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.
Willie, like all Americans, should be free to do whatever they want, as long as they don't harm another individual.
What part of Liberty, don't you people understand?
The U.S. has the largest percentage of prison inmates in the world. Most of whom are non-violent drug offenders.
This is a waste of tax-dollars, and a waste of humanity.
Open your eyes, people.
Willie Nelson, is an American hero.
aahhh, anyone for a cold one and a smoke!
Love to hear Bob Dylan,Willie an Mick Jagger sing accapella together.I'm kidding!
Whew, I feel So much safer knowing law enforcement is focussing on desperados like Willie Nelson! It's just a terrific use of taxpayer money and police resources. Now if he would only ask for a jury trial. That would expose the hypocritical,ludicrous,wasteful and craven priorities of our legal system.,
Ever grown your own weed? It's a ridiculously easy plant to cultivate; it IS a weed after all. I grew 2 lovely specimens on my balcony and neatly sidestepped the paranoia by attatching plastic flowers to the plants when they got tall enough to be seen: works like a CHAMP! Buds were amazingly sticky with resin at harvest time. Smash the cartels! Take a bite out of crime: grow your own!
Isn't it kinda like shooting fish in a barrel to stop Wille's tour bus? Nice detective work, Dick Tracy.
What a waste of time and effort. Nothing wrong with a ittle herb.
Watch they let this white boy go with a slap on the wrist and a fine. That's AmeriKKKa for you LOL!
Some white boy hey!!
Watch out America! Willie is gonna bring down the country cause he bought some weed.
Where is this news...we've known for years that Willie uses pot. Everyone has a bad habit of some kind, so leave him alone. Funny they go after the smokers, but don't tell people who smoke pot to quit.
So what's his bad habit?
When is the old man going to figure out he's too old for that crap?
Probably way before you realize you're an idiot.
Why is he to old "for this crap"? Why the hell would he change now that hes old, will you stop doing everything you enjoy when you get old?
Thank God the government is looking out for the American people and going after the real criminals that pose a threat to our way of life. Can you imagine if the police didn't get to Willie in time? What do you think would've happened? He might of actuallly smoked that pot! Oh God, Can you imagine?? CAN YOU IMAGINE??
To the people who say Willie has no money because of the IRS, he paid that off years ago. I really don't think this will cause him any financial hardship.
Perhaps after Obama is finished pardoning turkeys, he'll pardon Willie.
