first_imgIf your image of Merle Haggard is the “Okie From Muskogee,” then clearly you didn’t know Merle Haggard in the 2000’s. According to a new feature in Rolling Stone, Haggard not only warmed up to the use of marijuana, but relied on it heavily to tour in the later years of his life.As the story goes, Haggard grew medicinal marijuana on his 280-acre ranch in California, and was particularly fond of sativas. Eyeing the new marijuana market in Colorado, his family had partnered up with Colorado Weed Co. to expand the operation, but unfortunately Haggard passed away on April 9th, 2016. Since then, his family has been working with the Colorado Weed Co. to get Haggard’s weed in distribution.“The sativas kept him going, kept him creative, kept him getting out there and being able to play,” says Colorado Weed Co.’s Michael Smith in the interview. Thus, the new strain – which will be called Merle’s Girls – will soon hit the shops in Colorado. They plan to expand into Washington, Oregon, and California in the coming years.Though Merle Haggard will always be remembered for his music, 420-friendly fans will now have a new way to honor his legacy.last_img read more
