Willie Nelson Busted

In today's super, shocking, surprising news, 73-year-old singer Willie Nelson and several members of his band were issued misdemeanor citations for drug possession early today during a traffic stop in Louisiana. Contrary to some early reports, he was not arrested.

Trooper Willie Williams says troopers smelled a strong odor of marijuana when the driver opened the bus door.

During a search of the bus, Williams said approximately 1 1/2 pounds of marijuana and approximately 2/10 of a pound of mushrooms were located on the bus.

Holy shit, 1 1/2 lbs. of weed? I guess when you're 73 years old, you need at least a pound to get you through the day.
