Everybody knows that there is a border control station outside of Sierra Blanca. It's been there forever. Why would they drive that route knowing that the BP have dogs?

These laws are DUMB. He wasn't driving under the influence- he was in the back of a tour bus hurting NO ONE.

He's almost 80, still touring the world and kicking ass- not sitting at home taking pills like most people his age. Nothing wrong with that at all.

He's a pot dealer even if he gives it for free to his 'people'. He should go to jail.

They can't protect the boarders and stop illegal immigrants from coming across. But you are going to arrest willy for pot? 6 ounces is barely enough for a tour bus , you know how many people are on tour bus? Maybe 20+ people smoking at least an ounce or so a day. GTFO. Stop the war on cannabis it will get you no where BIG brother.

How many illegals slipped across the border while they were ransacking Willie's bus? How many illegals slipped across the border while TSA was busy molesting children and grandmothers at the airports?

Border patrol needs GPS they're off a little and about as clueless as Sarah Palin. I'd say they're needed . . . on the border? Solution to the problem: Send all the unemployed Californians to shut down and guard the border once and for all - solve two problems at once. Isnt CA like 1/4 illegals and their million kids now? Sucking the resources and the very life out of the state. Did Nelson forget his prescription? It should be on display outside any vehicle he rides in, like a regiistration sticker.
