Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe visited Willie Nelson at a Farm Aid 2016 concert over the weekend and got more than he bargained for after a photo of the two went viral.
According to McAuliffe’s spokesman Brian Coy, the governor stopped by Nelson’s bus to thank him for his contribution to the annual music festival. The pair visited for “10 minutes or less” before posing for a photo taken by Nelson’s wife, Annie. Annie posted the photo on Twitter Saturday night with a caption that read “UH-OH Trouble!”

In the snapshot, the men are seen sitting across from each other on Nelson’s bus with a can of Willie’s Reserve marijuana between them. The weed brand is sold in Colorado and Washington but is illegal in Virginia. McAuliffe spokesman wrote that the governor “had no idea” that marijuana was on the bus.
“He was not and still is not aware of whatever was on the table or anywhere around him and wouldn’t know marijuana or related paraphernalia if it walked up and shook his hand,” Coy said. “He’s cool, but he’s not that cool.”
Nelson’s wife Annie Nelson followed up her original tweet with a message that read , “One of them did not imbibe-guess which one!!!”
What do you think of the photo and governor McAuliffe’s statement?
