Almost Busted In Laredo

You could be in a coma and come out of it every 5 years to find that Willie Nelson was busted for pot possession again. He was busted yesterday in Sierra Blanca, Texas at an "Inland Security" checkpoint by Hudspeth County deputies when they stopped his tour bus and smelled something suspicious. Willie's 77 years old and a national icon and a true force for good in America. What ever your political persuasions, you have to like and agree with Mr. Nelson. I sure like his music. I predict he will get busted for pot again in another 5 years and again and again.  Finally, the papers will run out of ink to print up the stories...
He was released on $2,500 bond after admitting the substance found in his bus was his and allowed to continue after being held briefly. Here's a 2008 performance by Mr. Nelson of the song, Me And Paul, from his days as one of the  The Outlaws with Waylon Jennings & and Co from Country Musics first platinum album.....
"Almost busted in Laredo,
But for reasons that I'd rather not disclose,
But if you're stayin' in a motel there and leave,
Just don't leave nothin' in your clothes."

I just found this story on a news search and had to write about it on my own site. Willie ought to have his own nationwide pot pass stamped on his tour bus license plate... When are we going to stop messing with this guy and leave his happy ass alone? Jeez... they've already stolen most of his money for IRS fines and penalties, now he has to stop touring to fight pot charges? This is insane... Free Willie!
