It might be difficult for Willie Nelson to move forward with his proposed marijuana business. The country legend is reportedly looking to launch a chain of dispensaries in states where marijuana is now legal. But MarketWatch.com says the rules aren’t the same in every state, and even within some states the regulations differ from one municipality to the next. Experts explain that it’s not like opening a fast food chain — the inconsistencies in the laws make it challenging to get licenses for multiple states and find investors. However, pot activist Michael Bowman, who’s working with Nelson’s family on the initiative, recently told “The Daily Beast” he doesn’t believe they’ll run into any problems.
Nelson reportedly intends to sell his own brand of marijuana – Willie’s Reserve — through his chain of dispensaries. He’s said to be exploring opportunities in Colorado, Washington and Alaska, and hopes to launch his outlets next year.
