Country singer Willie Nelson was arrested Friday on charges of marijuana possession by the U.S. Border Patrol in Sierra Blanca, Texas, CNN has confirmed.
No further details were available, and a message left for Nelson's publicist has not been returned.
To the U.S. Border Patrol in Sierra Blanca, Texas: Who is the victim here?
the people of the USA.
What?!? Willie Nelson smokes pot?!? It's a damn lie!
The news would have been if they hadn't found any weed!
Drunks all over Washington, but that form of drug use is acceptable! What a BUNCH of hypocrites!!! I don't, and never have used drugs. But why keep fighting a war that has been going on for over 40 years, with NO positive results.
Lets try to help people, not put them in over crowded jails. Just Common Sense . Save the prisons for real
criminals... Leave Willie the F$#@ alone. He is a good man that just likes to mellow out with pot instead of alcohol
politicains choice of legal drug.
Was this their evidence?:
He was arrested for his own good. Pot can do serious damage to a person's. Hopefully he will see the light and amend his ways and that goes for the rest of the pot addicts.
Seriously Frannk... seriously!? Let's arrest everyone who drinks or eats at McDonald's! I'll bet you are a conservative Tea Party member too. Your logic escapes me!
Oh please, I'm an ultra-conservative, and voted for a Tea Party candidate and I fully support legalization of pot. Please don't politicize it. I'd sure rather be in a roomful of stoners than a roomful of drunks!
I would not feel so all alone. Everybody must get stoned.
Picking on such an American icon... tsk tsk tsk. This drug war is such a complete and utter failure, and to make a fuss about Willie carrying some weed is just stupid. You may find out this isn't good PR for the drug war.
CJ......LMFAO you moran [sic]
Come on, guys, it's Willie! How much time do you think he spends in a day NOT BAKED on something?
I was wrong. Willie should be jailed for life.
It's time for a massive protest against the prohibition of marijuana! It's time to stop that madness and legalize this herb! How long are we going to put up with the insanity of the war on pot? Rise up!
yeah ok. Go back to sleep.
Hello my people; this is Jesus blogging. I did not invest drugs for you to use, only alcohol. You may now go back to your aimless boring lives.
No, sorry. It's OK.
I Like Willie but he is foolish going across the border to get his weed! If that is indeed what he did.
Cops will be cops.
Daves not here man!
Willie should go to jail as an example for all to see. I also love men.
Meanwhile the Us military turns a blind eye to the Opium crop in Afganastan and Law enforcement look the other way while pain clinics hand out " legal Heroin?oxy" like candy..
I was wrong. the US is doing ok, and they should arrest all pot smokers.
