The AP reports

“SIERRA BLANCA, Texas (AP) — A U.S. Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.

Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 9 a.m. Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana.

Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.

Sheriff Arvin West didn’t immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.

Nelson spokeswoman Elaine Schock declined to comment when contacted via e-mail by The Associated Pres”

Don’t the police have better things to do?  I mean really.   With county fiscal resources being restrained as they are, police should not even waste their with busting Willie Nelson for having some weed. 

Go bust some real crooks than bust Willie Nelson.  I bet there is sheriff knew it would get him some press and so he decide to pull over poor Willie Nelson.  And just for the pitful crime of having some weed.

I am sorry.  This does not make some all star cop for busting Willie Nelson.  In my eyes, it gives you badge of shame.  It is simple.  The drug war is unwinnable and the Sheriff should know that.  People ain’t give up smoking and trying to take away ain’t going to work.  Mr. Nelson was not going out to rob the corner liquor store or decide to ambush a 14-year old girl and rape her. 

Mr. Nelson is gentle, old kindred soul that likes his weed and he should not be cited for it.  It is just a waste of time.

But the cops don’t get this message.  And precious police resources that could have been use for crime prevention go wasted on friviolus issues.  And taxpayer’s money were wasted.
