Willie Nelson is getting into the marijuana business in two states where pot is legal.  

Willie Nelson's people said in a statement Monday that Willie's Reserve will be a special brand of marijuana that will be grown and sold in Colorado and Washington, where recreational use of marijuana is legal.

A statement from Willie's camp said he plans to make it the best on the market, and Willie will collaborate with master growers to take the best qualities of different types of plants and combine them into one.   Willie has been a long-time supporter of legalizing marijuana, and now he's getting into its commercialization.

Oh, and he's still making music too.  Band of Brothers came out in 2014, and Willie still plays live shows as he can.  Rolling Stone just ran a story yesterday that said Neil Young is touring with Willie's sons, Lukas and Micah this summer as they promote their new album called The Monsanto Years.  The tour doesn't include any Texas dates, but it does include a Denver show.  Might Willie be at that one to watch his boys play?
