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.
It is shameful when a man born to the earth cannot inhale the remedy the almighty lord gave us men to escape the harsh reality of this troubled world. Peace be with u Willie and may the lord of spirits comfort u.
Not god, allah gave us pot remember? DOLT
Do the Texas police have nothing better to do? The man is 80.
Not TX police. Border Patrol, federal officers you ninkampoop
Ahhh – got it. Apparently, if one becomes "old," it's O.K. to be a criminal without being held accountable! Priceless logic – NOT!
This keeps happening, he won't change..which is a shame because its a nasty habit. He also won't pay his taxes. Dirty hippy!
Yeah real nasty habit considering he's doing it at 80 years old and sees no il side effects. If you drink alcohol – which by recent studies is estimated to be worse on the body than cocaine – then you are an ignorant fool who would rather just throw cultural stereotypes on others because your a loser.
For one thing, Willie Nelson is undoubtedly cleaner than you are. For another thing, I'd love to raid your closet and see what kind of awesomely hypocritical skeletons YOU have, Good. I'm sure there are some doozies.
wow, since when is being AGAINST drugs make a person the bad guy?
there are many harmful effects of smoking anything, i.e. cancer.
and no, i don't drink. doesn't mean I'm perfect, but I'm not going to go around saying its okay to smoke weed either.
how sad that its come to this where its okay to defend drug use. when you see it ruin a few lives, maybe you'll think differently. tools.
For you to call yourself GOOD while calling Willie a DIRTY HIPPY tells me far more about you than it does about Willy.
you imbecile. I was saying "good" to him getting caught, not calling myself good.
HEY TARD, DID YOU PUT A IN PLACE OF U ?
willie wonka and pot brownie factory finally done in! "you have the right to remain mellow, and any brownies you eat may or may not be used against you in a court of law..."
I dont understand why they dont legelize pot and just regulate it the same way they do alchohol its alot safer ive never herd of anyone dying from weed poisoning people get drunk and act stupid people get high and wanna eat an go to bed pluse it would greatly stimulate our economy
Because we don't need another thing to FU society more that it is. get it? DOLT.
Pinga's right. We don't need another thing to FU society... I mean we already have religion. That does enough damage.
@pinga – Yeah it's the pot, not the incarceration that's messing up society. What a great insight you have there, that nugget of wisdom is going to save everyone from harm.
Willie Nelson smokes weed? Next thing you know the government will trap, I mean arrest, Tommy Chong for lending his name to his kids bong company. Our pot laws make a lot of sense. Now excuse me while I smoke a joint and watch Sarah Palin in Alaska.
This is a new low for the police... I guess whenever they need a pot bust the grab poor Willie.. You know he's always going to have some pot on him, and I'd be concerned for him if he didn't. Leave Willie Nelson alone... LEAVE HIM ALONE!!! (picture the Britney guy).
LEGALIZE WILLI E NELSON NOW.
Willie is Mexican?
Willie is a role model he has brought joy to millions throughout his career may God bless him. he's in his 80's for 2 reasons God and ghonja. Free Willie!
you'll be mighty disappointed since god doesn't exist. now go back and read the fairy tales, I mean bible. STFU
You stfu. Who are you to stomp on what other people believe? Idiot.
Willie Nelson is only a role model for those choosing the low-life.
The war on drugs is the biggest waste of taxpayer money ever. It's a war on the will of the people. The opponents of legalization have never once provided a shred of real factual information that shows a need for the infringement on liberty.
My Willie has been free, do you want it?
OK pinga, let us get out our microscope and tweasers.
Geez leave the guy alone. Eh! come to Canada I'll light up with you.
Ridiculous laws enforced by buffoons. Good thing there isn't anything else important going on.
The Republican party is a house of contradictions. They proclaim to want government to stay out of their personal life (guns, religion, bedroom, etc.), yet pot should be illegal...
