Believe me – nothing worse than playing for respect and losing!
Willie Nelson is 77 years old. He’s producing amazing music and touring almost constantly with acts a quarter his age. He raises more money for charity than anyone else in Texas. He has a black belt in taekwondo and plays pretty good golf. He’s on his fourth wife, having pooped-out all the other ones. He’s still making movies, and he won a Grammy last year. He’ll be 78 in three months.
He is a walking advertisement for marijuana use.

There’s a story, and I don’t know if it’s true, but if it’s not, it should be. A couple of decades ago, Willie was arrested for possession in Waco. During his trial, the arresting officer took the witness stand to explain that he stopped because there was a car on the side of the road and the driver was asleep in the front seat.
“And what was your probable cause for searching the car for drugs?” Willie’s defense lawyer asked the office. Continue reading “Juanita Jean busts the Willie Nelson bust with “Willie? Weed? Nooo…””
I might as well come right out and say I favor de-criminalization of marijuana for many reasons, including the spectacular failure of the “War on Drugs”, a multi billion dollar boondoggle, especially in today’s day and age where teachers are being shown the door and state budgets are being cut to the bone. So with today’s news that Willie Nelson was arrested for marijuana possession after his bus was stopped and searched by the border patrol for illegal aliens, I’d also like to remind our readers of the great price everyone pays when we give up our own liberties to satisfy a right wing lead effort to scapegoat Mexicans for all that ails this once great land (instead of the Wall Street executives that threw millions out of work due to greed and fraud and the demagogue politicians that enable them).

Without further adieu lets hear from Willie himself:
