Wow, it’s a good thing they busted Willie Nelson for some weed. He may have been on his way to destroy the Pentagon or board an airplane…oh wait…this is the war on drugs…that was the war on terror…I get my pointless, never ending, freedom crushing wars confused sometimes….
LAFAYETTE, La. –
Willie Nelson and four others were issued misdemeanor citations for possession of narcotic mushrooms and marijuana after a traffic stop Monday morning on a Louisiana highway, state police said.
The citations were issued after a commercial vehicle inspection of the country music star’s tour bus, state police said in a news release.
“When the door was opened and the trooper began to speak to the driver, he smelled the strong odor of marijuana,” the news release said. A search of the bus produced 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana and 0.2 pounds of narcotic mushrooms, according to state police.
Nelson’s publicist, Elaine Shock, declined immediate comment.
Also cited were Tony Sizemore, 59, of St. Cloud, Fla.; Bobbie Nelson, 75, of Briarcliff, Texas; Gates Moore, 54, of Austin, Texas; and David Anderson, 50, of Dallas.
Each was released after being issued a citation.
Nelson, 73, has recorded songs including “On the Road Again” and “City of New Orleans.”
