Most widely known for his singing, songwriting, and acting, Willie Nelson is also known as an activist. 

Nelson started out as an activist for American farmers over 30 years ago when a huge number of families were losing their farms due to rising interest rates, dissolving property values, natural disasters, and volatile markets. The first year of Farm Aid raised over $9 million and has repeatedly outperformed expectations. 

Willie always promoted buying food locally and supporting families within your community and was one of the driving factors for him to launch Farm Aid. Today, Nelson is encouraging people to buy something else from local farmers: marijuana. 

Founded in 2015, Willie's Reserve is a company started by Nelson himself in hopes of creating a national weed co-op on the front lines of the legalization movement. Nelson's goal is to take commercialized and industrialized marijuana out before it really has a chance to form. Doing this, Nelson hopes to prevent large companies from dominating the market (where it's legal) and keep local growers in business.

Willie's Reserve is aimed at dedicated local growers united under one set of values and standards promoting consistency and quality. The company will license it's brand, grower's handbook, and list of standards to companies who grow the weed themselves, or buy it from smaller local farmers. This way, there will be a united national brand of weed, but it will keep the money where it belongs: in the communities it was grown in. 

Willie Nelson has been at the forefront of the weed movement for nearly half a century and doesn't plan on stopping until his mission is accomplished: burn out 'Big Pot'. 

Watch the video below of Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard singing their tune about weed, "It's All Going To Pot".

LYRICS BELOW

Well, it’s all going to pot
Whether we like it or not
The best I can tell
The world’s gone to hell
And we’re sure gonna miss it a lot

All of the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tennessee
Is just couldn't hit the spot
I gotta hundred dollar bill, friend
You can keep your pills
'Cause it’s all going to pot

That cackle-bobble-head-in-a-box
Must think I'm dumb as a rock
Readin' daily news
While I'm kickin' off my shoes
It's scarin' me outta my socks

The Red Headed Stranger I'm not
But buddy, let me tell you what
If you ask ol' Will, he'll tell ya here's the deal
Friends, it's all goin' to pot

Well, it’s all going to pot
Whether we like it or not
The best I can tell
The world’s gone to hell
And we’re all gonna miss it a lot

All the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tennessee
Just couldn't hit the spot
I gotta hundred dollar bill
You can keep your pills, friend
It’s all goin' to pot

Well I thought I had found me a girl
Sweetest little thing in the world
But all my jokes went up in smoke
When I caught her makin' eyes at Merle

He said, sweet little honey
With her eye on your money
She's gonna take every penny you got
I said she's never gonna get it
'Cause I've already spent it
Merle, it's all goin' to pot

It’s all going to pot
Whether we like it or not
The best I can tell
The world’s gone to hell
And we’re all gonna miss it a lot

All the whiskey in Lynchburg, Tennessee
Just couldn't hit the spot
I gotta hundred dollar bill
You can keep your pills, friend
It’s all going to pot
I gotta hundred dollar bill
You can keep your pills, friend
'Cause it’s all goin' to pot
