Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession today, after 6 ounces of weed was found on his tour bus. An officer reportedly smelled marijuana when the country singer’s tour bus pulled into a checkpoint. Willie and two others on the bus were arrested. According to reports:

Sheriff Arvin West didn’t immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.

Willie’s randomly friends with Snoop Dogg so the marijuana possession doesn’t even surprise me that much. More interesting to me is the fact that he’s on tour. I, for one, didn’t even know he was still making music. Learn something new every day.
