    Willie Nelson nabbed in massive Texas pot bust!!

    SIERRA BLANCA, Texas – 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.

    I'm not suprised by the pot, I'm suprised he got caught.

    This is not the first time he has been caught.Happened a few years ago too. Southern state as well if i recall correctly.

    I believe my son's ex girl friends father is Willie's manager. He was also the man responsible for bringing the Mighty VH to Tulsa back in the 70's. He and Noel Monk hit it off really well, and Noel loved the Cains Ballroom.

    How's that for six degrees of Van Halen separation?

    I'm not surprised by the pot and I'm not surprised he got caught...I'm surprised he doesn't get caught more often, given his history.

    didn't he say he lit up on the roof of the White House during the Carter Administration?

    I had to check the date of the post to make sure I wasn't reading old news. Sounded strangely familiar.

    Oh, and BFD. They got a notorious ne'er-do-well with 6 ounces of bud off the streets. .

    Thank god. Another filthy drug addicted criminal off the streets and FINALLY someone's celebrity doesn't just get them off.

    I swear, the arrogant disregard for the law that so many people have is disgusting.

    If it wasn't for Nelson and his kind we wouldn't be fighting a drug war or terroism.

    ...there...did I cover those bases well enough?

    You know, a few weeks back I was listening to the local talk hacks on the way home and a caller suggested that the goverment, instead of fighting the drug war, spend their money on poisoning the drug supply so that "addicts" are killed off and then the counrtry wouldn't have a drug war to fight. The guy argued that if we did that we would save the economy as well because we wouldn't be spending the billions on incarceration, police overtime, hospitalization, rehab etc etc etc.

    And guys like that call guys that use crazy sinners.

    Smoke one up for me Willie.

    Willie Nelson is the man for so many reasons.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Doesn't the U.S. Border Patrol have more important things to do than bust a 77 year old pot smoking musician? Outstanding use of time and resources...fellas.

    While getting ready to check out of our hotel this morning, my wife and I were watching CNN. They showed this story and, immediately afterward, a story about a drug bust that involved a tunnel from Mexico to the US, 10K kilos of weed, and possible murders. It kinda made me go, "Way to go, fellas! Way to get that Willie Nelson bastard!"

    They were probably waiting to bust the drug smuggling assholes coming in from Mexico and Willie's bus drove by.

    Well that's a 24 hour checkpoint east of El Paso on the interstate. Everyone has to go thru it. A tour manager, the driver or someone shoulda broken out the febreeze or something, made sure the bus was relatively clean. Now why the agents didn't just wave Willie thru, I don't know but their hands were sorta tied once they smelled the stuff. At that point they can't just let him go. Don't think Willie will do any time tho, maybe a fine.

    They did stop a 18 wheeler with 27,000 plus pounds of weed just the other day at the I-15 checkpoint in Temecula, Ca., if that makes you feel any better.
