Willie Nelson Messed with in Texas: Caught with 6 Oz. of Marijuana

Willie Nelson was arrested in Texas on Friday for possession of six ounces of marijuana on his tour bus, according to People.

The 77-year-old country star was on his way to his ranch in Austin when he got stopped in El Paso at a border patrol checkpoint. Furthermore, he could face up to six months in prison if he's convicted... bad news bears.

It's no secret that Willie's got a love affair with Mary Jane, especially since he's been on the cover of High Times, but seriously, six ounces? Dayum, Willie! Maybe you've been watching Cool Runnings a few too many times, getting to the point where you think you're not smoking, you're just breathing.

Either way, more power to ya for being old and toking without a care, Willie.
