Willie Nelson Busted For Pot
Willie Nelson was arrested this past Friday for marijuana possession. The country legend was stopped at a checkpoint in Sierra Blanca and caught with six ounces of pot. Nelson posted his bail and was released. The singer has been arrested twice before for marihuana possession, most recently in 2006.
Relix contributor Steve Bloom spoke with Nelson for his site CelebStoner. In an exclusive interview, Nelson said, “There’s the Tea Party. How about the Teapot Party? Our motto: We lean a little to the left. Tax it, regulate it and legalize it. And stop the border wars over drugs. Why should the drug lords make all the money? Thousands of lives will be saved.”
Nelson is scheduled to perform at New Braunfels, TX’s Gruene Hall this Wednesday.
