I just don't like pot. I've smoked maybe two dozen or so times in my life, but I hate inhaling the smoke, I can't stand the smell and I just don't like the high. But I certainly don't care about what other people do, and it's bizarre that we spend as much time and money as we do arresting people for pot. Not only that, we have Washington pressuring those states that are forward-looking enough to recognize the inevitable and try to figure out a way to make money from what is still our biggest crop:

SIERRA BLANCA, Texas (AP) — A U.S. Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 6 ounces was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.

Patrol spokesman Bill Brooks says the bus pulled into the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint about 9 a.m. Friday. Brooks says an officer smelled pot when a door was opened and a search turned up marijuana.

Brooks says the Hudspeth County sheriff was contacted and Nelson was among three people arrested.

Sheriff Arvin West didn't immediately return a phone message left at his home Friday, but he told the El Paso Times that Nelson claimed the marijuana was his. The singer was held briefly a $2,500 bond before being released.
