Willie Nelson to Co-Host Virtual Cannabis Summit This Month

Legendary country musician Willie Nelson will headline a virtual cannabis summit this month to benefit the HeadCount’s Cannabis Voter Project, an organization which seeks to educate the public and turn out voters who are passionate about cannabis.

The event — Luck Summit: Planting the Seed — runs April 26 through April 29, which is Nelson’s birthday.

The purpose of the event is “to destigmatize, educate, and promote cannabis culture in an informative and entertaining way,” according to the website. “During the summit, Luck Presents and cannabis advocates will discuss the plant from a political, ethics, economic, wellness, community, industry and science point of view.”
