What good is a busted Willie?
September 18th, 2006 - Country singer/song-writer Willie Nelson was cited for possession of marijuana and (magic) mushrooms. The 73 year old Country Music legend had his tour bus pulled over on a routine traffic stop by a Louisiana State Police officer. "When the door was opened and the trooper began to speak to the driver, he smelled the strong odor of marijuana." A search of the bus produced 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana and .2 pounds of narcotic (magic) mushrooms. Nelson and 4 others were released after being given citations.
Ok, so let me get this straight. Willie Nelson (and friends) get busted with 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana and a good amount of magic mushrooms and they get cited and released, and Tommy Chong is arrested and is made to serve 9 months in jail for selling drug paraphernalia on the internet? Where is the fucking justice in that? Please tell me that these guys are facing at least 2 years for their crime? Please tell me that Tommy Chong simply wasn't made an example of when he was thrown in jail for selling water pipes (bongs) on the internet when you can go into any local cigar/smoke shop and buy them legally? Please tell me that our justice system is not that fucked up?
As much as I am an advocate for legalizing marijuana, it is still against the law and he broke it. Period, end of story. One and a half pounds of marijuana is not "possession", that amount could even be billed as "with intent to distribute." Is this simply because a country singer got busted in a "country" state by what I can only assume was a country, redneck cop? Hot dang, yer Willie Nelson. I can't wait to tell Betty Mae I pulled over Willie `fuckin Nelson. Yeeeehaaaaaw! Is that weed I smell? I'm smelling the same `fuckin weed that Willie `fuckin Nelson is smellin. Hot dang! - Yes, it could have sounded just like that and you know it's true.
Oh, and was it supposed to be a mystery that Willie Nelson was a pot-smoking flower child all these years? Well, mystery fucking solved! - HA HA HA HA HA.
