What a waste of 'law enforcement' energy (and tax payer dollars).

Nelson is a disgustingly dirty looking little old man. His immaturity finally caught up with his inflated ego. Boasting about puffing on the White House roof when Carter was POTUS was pure childish, and his singing ability is on par with that of Taylor Swift, (terrible).
Let him spend his few remaining years in prison, where he won't have to worry about paying his taxes and his drug of choice will be Pruno.

Good job border patrol..you stopped someone with 6 oz of weed yet you fail to stop the million of illegals crossing our borders that come here to leech off of the USA and the drug cartels that are bringing in tons of drugs to the USA. I don't condone Willie smoking weed but he always has smoked it and always will and he's very vocal about his use of it...so I would imagine that anytime any law enforcement officer sees his bus going down the road they know they can stop it and find weed on it...I suggest the border patrol officers get out and do their jobs of actually stopping all the s*** and drugs from Mexico coming into the USA instead of stopping Willie's bus every time they see it...maybe Willie needs to repaint his buses so they don't identify who's bus it is...what a waste of taxpayer's money...get out and to your real job border patrol.

While HIS bus was being pulled over, three double-trailer trucks filled with pot went past. Six ounces?? Not six TONS?? Just legalize it. Black musicians really WEREN'T raping white women in Alabama after smoking pot. It was all a lie that the Congress believed almost a hundred years ago. Do we STILL have to accept hate and fear as our guide in America?

Sierra Blanca, TX on the map is 20 effin miles from the US-Mexico boarder on I-10. The scandal here is dumber than cowsh** Texans (well, that's most Texans) and the rest of the right-wing nativist s*** in this country, with the help of elitist left s***, who think we should turn over more of our rights to the government, with checkpoints like this being just one example. Until the TSA starts groping them that is, then they starting screaming. You reap what you sow.

As far as pot goes the difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Republicans inhale.

I wonder how much of our nation's monetary deficit could be cleared up via the taxation of the sales of marijuana (if the government's underwear was removed from their ass and they just legalized it already).

Again, not a fan of smoking pot but keeping it illegal is fighting a battle that cannot be won.
