Willie Nelson was arrested yesterday at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas after agents reportedly found 6 ounces of marijuana on his tour bus. Mickey Raphael, Nelson’s longtime harmonica player, tells Rolling Stone that the singer, who posted a $2,500 bond was freed by 1:30 p.m. yesterday, is in good spirits. "He said he feels great — he lost six ounces."

Raphael says Nelson, 77, was traveling without his band from California, where he spent the Thanksgiving holiday, to Austin, TX, where he owns a ranch. The El Paso Times reports that agents at a checkpoint searched his bus, called the Honeysuckle Rose III, at 9 a.m. Nelson admitted the pot was his and was taken to the local Hudspeth County jail.

"It's kind of surprising, but I mean we treat him like anybody else," Hudspeth County Sherriff Arvin West told the newspaper. "He could get 180 days in county jail," the sheriff added. "If he does, I'm going to make him cook and clean."

Nelson’s publicist had no comment.

If the powers that be want to enforce the law how about arresting Barry Sartaro for treason for being the head of the UN security council and war crimes for using uranium weapons on innocent civilians? Or how about the felony of lieing  that he is an American citizen?

Instead they choose to enforce unconstitutional mala prohibitia non-laws on good people like Willie Nelson. The empire looses more legitamacy with each passing day. Actaully it has died but does not know it yet.

Here are some reasons why the cursota, cirrhotic unskilled rabid scum of the ages, made reefer illegal.

1. To get people smoking addicting tobacco and its addicting chemical/sugar additives in order to ruin the health of the people and keep them subservient and meek. Reefer is NOT addicting.

2. It competed with other fibers like cotton.

3. It expanded one`s mind instead of poisoning it (in moderation).

4. The greatest threat to their existence as parasites was the valid R an R/country/rockabilly music of the 1920-60s, and because the early musicians were invigorated by it, they had to ban it. Later they would cripple Rock entirely in about 1973. On 6-1-2002 Oz became the first country worldwide to ban the plant, salvia divinorum {diviner`s sage}. They know that only cattle-prodded slaves, not sages, will meticulously study their faces on tv, and vote to legitamize their scam. Little by little, herbs--nutrients etc known to promote sleep--healing--health--awakening, are being made illegal in health food stores. This is extermination by plant elimination.

6. Similar to absurd sex restriction laws, another reason why they made reefer illegal it because it`s handy to ruin the reputation of those who refuse to bow down and kiss their rear. Oh, and to feed the gestapo too when they get hungry. The public never quite cotton to what the real story is. They`re just too drugged up and in a meek trance thanks to years of listening to anti-music music, being taught anti-knowledge knowledge and the LEGAL drugs/chemicals they are encouraged to take.

7. To get people drinking taxable booze which often contains lead/alum/cadmium and other debilitating chemicals. Folks would simply grow reefer in their yards and avoid the booze taxes. They deliberately make societies a hell on earth in order to forcefeed people substances/ideas/things that are just about guaranteed to prevent armed rebellion. It`s possible to make homemade wine without chemicals but there`s not one author that i know of who recommends it.

Never mind the affliction

Bopperism is the cure

<i>"It's kind of surprising.." Hudspeth County Sherriff Arvin West told the newspaper.</i> 

We don't read them new-fangled books and newspapers in Hudspeth.  They's all written by east-coast libruls.

How self-aware can Arvin West possibly be if he thinks finding pot on Willie Nelson is surprising?
