EXCLUSIVE PHOTO: Willie Nelson's stash



When Willie Nelson's bus was searched on Monday in Breaux Bridge, LA on Interstate 10, a "routine traffic stop" turned into a drug bust. Louisiana state troopers found more than a pound and a half of marijuana (0.7 kg) and more than three ounces (91 grams) of psilocibin mushrooms. See photo above

The 73-year-old Nelson's was traveling west after performing at the Hank Williams tribute concert in Montgomery, AL on what would have been Williams' 85th birthday. The day before he headlined the Austin City Limits festival.

The online Post Chronicle reports: "Our friends TMZ.com spoke with a spokesperson for the Louisiana State Police who said, 'The tour bus was stopped on a common interstate vehicle inspection, and when the trooper approached the bus door a strong odor of marijuana was detected. The occupants were not brought to jail because it was not accepting [inmates] on misdemeanor charges.'"

The 73-year-old Nelson (pictured above) was charged with possession of both substances as were his older sister Bobbie Nelson, 75; Tony Sizemore, 59; Gates Morre, 54; and David Anderson, 50.

One of Nelson's recent albums, Countryman, featured a pot-leaf on the cover. The country singer is on the Advisory Board to NORML. Allen St. Pierre, NORML's executive director, stated: “This effort is a tremendous waste of criminal justice resources that diverts law enforcement personnel away from focusing on serious and violent crime, including the war on terrorism."

The source of the stash photo is the Louisiana State Police news release, dated Sept. 18.

The Smoking Gun, Mediabistro, Gawker, Defamer, Best Week Ever, Jossip, Nerve, We Smirch, Stereogum and Mollygood have all posted the photo on their sites.

Recommended reading: Bill Maher's column at Huffington Post, Wichita Eagle blog editorial and Rick Cusick's High Times interview with Willie, which refers to the red heart tin seen in the stash photo.

Comments:
I see Willie as a freedom fighter. That cop surely had more important things to do. The hypocrisy of our hopelessly outdated laws is embarrassing.
 
How is having all that a misdemeanor...??? If it was Snoop Dog, he'd be in jail.
 
Are you sure that is 1.5 pounds? It looks more like 1.5 ounces. The small bag looks like 1/8 ounce. Not that I would know.
 
Oh. Mah. Gawd. What was he, making a salad or something? What is all that stuff? Is that SPINACH! HE BETTER NOT EAT IT IF IT IS!
 
Damn, If he was black, he'd still be in jail!
 
The big bag looks about right, so do the shrooms. What is in that third bag? It looks too brown to be good herb, and Willie surely would not smoke Mexican.
 
Nah, you're misperceiving the scale of the bags. Look at the guy behind the wheel of the car. Those are gallon bags!
 
Is that all he had, Thats only enough to get the party started.
 
true, if it was snoop he would be locked up. And yes that is a lb & 1/2 you dummy. Dont talk about stuff you know nothing about. lol.
doesn't willy look high in that picture?
 
two comments
1) what is was he thinking? pot is ILLEGAL so he goes and carries enough around with him to supply himself and his crew for an who knows how long? not very smart
2) and as posted here earlier if i had been busted with this much stuff i would not be able to use my get out of jail card for free but celebrity icons sure have a stash of legit get out of a myriad of jams
 
That "small" bag is in NO way 1/8th, dude.

That's QUITE a lot. A third of that bag (perhaps a smidge more) would be 1/8th. Unless it's serious dirt stuff.

The small bag totally looks like a full ounce. Not that *I* would know what that looks like, either.
 
Willie should get a spice rack for the kitchenette on the bus. Then he could just put the weed into the oregano and basil jars, and the shrooms in the garlic pieces jar. That'd keep Barney Fife at bay.
 
fuck that cop. is the cop american? i question the officers legality as a citizen.
 
ummm wow you know nothing, thats definitely at least a pound...an ounce fits in a regular ziplock bag...come on guys
 
Awe, let him go---leave that guy alone. Although I'm not into drugs, I think pot's harmless. Alcohol is more dangerous! But wow...that's a whole lotta' weed!
 
Must have been some *heavy* pot, man!
 
no that does look like a pound and a half. wow
 
That asshole Toby Keith was on the Colbert show last week talking about how much pot Willie kept on his bus.

At the time I thought "Why would you fucking say that on TV!?!?"

So color me unsurprised...

Toby Keith is an asshat.

I can't believe how many people are debating the quantity of bud that Willie had. Read the comment left at 2:49pm again.
 
That is quite the stash! Too bad prohibtion of marijuana is still around.
 
As a representative for Ziplock, we are very proud to see how our products at least held the pot to be fresh.
 
This is Willie Nelson we are talking about, here, not John Mayer. Willie is real. To say nothing of the shit the cops DIDN'T find.
 
Willie is rumored to have THE best pot in the country.
 
