I agree 100%. Leave Willie alone. But, if you have ever met Willie in person, he is a vicious, mean SOB towards his fans.

Everyone knows Willie smokes- that's probably why the cops busted him! They should leave the poor old man alone. He isn't harming a soul and he probably has some ailments that could benefit from a purely natural plant that has medicinal properties.

I think Willie is trying to make a statement, we are all mad, just trying to smoke but we can't just let it all fall behind! I can't believe they actually threw him in jail man! We all know not to go around traveling with that much weed but I mean why not if you need to!
