Would have thought the old man smell on the bus would have obscured the dope smoke....

Willie Nelson cited for drug possession

28 minutes ago

BREAUX BRIDGE, La. -
Willie Nelson and several members of his band were issued misdemeanor citations for drug possession early today during a traffic stop in Saint Martin Parish.

The traffic stop was conducted on Interstate 10 near Breaux Bridge.

Trooper Willie Williams says troopers smelled a strong odor of marijuana when the driver opened the bus door.

During a search of the bus, Williams say approximately 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana and approximately 2/10 of a pound of mushrooms were located on the bus.

The 73-year-old Nelson of Spicewood, Texas; 59-year-old Tony Sizemore of Saint Cloud, Fla.; 75-year-old Bobbie Nelson of Briarcliff, Texas; 54-year-old Gates Moore of Austin, Texas; and 50-year-old David Anderson of Dallas, Texas were issued citations for possession of mushrooms and possession of marijuana and released.

I just saw Willie Saturday night at ACL Fest and he was clearly stoned out of his mind during his set. Put on a terrible show, but he was clearly having fun.

Massive Attack were also clearly high off their asses, but their show was all the better for it.

Misdemeanor for over a pound of green? Good to see they slapped him on the wrist.

You constantly hear people like Cheech Marin, Snoop Dogg and Andre 3000 claiming that they quit smoking. Whether you believe them or not, it's not surprising that they engage in spin control. I've always thought that the proho nazis would try their best to "make an example" of big icons (like arresting chong)

Willie Nelson live -- should I see him? Anyone been? Worth a shot? He's playing a rather nice (and small!) venue in Toronto this week...

depends on the venue

I say yes

of the 4-5 times i've seen him the smallish club show was by far the best

Hit-or-miss, sometimes he really phones it in, and his tendency to do medleys drives me crazy.

thirdalternative, Tuesday, 7 April 2009 01:34 (eleven years ago) link

how much are tickets? i saw him play....8 years ago? in a not-so-small venue in NH but the crowd was stoked and he signed my friend's cast at the end

The "Electric Horseman" soundtrack is one of the stranger (or most awesome) LPs you will find. Front side is pure Wille and the second side is Dave Grusin's take on fusion/disco.
