County music legend Willie Nelson is a vocal advocate for the legalization of marijuana. His advocacy also extends to some public displays of smoking the plant. Perhaps this is not the best approach since doing so remains illegal. After his latest pot bust, the 77-year-old singer may now face at least 6 months in jail.
Nelson was en route from California to Austin, Texas when he was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint in West Texas. The smell of marijuana coming from the van was an easy clue for Border Patrol officials who eventually discovered six ounces of marijuana and took the singer to the local jail until he paid the $2,500 bail, according to The Guardian.
