Margaritaville 420?

Post by FinsUp6835 »

So as many people have heard Willie Nelson has decided to enter the Marjuana business and is coming out with "willies reserve." This said I wouldn't be surprised if Jimmy got his skin in the game. The potential for the market is huge. Maybe why he patented all those reefer trademarks last summer. I think it would be cool and makes sense. He has every kind of alcoholic and non alcoholic - why wouldn't he get into this if it has potential to get legalizd in many more states.... :pirate:

During Pencil Thin Mustache in Tampa this weekend, Jimmy mentioned medical marijuana enthusiastically during the verse referring to Jazz Musicians. Also, in 2014, he copyrighted the term Coral Reefer as an herb/plant.

Well we'll know when Jimmy and Alan Jackson release "It's 4:20 Somewhere".

I agree it would make sense for him to expand into the business.

He has been making medical marijuana comments every chance he can during the last year and with the trademarks he has chosen I think it is only a matter of time.

If we think the concerts are a trip now they are only going to get better!!

Why would that make him a sell out? Is kiss a sell out? Kenny Chesney? Zac brown? Dave Matthews? The Beatles? Bob Marley? Willie Nelson? There are thousands of others with commercialized products out there.

Matter of opinion, but I happen to like many of the mville products. They represent a lifestyle that I like to live. Are they all the best? No. But there are a lot of good products.

Breathe in, breathe out, move on :wink:

We don't consider it a sell out either. The items we have tried such as, the sun care, frozen foods, alcohol, coffee, clothing, drink blender, beach chairs and tailgating items we truly enjoy and think they are quality products. We are very satisfied customers of the brand. Also for us the brand represents the lifestyle we live and reminds us of our happy times. So for us it is a win win situation. See we hope and want these ventures to be profitable for JB and his companies. The more money he makes the more fun products we get to enjoy and the more fun places he builds for all of us to play at. When Jimmy wins he always passes it back to us his fans. Radio Margaritaville, Margaritaville tv, and the new all inclusive Margaritaville cafes being built on the cruise ships are perfect examples. So we're quote pleased with this.

I can foresee potato chips as part of his Margaritaville line in the near future. After all, he's going to have to take care of fans who get the munchies at his concerts!!! :D
