A U.S. Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.
Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 9 a.m. Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana. Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.
Sheriff Arvin West didn't immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.

Nelson spokeswoman Elaine Schock declined to comment when contacted via e-mail by The Associated Press.


Go Willie!!

Seriously. I think the man owns a home somewhere in Texas, as do some of his relatives. What does the state of Texas want? To motivate him to move to another state, so they can lose his tax contributions? I wouldn't blame him if he took that stance on things. They should be proud to have him as a resident (be it part time, or whatever), and just leave him alone.


X2. Very well said. Pot possession...sjeeezzzz. What's the big deal?

Cool of him to say it was his, which I'm sure at least some of it was. Hopefully he saved the others some grief. Why can't law enforcement spend their time on important things?

They want to put him in a "program" and "test'' him for a problem that he doesn't have.

It's a cultural war, not a war on drugs.

Willie said, [in his book] " When I gave up whiskey, and smoked pot instead, it saved my life.

The border guard was just doing his job, and Willie deserves no special treatment that the rest of us wouldn't get.

But this just shows how stupid some of our laws are, and how our government is wasting tax dollars in exercises that accomplish nothing, while serious crime goes unabated.

I'm with SCB on this. If the drug laws, particularly those concerning marijuana, in a state or at the federal level are ridiculous, then they should be changed.

However, I think Willie Nelson should get zero special treatment because he's Willie Nelson, because he's done a lot of good, saved a lot of farms, paid a lot of taxes, etc.

Imagine you and a celebrity are arrested for the same thing. The celebrity gets off, with a chuckle and a "thank you" for all the good he's done, and you get convicted, pay the fine, do the time, etc. In my opinion, that would be a situation far more screwed up than some arcane marijuana laws.
