Willie Nelson and Diaz Brothers marijuana

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Country music legend (and pot icon) Willie Nelson was proudly displaying his new boxes of the new Nick and Nate Diaz line of marijuana cigarettes.

The company behind the pot products say “Nate’s Energy” weed is a pre-workout blend and “Nick’s Recovery” is to help athletes post-training.

Or, if you’re Willie Nelson … pre-show, post-show?

Willie Nelson in Las Vegas #WilliesReserve

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

I’ve occasionally encountered a busker in downtown Las Vegas dressed as Willie Nelson,but this was the genuine article.

Seemingly recovered from the illness that caused him to cancel last weekend’s performances at Venetian Theater, the country music icon turned up in the Arts District on Tuesday night. The “Willie Nelson & Family” performances were to return to the stage Wednesday night, and again Friday and Saturday.

Generating buzz by his mere presence, Nelson stopped at Exile Boutique apparel and guitar shop on Main Street, just south of Charleston Boulevard. He was on hand to promote his new Willie Nelson Reserve line of cannabis products, grown and harvested in Las Vegas by Redwood Cultivation. Willie’s Reserve is being distributed at eight area medical marijuana dispensaries.

Nelson walked in amid a haze of smoke that reminded of a scene in “Refer Madness,” or the Titanic number in “Jubilee.” He was greeted by a sea of well-wishers that included Corey Harrison of “Pawn Stars” and Plaza Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Jossel.

Keeping in form, Nelson fired up a few samples and passed them around the room, which swiftly took on the fragrance of a Snoop Dogg concert.

I asked Nelson about his health, which was the reason for last weekend’s cancellation of his shows. “I’m good. I’m getting there.” He then nodded to the throng in the store and said, “Good crowd, huh?” I told him, “I’ve been to a lot of events in Las Vegas, but nothing quite like this.”

“Well, we have a lot of good people working hard and I want everybody to be happy and get along,” he said. “We have a good product, and I think they’re having fun.”

He then offered a sample, lighter at the ready. “Not tonight,” I said. “Not any night actually.” And so it goes …


Willie Nelson launches Willie’s Reserve in Las Vegas

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

Marijuana advocate, country legend and actor Willie Nelson was at the music store Exile on Main Street in Downtown Las Vegas on Tuesday night for a private party to celebrate Redwood Cultivation becoming the exclusive cultivator and distributor of Willie’s Reserve in Nevada. I have never seen so much blue haze in my life!

When I went for dinner afterward, the restaurant staff wanted to inhale my jacket! Eight Las Vegas area medical dispensaries will sell his signature pre-rolled joints. In addition to Willie-branded T-shirts, hoodies, lighters and baseball caps, Willie even has dark chocolate almond bites, although for the party, there was no marijuana in the samples.

Nice to know that the bites are 100 percent vegan and gluten and dairy free. Willie, who begins a run at The Venetian tonight and returns Friday and Saturday, went behind the counter to chat with fans and fellow smokers and pose for photographs.

There has to be something in his Willie’s Reserve because his career has lasted six decades, he has produced more than 200 albums, and he celebrates his 84th birthday April 29. His ninth studio album on Sony’s Legacy drops April 28.

“God’s Problem Child” is an album of all-new recordings, adding 13 new songs to his repertoire. This album is the first to debut Willie’s all-new songs since “Band of Brothers” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Charts in 2014.

Willie says the album reflects on mortality while marveling at the beauty and absurdity of it. “God’s Problem Child” finds Willie at one of the creative peaks of his career writing and singing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that can only come from the kind of life he’s living.

One of his new songs, “Still Not Dead,” pokes fun at the many exaggerated reports of his demise he’s heard over the years, while “Delete and Fast Forward” is his unabashed analysis of the 2016 U.S. elections and how to deal with the aftermath.

“God’s Problem Child” opens with Willie’s performance of “Little House on the Hill,” a song written by Lyndel Rhodes, Buddy Cannon’s 92-year-old mother. Last October, a video of Lyndel hearing Willie singing her song for the first time became a viral sensation.

Willie continues to make music every day. When he’s not in the studio, he’s on the road again performing more than 100 shows in the last year, including Farm Aid, 4th of July Picnic, ACL Festival, First Outlaw Festival and more.

True to form, Willie rolled up in his touring bus Tuesday night and parked outside Exile. Post-appearance, he hopped right back on and took off for The Venetian.

Willie Nelson Busted (Star Magazine, May 24, 1994)

Willie Nelson was arrested in Hewitt, Texas, on May 10, after police found him asleep in the back of his Mercedes and discovered a bag of marijuana in his car.

Nelson, 61, claims he was returning home after a poker game when he pulled off the road due to bad weather.

“I played all night and was driving back to Austin,” says Nelson.  It was foggy, so I pulled to the side of the road to sleep, and the policemen found me.”

A Hewitt police report says officers “saw a man lying in the back seat who appeared to be asleep.  While looking in the vehicle, officers observed a hand-rolled cigarrette in the ashtray.”

“The officers tapped on the window.  The subject sat up, opened the door and identified himself as Willie Nelson.”

The report adds, “The officers believed the cigarette in the ashtray to be marijuana, and Mr. Nelson was placed under arrest for possession of marijuana under 2 ounces.”

“Mr. Nelson advised the officers there was additional marijuana in the vehicle.  A bag was found which contained a substance believed to be marijuana.”

Nelson was taken to the McLennan County Jail in Waco and held for two hours before posting bail.

“Mr. Nelson was turned over to the booking officers there.  Standard procedure is to fingerprint and photograph the individual and collect the person’s property,” says Hewitt Police Lt. Wilbert Wachtendorf.

“After his release, he returned to the station here in Hewitt, and retrieved his car, credit cards and cash.

“I was in the station when Mr. Nelson returned.  He actually shook the hands of the two arresting officers.  He was in good spirits, and seemed to be a nice individual.”

The charge against Nelson is a Class B misdemeanor and the case will be referred to the local district attorney.
