Really? This man has done more good for the people of this contry than most of your career politicians. He smoked on top of the white house! I say his getting popped at the border is just another example of lazy police work. Did he think he was gonna find a bus full of Mexicans? I think not. Did he think he was gonna find a bus full of Milk of Mag? I think not. He knew it was an easy bust. We love ya Willie and don't care if you puff just dont forget to pass brother.

It is about time the Government took such a violent criminal off the streets! We have to have safe streets for all the new amnesty recipients of citizenship so they have a safe place to use up all of our resources. Isn't that how Marxism works? Oops, I meant to say Oabamanation!

I was busted at the same ck point last August. I didn't have that much, and the ticket was $500. The interesting thing was I got cited for PARAPHERNALIA, not weed. They kept the weed but didn't list it on the ticket. Heard it wasn't worth their time to prosecute the smaller amount. We were going from Oregon to Texas. I'm NEVER leaving the west coast again !!!!!!!!

Ok guys lets chill because first and foremost this is Willie ****ing Nelson, he's been a staunch supporter of pot since it was made illegal. Hell there's even a song with there's a song out there about this man and pot smoking (I'll Never Smoke Weed With Willie Again). I don't think the man really cares that he got busted for pot, more that he got busted and the cops aren't going to give his property back.

LEAVE the Old Man alone for Pete sakes! How ridiculous! Who cares if he smokes weed? I take way more offense to America's tolerance of the serious laws broken by pro football/basketball players; the slap on the hand, and they go back earning millions a year; being cheered on by their dumb fans when they have NO MORAL character whatsoever.... so many peoples priorities are so messed up!

OMG! Six whole ozs. Dang good thing the government stopped Willie from moving such a load of drugs allowing us tax payers to sleep safer each night.
Great work you BP Keystoners we all feel great that you have good paying jobs with great benefits. Obviously the qualification standards are pretty low. This is a poster moment for legalizing Mary Jane everywhere.
