This story can’t be told in just one toke, erm, take. Apparently, country music star Willie Nelson was arrested for possession of pot this weekend. He was on his tour bus en route to Austin, Texas from California when the Border Patrol police found the high-herbs on him at a checkpoint. Not the best way to start the morning, because he was supposedly busted at 9 am. No word on whether he had his morning hit of …coffee, by then.
Willie’s bail of $2,500 bond was posted the same day, so no harm, no foul. Besides, he’s used to being caught with “stuff” on his person. Never-learns-his-lesson-Nelson was busted in 2006 for pot and mushrooms when his tour bus was stopped in Louisiana because, as a spokesperson explained, “The tour bus was stopped on a common interstate vehicle inspection, and when the trooper approached the bus door a strong odor of marijuana was detected…” He was charged then, as he was this time, for a misdemeanor.
Next time, Willie, make sure you open the windows, or a light a candle or something. Especially when you know the po-po are a stop away. Duh.
