Willie Nelson In Marijuana Shocker

Follow Marty

It should come as no surprise to readers of this Web site—nay, any American who’s seen the red-headed stranger in concert or in the horrifically underacted Honeysuckle Rose (1980)—that Willie Nelson partakes of some illicit substances on occasion. So maybe the Louisiana cops who pulled over Bio-Willie’s tour bus were seeking entertainment too when they tossed the bus and found shrooms and Mary Jane hiding inside along with the sound equipment near Lafayette. The citing officer “smelled the strong odor of marijuana" in the bus, surprising no one. Some 1.5 pounds of marijuana and about a quarter-pound of mushrooms were found. Citations were given. Comments were declined. And at the end of the day the 73-year-old Nelson was on the road again. Hopefully, with someone sober driving?

  1. 1.5 pounds or 1.5 ounces were found?

    Don't people go directly to jail for 1.5 pounds?

    I love did he serenade himself out of jail?