You people want to argue about how much it is?! WHO CARES!!! It's alot and I bet it would get you floating off your ASS!! Fuck the Pigs and fuck this whole situation! I Don't even like Country but I love his stuff, I Feel so bad that a GREAT POT-HEAD is busted!! This is a lesson...not for carrying w/ you, but just to see all the people fighting for this is a LESSON for the GOVT.!!! Fuck These Laws and snoop would NOT be in Jail He's to good!!! So to all you FREEDOM FIGHTERS...KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT, and support all your local and national Marijuana Groups!! NORML IS THE SHIT and I'M PROUD TO SUPPORT IT AND TAKE ACTION!! And all you ass-holes that post ANONOMOUS- WHY?
YOU SHOULD PUT YOUR NAME (FIRST) AND BE PROUD!!!!!
 
Hey, do you guys realize that Hank Williams Jr outed willie and his stash on his bus?
Well Hank Jr. was on "Imas In The Morning" on Thursday or Friday
(Sept 14th or 15th) before Willie got busted and told Imas about being on Willie's bus and what goes on!
So the Cop knew about Willie smoking on the bus before he stopped the Bus..
It was a Right Wing Hit just like all progressive celebrities that are being busted and investigated for political purposes and to silence any decent of the Bush Administration.
Hope This Helps,

I had lettuce salad and mushroom risotto at lunch today! I know my rights!
 
Dude below how the fuck does that look like an ounce and a half bro thats not even close to an an ounce an a half more like 1.9-2.1 pounds bro learn ur measurments lol willie is spose to have best bud known to america
 
That poor guy just can't seem to get a break. You can take a man's home, but leave his friggin' stash the hell alone.
 
LAW DOE$ NOT = JUSTICE !
 
snoop dog would be in jail but that is werte he should be with all of the other jigaboo rappers in the world. its about time the wite man gets away with more than the damn niggers!!!
 
another strike against the War on Terror.
Now I can sleep easier.
 
That's more than a pound no doubt.
 
when guys like art garfunkle and willie nelson just keep get on gettin busted, they should just give them immunity... obviously they arent afraid of the law or the bd per...
 
"true, if it was snoop he would be locked up. And yes that is a lb & 1/2 you dummy. Dont talk about stuff you know nothing about. lol.
doesn't willy look high in that picture?"

Practice what you preach dude, Snoop got caught with 4 lbs one time on his bus and was let go. It's not a white/black thing, it's a have money and don't have money thing.
 
wether it was Hank Jr. or Toby Keith who "ratted Willie out" is totally immaterial. The cops are WELL AWARE of Nelson's past, they don't need anyone else to tell them what they already know!
 
Willie needs a new driver. He got caught in a routine roadside safety check. Any good trucker with something to hide knows how to avoid those spots. And with the quality of gange Willie carries, that smell could have been from recent smoke or bad storage ventilation. Somebody not sealing the ziplock correctly. Should have been double bagged maybe?
 
A number of Willie's travelling companions all copped to possesion of the stash, thus dividing the total amount by the number of people possessing it, making the amount per person much less than if Willie was charged with posessing the whole amount. Friends. On Snoop Dogg's bus... I'm guessing exactly zero people would confess to possessing the stash leaving the police to charge whoever was the most likely suspect. This is a comment about character, not race BTW.
 
the heart shaped tin is called "Rosebud"
 
Projects..Projects..Projects.. If you are like me it seems like there is never enough time in the day.. You get home late and leave early.. then the weekends thats another story by itself. My wife has found it easier to hire somebody if you we need help with remodeling ideas. She fond a great site for remodeling ideas at http://remodelinghelp4u.com and wanted to share it with you.. Im glad to find help when I need it.. I hope you have great luck remodeling your home...
 
I once attended a reception for Willie Nelson in Sydney Australia - it was a great party I think! Willie insisted that a waiter walk the room with a silver tray full of joints offering them to anyone who felt like getting stoned with Willie! Everybody got stoned and pissed and had a great time. I love Willie!

he is 73. leave him alone. let him smoke whatever he wants. it is not going to harm his health. he is not going to apply for FAFSA or federal job.
 
Dude, it was 7 ounces. Snoop dogg was caught with 7 ounces. In ohio. The laws are somewhat lax.

like this conversation as a whole.
 
@totaldismay 3:49

yeah but none of these arguments matter

fact is, if me or any of my friends got busted here in westside queens with that bag we'd be in central booking til monday morning

race/class/number of people copping the charge don't matter

dude got off mad easy

the legal system in the us is a joke
 
Maybe that smaller darker baggie is roach weed. Looks like it to me.
Sad that a plant can be illegal.
 
speaking as a parent, adult educator and concerned citizen - Ya' can't keep a good man down, now stop all this nonsense let the little guy go...he makes great music, alternative fuel, and paid his taxes. LA cops only recognized his song "I am my mothers uncle" - so don't get so uptight about it gang.

