WILLIE NELSON, OUTLAW
Last Friday, Willie Nelson was busted for pot in Siera Blanca, Texas. According to news reports, border patrol agents found six ounces of marijuana on Willie's tour bus. Six ounces of the stuff is a felony with a potential minimum of 180 days in a county jail and a maximum of two years, with a $10,000 fine. According to Fox News, the 77-year-old singer will likely do time in jail.
Marijuana is nothing new, of course, and it goes back further than the hippies and the beats and the crazy musicians. This clip is from the 1934 film "Murder at the Vanities."
