Willie Nelson is High on Marriage Equality: PHOTO


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."
