The Rocky Mountain Hemp Association Is Auctioning a Willie Nelson Autographed Guitar

The Rocky Mountain Hemp Association is a non-profit that works as an advocate for the hemp industry in Colorado, with particular emphasis on the actual growth of the plant on farms.

So it is especially fitting that it is raising money by auctioning a guitar autographed by Willie Nelson: Noted advocate of both farms and hemp (and its byproducts).

The guitar -- a classic Yamaha acoustic in the style of Nelson's beloved Trigger -- went on the market today. The bidding is up to $2,000, and the estimated value has been set at $10,000. You have nineteen days, if you're so inclined.
