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.”
