Instead of blogging today, we attach the latest news from Willie Nelson, well not the latest, exactly, because this item has been out for about a week. We agree with Willie and will probably join his party. I have a feeling it will be ten times more effective than NORML has tried to be. This is all new, since we have not yet read the details but, as we suggested in a previous blog (see December 2 blog), Willie has the power to put together a movement based on music and freedom. Like our buddy Bob Dylan, who put the Farm Aid bug in Willie’s ear, Willie has more fans than any standing (or lying or laying) President and has more power to change things in this torpid country, since he is not bound and gagged by a political party which is outdated and not in touch with those it is meant to serve.
We see that Willie set up a Facebook page for the party but only 922 people had joined so far but we hear that over 20,000 have joined the Teapot Party. A major concert and show of stars and cash support could be all it takes to make DC turnaround on the pot issue. Pols are good at keeping things from us but hate to miss a party…they might be badmouthed in their absence.
Go, Willie!…and while you are at it, maybe you can help all those young black and mexican men in the Texas and other states with archaic and sadistic laws.
Like Krazy Kat used to say…a tempest in a teapot!
|Willie Nelson Wants A National Pot Party|

|In an exclusive to CelebStoner, Willie Nelson responded to his latest marijuana arrest in Texas by calling for a new political party: “There’s the Tea Party. How about the Teapot Party? Our motto: We lean a little to the left.”
When Nelson’s tour bus was stopped at a border checkpoint in Sierra Blanca Friday morning, authorities smelled marijuana, searched the vehicle with K-9 dogs and found six ounces of marijuana. Nelson posted a $2,500 bond and was released four hours later.
“Tax it, regulate it and legalize it,” Nelson continued in his email to CelebStoner. “And stop the border wars over drugs. Why should the drug lords make all the money? Thousands of lives will be saved.”
