The special is supporting the Last Prisoner Project, a "nonprofit coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives, and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry." In a video preview, Nelson took a hit and said, "Happy 4/20 out there, y'all. Y'all have a hit from me and pass it on." The preview's description reads, "This 4/20 at 4:20 PM CT we're bringing together artists, chefs, comedians, educators and more for 4 hours and 20 minutes of cannabis-centric entertainment hosted by Willie Nelson himself — all from the comfort of quarantine."0comments
Even a casual fan of Nelson's would know how fond the musician is of marijuana, though the 86-year-old told KSAT in December 2019 that he has stopped smoking due to health issues. During Monday's broadcast, one fan will be selected to be brought on air live with Nelson for the chance to chat with the legend and wish him a Happy Birthday ahead of his 87th birthday on April 29.
Come and Toke It is also giving fans a chance to have a smoking session with Nelson via the #comeandtokeit and #passleft challenge, which invites fans to share a video of themselves passing whatever they like to the left of their screen. Luck Reunion's website describes the challenge as "perhaps the world's only chance to knock smoking with Willie Nelson off their bucket list. Whether you partake or not, this is your chance to live the dream."
