Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe reportedly posed for a picture with Willie Nelson and the country singer’s weed.
A picture posted on Twitter by the 83-year-old singer’s wife, Annie Nelson, shows the well-known pot enthusiast sitting across from McAuliffe. On the table in front of them is reportedly a can of “Willie’s Reserve” — Nelson’s own brand of marijuana, according to Billboard magazine.

“Uh-Oh Trouble,” Annie Nelson tweeted along with the picture.

A spokesman for the governor, Brian Coy, said McAuliffe was only in Nelson’s trailer for a total of 10 minutes and did not recognize what was on the table nor would he have, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
“He was not and still is not aware of whatever was on the table or anywhere around him and wouldn’t know marijuana or related paraphernalia if it walked up and shook his hand,” Coy said. “He’s cool, but he’s not that cool.”
A reporter with the paper zoomed in on the photo and tweeted the picture showing the can of marijuana.
