Willie Nelson's bag of marijuana just won't go away. A Texas judge has said she won't accept a plea deal relating to Nelson's drug bust in 2010, rejecting a proposal that would have had the country singer pay a fine of less than $1,000. "If Willie Nelson gets off with nothing, I'm not going to be part of it," judge Becky Dean-Walker told the New York Times.

Nelson was caught with marijuana during a 26 November traffic stop in Sierra Blanca, Texas. Although the singer faced up to six months in jail, a sympathetic prosecutor proposed he could be let off for just $378 (£236) and joked about a court-room performance of Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain. "You bet your ass I ain't gonna be mean to Willie Nelson," Hudspeth county attorney Kit Bramblett told the Big Bend Sentinel. Judge Dean-Walker later intervened, calling this "a joke that got out of hand". At the time, she seemed lenient, with reports that Nelson could simply pay a $500 fine, plus court costs,

Bramblett, Dean-Walker claims, is trying to go easy on "his favourite singer". Whereas agents originally recorded that they found six ounces of marijuana on Nelson's tour bus, Bramblett said the actual figure was about three ounces, plus "containers and paraphernalia". The prosecutor allegedly asked Dean-Walker to reduce Nelson's charge to a class C misdemeanor, which she refused to do. "If you're not going to do it for the guy in the corner, why do it for a celebrity?" she said.


How hard up is the government that they want to throw a 77 year old pot head in jail?

Sorry but it is the law. Doesn't matter your age at all or whether you agree with it or not. You break the law, you should be held responsible no matter who you are.

Jail should never be an option for being guilty of smoking weed. Law or not.

And it's been more then twenty years since I took a puff.

This might be the boost potheads need to get off and protest the pot laws.

And the same thing we did in the 30s during prohibition. We said Fug That!


Some laws are stupid and made to be broken, like the seat belt law. Good ideas don't always make good law. I'm leaving now, before this gets sent to the Tinderbox.:D

Yeah! Screw the stupid laws! Let's overthrow the government because us potheads disagree with a few laws!


I want to go any speed I want to on the highway too, so let's make sure we get rid of those stupid traffic laws too! And I'm sober enough to drive, screw that poo too!

Fwiw, I agree with legalization. But until a majority of us agree that it should be legalized, Nelson should be treated the same as anyone else should.

it's time for a change.

when it's time for you to vote in favor of legalization, don't be a hypocrite. educate yourselves on the truth..


that time is coming sooner than you all realize..