As long as the driver isn't joining in or catching a contact high then have fun.
 
We need a world wide united pot party. Kinda like the Greens, but for Pot. Its high time that we stoners from every part of the planet came together for our cause. To be free of harrasment. We are the truely innocent. While others rape the earth and poison the sky, and legally make a buck, what is the harm in a green oxygen giving plant? Its a question of our human rights. Stoners of the World, UNITE!
 
Willie got away with this like he was OJ Simpson...we arent trying to keep score on which race gets away with more, are we? There are many people who I know that smoke out of bags bigger than you have ever seen...a pound and a half is a bit much, but not out of the question...BESIDES, you cant bust Willie and send him to jail on Hank Williams' birthday!
 
Here's a little bit of math for those who can't do it:

1.5 lbs / 5 people = 0.3 lbs per person.

0.3 lbs * 16 oz per lb = 4.8 oz

4.8 oz * [about]28 grams per oz = ~134 grams per person.

Anyone who smokes between 1/2 gram and 2 grams in a session will be extremely stoned... about 134 times per person.

Thassalottaweed.
 
The pics look right. The dark vs. light small bags is probably dried vs. fresh shrooms.
 
Lock him up and throw away the key. Never could sing, and he's a long-term doper. We don't need him.
 
I have a new cd out that might be of interest to you and Willie Nelson. I can be found by google...Lowell BRown Cd baby. The songs are "willie Nelson Wears a Watch" and "Think About It". The latter deals directly with the prohibition issue. Thank You. Lowell Brown lowlo@hotmail.com
 
this willie nelson pot bust brings up an issue...my son got busted with 6 tiny pot plant sprouts...in northwestern new jersey...he was charged with 7 felonies...and jailed twice...he has a felonie record for 5 years...my son is now a criminal in the state of new jersey for pot plants that would not have gotten a mouse stoned...great state new jersey...stay out of warren county new jersey...the prosecuter...is a persecuter
 
I wrote this earlier this week about a similar incident:

Please don't take this the wrong way, but you've got it backwards.

The "illicit" drug trade is a $500 billion dollar a year enterprise.

The $50 billion that the USA spends each year on the War On Drugs is not a waste, it's an INVESTMENT that protects the half-a-trillion dollars that this "black" market brings in.

There's much more money in keeping certain drugs illegal than there is in legalizing them.

The street price of high grade marijuana is on par with the price of gold at $600 an ounce.

There's a reason for that.

What would happen to that price if it were legalized?

And how much revenue would be lost if the 750,000 Americans, (the population of San Francisco, or Washington DC), weren't arrested and jailed for it, as they are each and every year?

No two governments on earth today are of the same mind on anything, yet when it comes to "illicit" drugs, they're in complete lock-step agreement?

What's wrong with this picture?

Follow the money.

ALL I KNOW IS IF THE COPS JUST FOUND 1/2 A POUND ON ME I WOULD STILL BE UNDER THE JAIL AND YOU CAN'T GET ANY MORE WHITE THAN ME
 
Fascism and Pot cannot co-exist. We are living in a fascist country; it is understandable that they should bust him. When the people of this country wake up and smell the Fascism and get mad as hell, maybe we will enjoy freedom again in the United States. 911 was an inside job, people who smoke pot know this, people who do not smoke pot, most likely believe Bush and his fantastic lies. Poor Christians have been duped by this fascist shmuck with his Jewish Neocon programmers. If they get there way we will have world war three very soon. Tell all you friends to vote, to vote out all the Republicans, the lowest scum of the Earth. The Democrats stink too but at least they are sane. Marijuana is an anti-hypnotic it lets you see beyond the brainwashing of one’s culture. That’s why the fascists put more money and resources into pot eradication and punishment then any other so called drug, furthermore pot is not a drug it is a plant that God gave us.
If the fascists weren’t suppressing it, we would once again become the richest nation on earth. The products
that could be made from Marijuana would fill a whole page. One shining example would be bio-fuel to run our cars and trucks, getting us off Bush/Bin Laden oil. It’s you the people who put up with all this shit, who let the IRS steal most of your money, who do as you are told, who are good little Germans who sieg-hile to Bush that are to blame for this disaster in out country and the world. Hemp for victory!
 
willie rocks man. no one sniched him out.the whole WORLD knows what goes on in that bus come on man.not everyone is dumb.to all N.O.R.M.L. people, thank you for everything you do.
 
i once got thru Dallas/Fort worth airport security with a quarter bag after being searched. The lady said,"Have a nice flight." I put it back into my pocket and that was that. Then a year later, driving thru Little Rock (while pot smoker Clinton was in office) was pulled over and arrested after a small pipe was found (no herb). I do feel deep down these things are not black and white, willie or bob beandick or whomever, but it is entirely left in the hands of the pigs who want to 'do their job' and the good cops who know right from wrong.

dam fucked up cap y don't they just leave wille alone and let him smoke



ok everyone smokea bowl for wille
 
No more of thsi bullshit war on drugs. There's nothin wrong with grass or shrooms man. It's all just the man tryin to keep freedom of choice down. The man says, you can be free as long as you follow my rules and that's bullshit, nobody should have to follow meaningless rules against harmless plants.
 
