Legendary country singer Willie Nelson has followed through on his promise to join the cannabis industry with his very own line of marijuana, called “Willie’s Reserve.” Now he’s hiring to staff the company.

According to the Denver Post, Nelson is looking for five-full time staffers in Colorado, including a production manager, extractor, compliance officer, bookkeeper and sales director.

Although Nelson’s product line hasn’t yet formally launched, it’s about to do so. It’s unclear whether or not Nelson’s company will obtain its own storefront or simply sell product through existing retailers, as rapper Snoop Dogg agreed to do with LivWell Enlightened Health last year when he launched his own line of cannabis products.

Nelson will be partnering with Tuatara Capital, however, which will help finance the business venture in both Colorado and Washington State.

Willie’s Reserve has been in the works for nearly a year.
