Willie Nelson's Stash
Evidence photo of items seized in pot-puffing singer's tour bus bust
SEPTEMBER 22--Music and marijuana fans alike will appreciate this evidence photo memorializing the stash seized earlier this week from Willie Nelson's tour by Louisiana state police.
During a September 18 traffic stop, cops smelled a strong odor of pot emanating from Nelson's bus. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up about 1-1/2 pounds of pot and a bag of mushrooms. The drugs were later photographed on the hood of a police cruiser.
Nelson, 73, and four other bus passengers (ages 75, 59, 54, and 50) were issued misdemeanor drug possession citations and released at the scene. Thanks to our friend Steve Bloom, proprietor of the Blooming Ideas blog, for the heads-up on the evidence photo's existence. (1 page)
