On the road again Willie Nelson may be in trouble again after border patrol agents found 6 ounces of marijuana on his tour bus Friday morning.

At a border patrol check point in Sierra Blanca Texas, an agent smelled marijuana wafting from Nelson’s tour bus, and when he entered to investigate, the agent found approximately 6 ounces of marijuana.

Sierra Blanca Sheriff’s deputies were called to the scene and arrested the 77 year old singer, and 3 others, on marijuana possession charges. The singer is now free on $2500 bail after being held briefly.

Nelson, who makes no secret of his love for marijuana, has been arrested on possession charges in the past.
