seed Summit Cannabis Convention, presented by Willie Nelson and Luck (4/26 – 4/29)

Wednesday, April 7th, 2021

Willie Nelson and Luck Presents announce first annual cannabis convention, Luck Summit: Planting the Seed, benefiting HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project.

The Virtual programming begins on 4/26 and will air through Willie Nelson’s birthday on 4/29

“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”-Willie Nelson

Hosted by Nathanial Rateliff, the multi-day virtual summit seeks to destigmatize, educate, and promote cannabis culture in an informative and entertaining way. During the summit, Luck and fellow cannabis-advocate partners will showcase the cannabis plant through its many lenses including history, science, entertainment, and culture. In addition to panel discussions and keynote speakers, attendees will be treated to musical collaborations, comedy sketches, cooking demonstrations, health-focused activities, and more. 

Additionally, team Luck is pleased to announce a partnership with the good folks at HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project, an organization that informs, registers and turns out voters who are interested in cannabis policy. “Willie Nelson is a music and cannabis icon, so of course we’re thrilled to partner,” says Sam D’Arcangelo, Director of HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project.

“Texas and the rest of the United States are sitting at a cannabis crossroads right now. There’s no better time to celebrate how far we’ve come and have a conversation about where cannabis legalization goes from here.” All ticket proceeds from the summit will be donated to the Voter Project to aid in their efforts. 

Who is Planting the Seed for? The summit will hold space for honest, stripped down dialogue between industry veterans, casual connoisseurs, activists, artists, and everyone in between. Have something to say or questions about the benefits and opportunities surrounding hemp and cannabis as a commodity, and as medicine? This summit is for you.

What’s on the discussion docket? Civil discourse, building community, legalization through policy amendments, science, de-stigmatization, hemp and cannabis as commodity products and cash crops, taxation that aids the economy, decriminalization and pathways toward freeing non-violent offenders for cannabis convictions, de-stigmatizing cannabis in industries weary of engaging, cannabis history and prohibition, and so much more. 
The mission of the Luck Summit is to create a community discussion around destigmatizing, decriminalizing, and legalizing hemp and cannabis in the state of Texas and beyond. 

Sign up: Planting the Seed is a donation-based ticketed summit raising money for HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project. To register or for more information on the High Holidays, please visit high.holiday
Planting the Seed is the marque event of Luck’s “High Holidays,” a 9 day celebration of the cannabis plant and its many benefits which begins on 4/20 and ends on Willie’s birthday, 4/29.

Additionally, Luck Presents is petitioning the Biden Administration and Congress to make 4/20 to 4/29 the “High Holidays” in honor of the cannabis industry, and to celebrate Willie’s birthday.
