WATCH: Ted Cruz Rival Beto O'Rourke Jams With Willie Nelson

Beto O'Rourke is a Democrat running against Ted Cruz in this year's Texas Senate race. Before his days in politics, he played in a band, and earlier this year he called for an end to marijuana prohibition. Now, he has combined music and cannabis in a very cool way.

As Pitchfork reports, O'Rourke joined Willie Nelson onstage at Nelson's annual Fourth of July picnic in Austin, Texas. Alongside Nelson, Margo Price, and many other musicians, O'Rourke played Willie's stoner classics "Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die" and "It's All Gone To Pot", before ending on a rendition of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken?"

With northern California's renowned cannabis festival, the Emerald Cup coming up next month, we're reflecting on all the fun we had last year with cannabis influencer Elise McRoberts interviewing Herbie Herbert, a former Santana roadie and manger for Journey, as well as Steve Parish, who managed the Jerry Garcia Band and went on the road with the Grateful Dead. Back int he day, bands touring the world had to smuggle their cannabis into Europe and other foreign countries. Traveling with equipment and other gear, roadies would have to find secret places to hide the stash.
