Virginiaâ€™s governor Terry McAuliffe recently posed for a photo with Willie Nelson at the Farm Aid concert. But thatâ€™s not all he posed with.
The picture, which was tweeted out by Nelsonâ€™s wife Annie, shows the country music legendÂ and McAuliffe sitting at a tableÂ with a can of Nelsonâ€™s own Willieâ€™s Reserve between them. Annie captioned the picture â€śUh-oh trouble!â€ť

Willieâ€™s reserve is, of course, the singerâ€™s brand of marijuana â€” legally available for purchase in Washington and Colorado. Recreational marijuana use is illegal in Virginia.

After 8News reached out to McAuliffeâ€™s office for comment, as KXAN reports, the governorâ€™s spokesperson Brian Coy explained:
â€śHe was not and still is not aware of whatever was on the table or anywhere around him and wouldnâ€™t know marijuana or related paraphernalia if it walked up and shook his hand.Â Heâ€™s cool, but heâ€™s not that cool.â€ť
Coy also mentioned that McAuliffe is open to legalizing medical, but not recreational, marijuana use in Virginia. Not that he would recognize either if it wasÂ sitting on a table in front of him.]]
