Good news. Willie ducks the law. Again.
Willie Nelson, his sister Bobbie, his tour manager, and two drivers got charged with marijuana possession after a routine search of their tour bus. Why can't they just leave Willie alone? The man started a biodeisel company! In any event, they fined Willie and his tour manager, but dismissed charges against Bobbie Nelson. The important thing: No jail time.
And this is probably as good an opportunity as any to share my favorite Willie Nelson quote:
Me and my dog used to hunt rabbits up in Hill Country. Four or ﬁve years ago, I was up there visiting my cousin....I said, "Cecil, where are all the rabbits?" He said, "I ain't seen any rabbits in years over here," and I said, "Why?" He said, "Pesticides." I said, Well if pesticides will kill rabbits, won't they kill people?" I'm here today to represent the rabbits."
He said that at a Congressional hearing, at some point. I saw it quoted at a museum in Baltimore. I can't find a reference to it anywhere else, though.
Did I forget to mention this? They found some mushrooms on the bus, too.
