Willie Nelson busted for pot – again
On his way back from California, Willie Nelson was busted in West Texas last week for marijuana possession. Nelson, who is 77 years old, was stopped near a Border Patrol checkpoint in El Paso; he paid $2,500 bail and went on his way. We are all for law and order and everything, but why do they even bother? I would think that if anyone should get a pass for blazin’ one now and then, it should be the Red Headed Stranger. As Ian McLagan says, “If you want to put somebody in jail, Tom DeLay needs a vacation.”
UPDATE: In the wake of his bust over the weekend, Willie Nelson has started a Facebook page for his Teapot party which has a mission of “Tax it, regulate it and legalize it.” Go Willie!
