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.
Lay off Willie, seriously. It's not like he is going around doing bumps of cocaine and drinking while destroying hotels.. He is traveling America and singing songs about freedom. I can easily see how having a pound and a half of marijuana on the tour bus fits into that equation... He spends almost all his time on the road, bringing joy to millions, and putting his power behind causes that help people. I have trouble thinking of any artist who deserves to be an American cultural icon more.
Did you know Willie Nelson has a company that develops biodiesel?
