BIG DAMN DEAL. Six ounces of weed is nothing. Alcohol is MUCH MORE addictive than weed and new study said alcohol is worse than cocaine or heroin as well. We really need to legalize this and stop harrassing people over private use of weed.

It's just stupid.

How does arresting poor old Willie make this country safer or better. This filthy Nazi government needs to be brought down. Leave our people alone and get the friggin jihadis. They loot the nations coffers and give the cash to their cronies. Makes me blind with rage.

Goes to show how much time cops and a corresponding DA wastes on this piddly azz stuff. They can't catch murderers but they can do this.

#14, brenda.....an ounce is one thing but 6 OUNCES...the other person who commented is correct; he could get INTENT TO DISTRIBUTE because thats a whole bunch of weed. Come on Willie, you know better!!!! Just throw a free concert and perhaps they will count it as good behavior. I love the FREE WILLIE....good post. Brenda, got any pot?

He's addicted to weed. Been sucking the bad stuff most of his life -- that's why he forgot to pay his taxes.
