I have two new heroes in the war against the war against drugs: Kit Bramblett, County Attorney, and Judge Becky Dean Walker of Hudspeth County, Texas. Faced with the prospect of sending Willie Nelson to jail for up to 180 days for possession of six ounces of marijuana, they are instead offering him a fine if he agrees to play ‘Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain’ in court. “Willie Nelson is 77 years old and I’m 78,” Bramblett said. “He’s been my favorite artist all my life. We all know he smokes a little pot.”
