I've suffered from a spinal disease for 30+ years. Doctors are OK giving me the stongest of pain pills that stop helping due to tollerance. But mention pot and your a criminal. Stress is my biggest enemy, and like Willie says, Pot helps. I can't use it or I get cut off the little relief I get. Legalize it already and give me amd millions a semblence of a tollerable life.

I'm sure he'll skate, I mean, he's Willie Freakin' Nelson but you have to be seriously stupid no matter your star power to try and cross the Mexican border with any amount of pot. How many times has he been pulled over now?

Put his a$$ in jail he knew better.
You let one go then you might let them all go.
And if they let weed be legal nothing would ever get done this country would be on hold for a long time.
I know a guy and he smokes weed and drink reddog everyday, dont want to go to work, don't do anything around his house, his car is always broke down, he wear's the same clothes everyday, every now and then he might take a bath maybe, if he does go to work he has to be high, just worthless.
And he has the nerve to talk about the way this country is running.

Now this is someone that you want to have a CCW and sitting at a red light for 20 min waiting on it to change and lord don't say anything to him chance's are you are going to have a problem.
But for willie he has been smoking weed way over 70yrs. and he ain't going to stop untill he dies.
What did Toby Keith say "I'll never smoke weed with Willie again" and he was not jokeing Willie is a old dope head from the old school.
