So, we all know Willie. We know he likes his weed. And this border agent has to smell it to have a clue? Really?

A West Texas prosecutor says that singer Willie Nelson can resolve marijuana possession charges if he agrees to plead guilty, pay a fine and sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” for the court.
County Attorney Kit Bramblett told The Associated Press Friday that he recommended those penalties to Hudspeth County’s judge Becky Dean-Walker.
Bramblett elaborated in an interview with the Daily Mail, saying “I’m gonna let him plead, pay a small fine and he’s gotta sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” with his guitar right there in the courtroom.”
“You bet you’re a** I ain’t gonna be mean to Willie Nelson,” Bramblett told the paper.
My guess is it was the I-10 “border station” that’s about the middle of nowhere west Texas… and not anywhere near a border. Willie! Take I-40 next time!
At any rate, you jes gotta luv a place where the Prosecutor says “You bet your ass I ain’t gonna be mean to Willie” and wants to hear him sing…
Remember that at one time in Texas simple possession put you away for 50 years, no parole. It wasn’t that long ago either…
If you would like to carry Texas next election, Grant a presidential pardon to Willie, in perpetuity, for marijuana… Folks would look right kindly on someone with that kind of understandin’ o’ things…