Umm.... I certainly hope ol' Willie wasn't DRIVING that bus...

Can't give a damn whether or not he was high or how much weed he had, as far as I'm oncerned the shit should be legal. But if the driver was fucked up then he had better be in some serious shit right now.
 
I don't care if he’s is white or back this is not a racial thing. They don't put people in jail for misdemeanor. So don't try to sound like the victims its not even your case.
 
WILLIE RULES!!!!
 
what a dumb ass that sure dose look like a 1.5 pound to me and may be a lil under a 1/2 o to
 
Marijuana suppression is the main cause of migration to hard drugs.

As well, meth rocks are easier to hide than marijuana.

If you want to reduce meth use among kids, then legalize marijuana and regulate its production and sale.

Also give hard drug dealers the same penalties as murderers.

Finally ban users from a certain part of a city or municipality. It works for hookers; it should be used for drug users.

To prevent pot abuse, educate users on the correct way to smoke pot. The experienced user takes two puffs, puts out his doob and lights up when his buzz goes down.

Only drug abusers abuse pot.

Remember: 1.5% of people were addicts in 1903. Today, 1.5% of people are still addicts.
 
1.5 lbs = 24oz, bit more than personal
 
They need to just leave Willie alone. I've been listening to him lately and he's underappreciated.
 
Pot should be legalized. It causes absolutely no harm, and the money spent trying to suppress its use could be used for more efficient tasks. I can't really talk about the shrooms, though. Never had any.
 
These comments have been invaluable to me as is this whole site. I thank you for your comment.
 
Is there nothing better for people to do than pick on Willie?...So the whole world knows HE SMOKES DOPE...who cares? Before you judge Willie ask yourself'what have you done to better the world?'Smoke on Willie...like anyone could stop you!! love you
 
I wish I knew his dope man...
 
SMOKE POT EVERY DAY KOTTONMOUTH KING FOR LIFE AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THE KOTTONMOUTHKINGS ARE GO TO WWW.KOTTONMOUTHKINGS.COM THESE GUYS ARE THE SHIT AND WILLIE NELSON SMOKE ON SMOKE ON SMOKE ON THERES NOTHING WRONG WITH SMOKING A LITTLE BIT OF POT YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING I REPRESENT THE KOTTONMOUTH KINGS SOCIETY
 
WILLIE IS JUST LIKE HIS MUSIC SO DOWN TO EARTH .HE WOULD HELP ANYONE ,AND EVERYONE IF HE COULD WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE WILLIE NELSON. I MET HIM IN LOUISIANA I'AM NATIVE AMERICAN.IF IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN FOR WILLIE A HELL OF ALOT OF FARMERS WOULD NOT BE WHERE THEY ARE AT. HOW MANY OTHER CELEB. DO YOU SEE HELPING OTHERS ONLY IF IT HELPS THEM WILLIE IS AMERICA.
 
If the man has manged to obtain a tour bus, driver, and crew should his ability to make responsible decisions be questioned. Let those who live peacefully, live peacefully.


P.s. Are we really comparing Snoop D O Double Dizzle to Willie Nelson. Get Serious! The Gansta lifestyle, portrayed or otherwise Snoop subscribes to is far from the peace activist Willie Nelson.
 
nice pic ! And I was really enjoying your site.

ROLL US UP AT FAT BOY WILLIE! WE CAN PASSIT AROUND. I SAY THE HELL WITH THE POLICE AND LET WILLIE SMOKE HIM A FAT BOY AND I'LL JOIN HIM. I SEEN HIM IN HUNTSVILLE AL THURSDAY NIGHT AND IT WAS WONDERFUL.!!!!!!!!
 
they should leave that poor little harmless man alone to smoke reefer in his bus
 
They take most people in for bail and a night in the slammer for a joint in La.
The law must be selective!
 
As a long term former alcohol lobbiest all i can say is that the alcohol and cigarette companies are afraid of the impact on profits legalizing marijuana would have. i have spent 12 years of my life trying to eradicate this drug and now i realise my mistake. I see why the companies are afraid. no body would choose to get wasted on alcohol and stimulate their body with cigarettes if they could just smoke bud.
 
IM PROUD OF THE GUY LOOK HOW LONG HE WENT WITH OUT GETTING CAUGHT AND HES KNOW ESPECIALLY FOR SMOKING DOPE
