American icon and former Fort Worth resident Willie Nelson paid $780 and put an end to that marijuana arrest business. A border patrol checkpoint arrested him in November after they smelled marijuana on his bus and found what was initially reported as 5 ounces — but later mysteriously reduced to 2 ounces — of Willie weed.
If the cops hadn’t arrested Willie and confiscated his stash, it probably would have shrunk even quicker.
But the beauty part is this — with the pot charge no longer hanging over Willie’s head, he’ll be less stressed out and anxious when he comes to Fort Worth next month for his mammoth July 4 Picnic at Billy Bob’s Texas. (I don’t use smiley faces and winky faces in my writing, but if I did I would put one after that last sentence.)
