Willie Nelson Leads Petition to Make April 20 part of a 'National High Holiday' - seriously

The petition may have been filed on April Fools Day - but it appears Willie Nelson and his Luck Reunion team are serious about making 4/20 a national holiday. 


They have launched a petition appealing to President Biden and the American public to make April 20-29 the National “High Holidays.”  



The announcement reads 


Ever feel like twenty-four hours isn’t enough time for your 4/20 celebration? Well, you’re in Luck. Team Luck is collecting signatures to petition the U.S government for the “High Holidays” to be nationally celebrated. Luck’s iteration of the High Holidays begins on 4/20, of course, and ends with a celebration of Willie Nelson's birthday, which falls on 4/29. This petition, while slightly in jest, aims to destigmatize cannabis usage and users, and to broaden the dialogue with Congress re: decriminalization and the many benefits of the Cannabis plant.


Help us: Luck Presents is petitioning the Biden Administration and Congress to make 4/20 to 4/29 the national “High Holidays” in honor of Willie Nelson’s contribution to the cannabis industry, and to celebrate his birthday. Sign the petition here. More info here.


He said it best: Willie Nelson, the unofficial patron saint of weed, said, “I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?”
