Willie Nelson: a book with his cannabis-based recipes

Willie Nelson has announced the publication of a book full of cannabis recipes, co-written with his wife and a celebrity chef.

Titled “Willie and Annie Nelson's Cannabis Cookbook: Mouthwatering Recipes and the High-Flying Stories Behind them” with hardcover and 256 pages, arrives on November 12 via Gallery Books and includes instructions on both butter, syrups, sugars and salts and dishes with grass as the main ingredient.

“Over a lifetime of study, I have learned that weed is more than a pleasure. Its positive properties are limitless,” Nelson said in a statement. “It's a blessing and a blast. It's good fuel.”

“Together with Andrea Drummerone of the most celebrated cannabis chefs, and my wife Anniethe most famous chef in our house, I'm excited to help you cook countless healthy dishes.”

The publisher reported that, “Taken from their favorite meals on national tours, at the ranch, at home, and in their favorite towns along the way, these recipes have stories to tell…and what better way to enjoy a good meal than with a great story and a relaxing atmosphere?”. “The recipes added by Gallery Books are delicious and easy to make at home. Chicken wings, chocolate cake, fried chicken. Only good things.”

Willie Nelson had a long history of arrests for marijuana possession. “They don't bother me about weed anymore,” Nelson said in 2014. “You can arrest me now and I'll pay my fine or go to jail, get out and 'light one up' on the way home.”

For the more impatient, the cannabis cookbook is available for pre-order.
