California Medical Weed is Willie Nelson’s Best Hope

As you may have heard, country legend Willie Nelson was arrested in Austin, Texas for possession of six ounces of marijuana. He’s looking at six months minimum in jail, but could face up to two years. But Bruce Margolin, director LA’s of NORML, told TMZ Willie has a chance to skirt the charges — if he can convince a jury the pot was California-grown medical marijuana and he forgot it was on the bus. Like to see how the lawyers will play that one. “Ladies and gentleman of the jury, my client was baked out of his mind and completely forgot about that marijuana on his bus.”

Doesn’t really seem like it will fly, but for Willie’s sake, we hope it works.
