That is just not cool bustin Willie for that little amount of weed. As much weed as there is crossing the border and some BP has to try and make a name for himself.

What a waste of tax payers money and this man time. It is sad and a shame. Willie I empathise for the ordeal that border patrol officer put you through. What do you care anyway, I am sure there was another six ounces across the border.

Just leave him alone. I'm not saying I think smoking pot is alright. He has always smoked and always will smoke pot. This will not stop him. It is just a waste of everyones time.

i'm a pothead & i must say that there is nothing small about possessing 6 ozs of weed. i would never travel with that much pot. an ounce at the most. when you have over an ounce law enforcement agencies try to slap an intent to distribute charge on top of a possession charge just because they can. good luck, willie!

Not Willie!
Six ounces shouldn't raise anyones wrath. As a previous poster pointed out, six ounces compares to nothing when POUNDS are being smuggled in from Mexico.

But, a $2500.00 bond is nothing really.

The government should lay off Willie! Willie should write an anthem about reforming government by not paying taxes. Six ounces of pot? Sheeeeeit, that will barely last the weekend!
