Willie Nelson is looking to “pay tribute to a tradition of sharing, caring and toking,” according to his weed website, williesreserve.com.

The fabled singer plans to hire five employees for his weed company, Willie’s Reserve: a production manager, extractor, compliance officer, bookkeeper and sales director.

Job requirements vary by position, but applicants could make as much as $65,000 per year, and need a chemistry degree and two years of experience in the cannabis industry, according to the online job applications.

Willie’s Reserve, “A trailblazing line of marijuana products that celebrate Willie’s love of cannabis and the culture surrounding it,” will roll out a full product assortment of flowers, prerolled joints and vape products this summer, according to the company’s website.

The company’s products will be grown by independent farmers, and will include an assortment of strains, cultivation methods and recipes.
