Willie Nelson

Charged With

Pot Possession

12/3/2010 6:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Willie Nelson has been charged with the unthinkable -- misdemeanor marijuana possession ... TMZ has learned.

Willie Nelson

Nelson was busted last week after cops found pot on the singer's tour bus at a border patrol checkpoint in Texas.

Cops initially thought Nelson had six ounces of weed -- which could have resulted in a felony charge. But now, officials have determined it was less than four ounces ... so Willie was slapped with a misdemeanor.

If convicted, Willie will be fined -- but not jailed ... but we think Willie can afford it.

The cost of doing business ...

Yet another reason to hate Texas. Every single brush I've had personally was dismal and swirled around tiny little hthinking and now this.

The state that brought us the Bush kid is now dumping on Willie for 4 friggin' ounces of something they think is dangerous.

God, what effn' idiots they are in Texas. A generalization? For sure, but it's so accurate about this awful state.

Just stupid from a state full of them.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Just for the record I'd be a total pothead and stoned every day if I could afford it.

What is the matter with Texas Law Enforcement? There is no shortage of crimes with victims there, or border issues that could use some focus; busting Willie is pretty lazy work for those guys. Next time Willie's driver sees the blockage for a border check, he should chase them down the road!

The issue with Willie is he flaunts the pot laws and 'the man' does not like that. It's definitely a type of selective enforcement. Fortunately he is rich enough to stay out of jail. He might have some sort of insurance problems if he becomes a felon. He's crazy to carry pot on a highway.

Well I don't condone anyone smoking weed but let's face it Willie has and does and always will..and he's very vocal about his use of it...so any time any law enforcement officer sees his bus they are going to stop it and find weed in it. But geeze it all started with the border patrol stopping the bus at a check point...you would think they would have more pressing things to do...like maybe stopping several more millions of illegals flooding the US or gee how about actually catching the drug cartel smugglers that bring in tons of dope every day...guess they figured stopping Willie was a sure thing ...maybe they get points for how many busts they make each day and they were having a slow day of actually busting drug smugglers and they knew it was a sure bust if they stopped Willie...Willie needs to repaint his bus..lol..so the law doesn't know whos inside..lol

Good for Willie that the cops needed 2.5 ounces.
Isn't this about like busting a bum for bumming.
