Ahh, Come On.

Willie Nelson was busted by U.S. Border Patrol last Friday for holding around six ounces of marijuana on his tour bus.
Border Patrol? Is busting a national treasure like old Willie for a couple of bags of weed really part of keeping the U.S./Mexican border safe?
Who exactly is Willie's pot habit hurting? Judging by his advanced age and the fact that he's still working, it's not hurting him any--so who is it hurting?
Is this really the best use of the Border Patrol's time?
There should be a new law that allows anyone over age 60 to buy and smoke all the pot they want.
America needs to stop clogging up the courts with stupid pot busts.
And they need to leave old Willie alone.

I am in total agreement Karen. If smoking some Mary Jane is helping to keep Willie this happy and healthy, I think I need to start learning to roll my own.

100% agreed. With all the killing and crap going on with the Mexican drug cartels why the hell is the border patrol wasting their time and our money on Willie? Their time would be better spent looking for more of those sophisticated drug tunnels and human traffickers.

If our government legalized drugs and taxed them, that would put a damper on the Mexican mafia and the war they're waging against the Federales.

They'll never do it though. Makes too much damned sense.

As for Willie, more power to him.

i, for one, would never want to touch an old willy.

Karen Zipdrive said...

I wouldn't want to touch him either, but I sure would get a kick out of getting loaded with him.

6 ounces of pot? You gotta be kidding.

Look at how the US government ignores entire fields of poppies in Afghanistan-- grown for it's opium to be made into heroin.

Nelson needs to get a Medical marijuana card, for what ails him.

I think that Willie should mail some of his pot to Vermont.

I don't have no connection.

Aw. I'm convinced of the Forbidden Fruit idea. "You can't have it!" and so I will.

I have to admit I love Willie and have been to many of his concerts..and I hate country music.

But I hate the drug war more. It will never end on the federal level because too many people and corporations make a ton of friggin money off it.

Free Willie Now!!!!! Oh wait..he did get out on bail...sorry, I just did my morning hippie speedball. ;)
