    Stop the war
    Save the earth
    Release our grandchildren
    Release our grandfathers
    Show Willie some respect
    Maybe he will continue to
    Walk the walk
    We are damned by
    Our own damn nation

    What punk rookie cop would arrest Willie for weed? That's like robbing an old lady. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

      Yeah, great logic. Following your logic I conclude that bread causes people to smoke crack, since just about everyone who has smoked crack has previously eaten bread. The better question to be asking would be how many pot smokers have never smoked crack. Correlation doesn't imply causation.

      I wonder how many alcohol abusers have NEVER had a beer. I'll bet it's not a lot. You've gotta start somewhere and I bet most people don't start with absinthe and rum. And those 2 drugs ARE harmful.

    Dont worry. We have instructed Goldmen Sacks owned congress to release Willie.
    We will also be legalizing pot after we have secured total control of all sales.
    This is not a big deal and I will not order a joint legislature of the congress to rectify the situation.
    Thank you.

    Possession is illegal. Sorry. Willie knows that. He'll pay his fine, go back to his bus and get baked. I'll never get sick of 'Stardust'. He's a true legend, talented to his bones and a pothead.
