If sometimes you have thought of changing career, why not consider applying to work for the weed company of Willie Nelson.
It is right that Willie Nelson is setting up his very own weed company and that he is looking for five employees to begin to work for him.
His company is called “Willie’s Reserve” and he is going to be using a variety of different strains for pre-rolls, edibles and flowers. He is currently looking for filling the positions of production manager, extractor, compliance officer, bookkeeper and sales director.
In one interview with Wide Open Country, he said that his brand is a way of giving back to the “pot enthusiasts that flocked to his shows”. He has also stated that he wants his stories to be the “anti-Walmart”.
For such a sought after position the salary is generous, with the production manager position being paid a cool $65,000.
Willie’s Reserve’s Michael Bowman told the Daily Beast last year, “(Nelson)wants it to be something that is reflective of his passion, ultimately it’s his. But, the development was by his family, as well as of their focus on environmental and social issues, and in particular this crazy war of drugs, and trying to be a bright light among this trail as we’re trying to extract ourselves from the goo of Prohibition” he went on, “it’s going to be very reflective of Willie’s life”.
One journalist asked Willie about why he goes into the pot business and he answered: “To prove a pint, I think. I felt like that if you really believe in something, why not promote it?”
