Singer Willie Nelson, a longtimte supporter of marriage equality, who has covered and written (one for Brokeback Mountain) songs about gay cowboys, shows off his support for both marriage equality and marijuana in this take on the viral marriage equality meme.
Said Nelson to Texas Monthly:
"For same-sex couples, taxes are different, benefits are different, survivor benefits are different. It's crazy…I've known straight and gay people all my life…I can't tell the difference. People are people where I came from..It's
about human rights. As humanity, we've come through so many problems
from the beginning to here. I guess it finally had to come around to
this. This is just another situation, another problem. We'll work it out
and move on. We'll look back and say it was crazy that we ever even argued about this…I never thought of marriage as something only for men and women. But I'd never marry a guy I didn't like."
