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.
The Kotton Mouth Kings said it best. Willie Nelsons not a criminal he was busted with some shrooms and some weed and it could happen to you or me. Willie Nelsons not a criminal so wont u let old Willie be free.
Yes there are laws and if broken you pay the price.. so maybe we really need to be looking at the laws. Really is Willie causing a problem in society by bringing his 6oz of pot wherever he is going. Does anybody think that he intended on traffiking it which i'm sure is what the arrest papers will say because its over a certain amount. The money spent on keeping pot off the streets could be better used in real policing.
Give Willie a break! He's been smoking pot most of his 77 years. Go after the cartels and serious dope (heroin/crack/cocaine) pushers. Jeeze.
HALF THE BOARDER PATROL ARE IMMIGRANTS THEMSELVES... MAN, THIS IS PATHETIC.
You keep lighting up Willie we love you Dumb cops find some real criminals to arrest.
Willie Nelson smokes pot?! Oh man, he's always been my hero – and now my image of him is completely tarnished! I just can't believe he's been arrested for DRUGS! Man, I didn't see that coming AT ALL! I'm just devastated!
Just leave him alone. He Is 77 years and still going strong. He isn't harming anyone. Let Willie out and Let him be.
Yeah, really! Free Willie!
Hopefully my fellow Texans find the words of this song important enough to drop the issues
"Federallies coulda caught him any day......"
The funny thing is they knew he would have some refer on him....dahhh. This just goes to show that sometimes the law is not always right does more harm than good......FREE WILLY....OR JUST "DONT TOUCH MY WILLY"
This is the least surprising news story ever.
Haaa!Oh, I know, it's like announcing that Nebraska is indeeda very flat state!I think I'll include it in my BBoD(Big Book of Duh.)
Priorities DEA prioities.
they'll jail poor Willie 'cause this country is full of hypocrites.
Legalize pot and smell the air...
All the Federalies say, they could have caught him any day.
Wow, what a waste of resources. I know it's against the law, but damn.
