Country Music Legend Merle Haggard is dead at age 79

PotnpoliticsAs an owner and administrator for a marijuana blog I always want to at least try and keep all my postings happy and cheerful. However, today we lost a great musician and marijuana activist in Merle Haggard. Merle was a Country & Western singer who passed away today April 6 on his 79th birthday. Merle had not been well for a while and had recently cancelled a number of his concerts in the last few months. He was also recently on tour with another country music legend and marijuana activist Willie Nelson.

In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, Merle admitted he was one of those chaps who was previously against marijuana legalization but his stance had changed over the years.  Merle stated education and maturing as an adult had made him change his stance. Merle Haggard was now a strong supporter of pot npoliticsmarijuana legalization which had been recommend for him by a doctor after some health issue. He had previously shunned the hippies for smoking pot, but smoking marijuana become something he enjoyed later on in his life.  I wish his family well and hope more folks will also get to be as cheerful as this late country legend. RIP Merle Haggard.
