Why can’t they just leave Willie Nelson alone? It’s no secret the man likes to smoke weed, and who has he ever hurt by it?

Friday morning Willie’s tour bus was pulled over at a border checkpoint in Texas, and 6 ounces of cannabis were found inside. I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds like one awesome party – until the bus got pulled over and Willie got arrested that is.

Willie was charged with a misdemeanor and posted $2,500 bond. So what was accomplished other than the little po-dunk county Willie was busted in getting some cash? But that was the point, wasn’t it? Willie is an easy mark. Willie’s bus is a huge, rolling easy mark.

Maybe Willie should paint his bus with “National Bible Tour” in big letters, or maybe “Alcoholics Anonymous Casino Night.”
