Willie Nelson Arrested for Pot Possession…Again

Home Alcohol and Drugs Willie Nelson Arrested for Pot Possession…Again

Willie Nelson, an American country singer-songwriter, author, poet, actor and activist, was arrested and charged with marijuana possession after six ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas. His bus was pulled over in Sierra Blanca, Texas at a boarder patrol checkpoint when the officer smelled pot. Nelson, along with three others were arrested on the spot. The El Paso Times reports that agents at a checkpoint searched his bus, called the Honeysuckle Rose III, and Nelson admitted the hot was his and was taken to the local Hudspeth county jail.
Michael Raphael, Nelson’s longtime harmonica player, tells Rolling Stone that the singer, who posted a $2,500 bond was only briefly held, and is in good spirits. “He says he feels great – he lost six ounces.”
Nelson had been a longstanding advocate for the legalization of marijuana. Nelson said in 2008, “It’s a matter of time, a matter of education, a matter of people finding out what cannabis, marijuana is for, why it grows out of the ground and why it’s prescribed as one of the greatest stress medicines on the planet.”
This is not the first charge brought against Nelson, or his band. In January, six of Nelson’s band members were issued citations in North Carolina for reportedly possessing moonshine and marijuana. In 2006, Nelson and four others on his bus were issued citations at a traffic stop in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana after authorities seized nearly 1.5 pounds of marijuana and three ounces of hallucinogenic mushrooms. Nelson and tour manager David Anderson paid a $1,024 fine and served six months of probation. At the time, Nelson said, “Both bus drivers were over fifty years old. The other guys were 60 years old. My sister is 75, I’m 73, so it’s like they busted an old folks home.”
Traveling on a tour bus? Smoking pounds of weed? Sounds to me like these guys belong in the movie “Almost Famous.”
