Willie has done nothing but good for this country....look at what he has done for the American farmer and has been for years and years. So he smokes a little pot...big frickin deal..what the government is doing to us Americans is more of a crime than anything Willie has ever done and the good he has done is far more than our government will ever do. This is the biggest JOKE I have heard in a long time. I love Willie and more power to him!!

Willie was not likly to be standing on a corner selling weed to kids. He was more than likly to be sharing with his adult
peers who happen to share his apprecialtion for the cannibus...
