Virginia -- A snapshot showing Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Willie Nelson and a can of the legendary country singer’s own brand of marijuana caused the Virginia Democrat’s office on Monday to quell any concerns about what unfolded when the two got together Saturday during a music festival in Bristow.In a photograph posted to Twitter on Saturday by the musician’s wife, Annie Wilson, the unlikely pair are seen smiling for the camera while sitting at either side of a table on the singer’s tour bus. A canister of Mr. Nelson’s own “Willie’s Reserve” weed is apparent in front of them along with assorted items including a coffee mug, a cowboy hat, a remote control and what appears to be a marijuana grinder.
“UH-OH Trouble!” Mrs. Wilson captioned the image.“One of them did not imbibe-guess which one,” she said in a follow-up tweet.Brian Coy, a spokesman for the governor, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Monday that the governor “had no idea” what was on the bus when he dropped by for around 10 minutes on Saturday to chat with Mr. Nelson and other artists performing at the Live Aid concert being held about 35 miles west of Washington, D.C., at the Jiffy Lube Live music venue.“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,” Mr. Coy told the newspaper. “He’s cool, but he’s not that cool.” The governor has “never touched a drug in his life,” the spokesman said.Mr. Nelson, on the other hand, has been a major proponent of efforts to legalize marijuana throughout the course of his decades-long career, and last year began selling his Willie’s Reserve brand of buds, concentrates and other cannabis-laced products within the handful of states where recreational weed is now allowed.“I’ve smoked enough, and I want to give back,” Mr. Nelson said previously. “Now that legalization is spreading across the country, there’s a great opportunity to build a company that can help a lot of people.”Marijuana sold under the Willie’s Reserve brand is harvested by independent farmers “in an environmentally responsible way” intended to revitalize small farms, according to its website.“Today it’s about helping our #FamilyFarmers & we were grateful 4 the Governor’s support,” Mrs. Wilson wrote on Twitter.Mr. Wilson, 83, has hosted the Farm Aid festival nearly every year since since starting it in 1985. On his official Twitter account, Mr. McAuliffe shared pictures of meet-and-greets with other performers from Saturday’s fest, including Alabama Shakes and Dave Matthews.Source: Washington Times (DC)Author:  Andrew Blake, The Washington Times Published: September 20, 2016Copyright: 2016 News World Communications, Inc.
