Scott Morgan says, “Legalize Willie Nelson’s tour buses”

I don’t usually cover celebrity pot-bust stories, but the repeated harassment of Willie Nelson’s tour bus is ridiculous and it needs to stop:

Seriously, if anyone has a problem with what a bunch of aging musicians do in their tour bus, then don’t go in there. If these guys were a legitimate threat to public safety, it shouldn’t take a probable cause search to catch them. If they’d run a Church choir off the highway wasted on shrooms and moonshine, that would be a different story, but they’re super old and it’s clear by now that they can be trusted.
To dispel any confusion, I propose federal legislation clarifying the right of Willie Nelson and his associates to do whatever they feel is necessary in order to have an awesome time. The smell of potent cannabis emanating from their tour bus should be interpreted as a sign that everything is fine.
