This moron has been in trouble with the law for decades. He's gotten more than his fair share of his 3 strikes. It's about time he gets tossed away and actually receive proper punishment for once again committing crimes!

Obviously weed hasn't turned Willie into a vegetable or given him cancer after all these years. He should be in a research study about social smoking and its effect on people's lives. Willie can still play the guitar and remember all those lyrics & helps farmers all across the country through Farm Aid- We Love You Willie!!

Give me a break. They pulled him in for a few ounces of pot. Guess they have nothing else to do. Leave the guy alone and find the real bad critters.

Seriously! While this "agent" was looking thru a huge tour bus of a known pothead... 500 mexicans passed thru, 5000 kilos of crystal meth came thru, 50000 kilos of cocaine snuck by and unknown amount of pregnant mexican women so they could have the babies here & collect the welfare! Seriously I'm pissed that all my tax dollars were wasted on a bust of a man who IS WORKING TO PAY TAXES HERE!

I do not advocate the use of Cannibus Sativa, however, if
an adult exercising their free-will chooses to use any NATURAL
herb, that is a strictly individual matter.

This action by members of the Department of "Homeland Security",
is merely a microcosm of the ever-increasing "authority" by
a Godless, oppressive, and Fascist "government".

Three words, for ALL Fed-Weasels: Yahweh, is GREATER!

I'm confused. I have heard various arguments supporting the continued criminalization of marijuana. I have heard assertions that it makes you lazy, that it inevetibally erodes the productivity of a citizen. Of course, there has never been any proof of this, it is just something that is assumed to be true and has been since the beginning of marijuana's persecution.

Yet now we have Willie Nelson, a very successful and respected citizen of the United States, a man who has been praised by the powerful and the meek alike for his exemplary work to bolster the American farmer. We have this great example of the American spirit, thrown in jail for possessing a substance that damns him, by all accounts, because it makes him lazy.

Now I come to the same question I have been asking for years and to which I have never heard a valid answer, and the question law-makers in this country need to ask themselves: Why is marijuana illegal?

Leave Willie the hell alone already. Let him smoke his weed and play his music. He's done more for the people of this planet than a roomful of border agents or DEA fools.

I appreciate the way he took responsibility for the stash. According to AP, "Sheriff Arvin West... told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his." Now that is protecting your people and being a stand-up guy.
