SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Today is 4/20, so it seems like the perfect time to tell you that Willie Nelson will soon light up his annual weed convention.
The virtual event is called the “Luck Summit: Planting the Seed” and the goal is to promote cannabis culture with music, cooking demonstrations, several panel discussions and keynote speakers.
The event is part of what Willie calls “High Holidays,” the week that starts with the annual marijuana holiday on four-20 and ends with his birthday on four-29.
A quote from Nelson appears on the event’s website:
“I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”
To take part in the online summit, you will have to make a financial donation of at least 10 dollars to the Cannabis Voter Project.
