Willie Nelson busted again for pot

A U.S. Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.

Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 9 a.m. Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana.

Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.

Sheriff Arvin West didn’t immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.

Nelson spokeswoman Elaine Schock declined to comment when contacted via e-mail by The Associated Press.

    Willie’s like a “National Monument”; ie., an icon to country western/folk style music generally with a heartfelt message. He’s a gentle soul and his only true love is his music and no doubt a “doob” along with his musical benefit he’s provided to our nation over time. There’s nobody in the musical domain quite like “Willie Nelson”.

    The Feds should give Willy a nationwide free pass; ie., ‘get out of jail card’ concerning his possession of marijuana and allow him to have “Willie Nelson” a ‘Bust free zone’ stenciled on his RV’s. : ))

      Congrats to the U S border patrol out there in west TEXAS, they have now offically stopped the flow of dope coming into our country by busting poor old Willie Nelson for a thimble full of pot. And for all those who believe that statement I will send to each of you free of charge an autographed picture of the EXTRA LARGE snowman I built down in front of the Alamo this past August during the freak snowstorm. It will be autographed by DAVEY CROCKETT by the way. I can’t get the picture out of my mind of 15 or twenty cops rumaging thru Willies bus and at the same time droves of illegal aliens and dope smugglers running by looking at the disturbance and laughing their rear ends off. Can’t you just picture this? That would make a hell of a cartoon, My only question to the border patrol would be this, Now that you have solved the problem of dope flowing into the US via Mexico by jailing an old seventy some odd year old singer/songwriter, will you no longer need all of those dope sniffing dogs… If yaul decide to retire all those poor old dogs I would be more than happy to provide a good home for one of them, I realize it would be hard for him to forget all those good ole days of sniffing out dope, but I would concentrate him on things like fetching sticks, sitting on command and rolling over getting his belly scratched.
