Where there’s Willie, there’s weed. Let’s just all come to terms with it.

‚ÄčWillie Nelson was supposed to play a gig in Kenansville, North Carolina Thursday night, but he had to cancel the show because of an illness.

But you know how it is on the road. The show got canceled, and the probably bored and stir-crazy members of his band managed to get themselves into some trouble there in little old Duplin County.
Agents with the North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement Division issued citations to three members of Nelson’s band for having moonshine whiskey and small amounts of marijuana, reports Laura Phelps at WNCT.com.

Willie makes the big decision: Shall I smoke the OG Kush or the Trainwreck first?

‚ÄčNelson, whose own fondness for cannabis is legendary, was sick and not present at the time of the arrests. According to Nelson’s website, the 76-year-old singer is too sick and in too much pain to play the guitar.
Nelson recently had carpal tunnel surgery on his hand, and according to his website Willie is in “terrible pain.”
Concert promoters told WRAL that the show is being rescheduled.
Nelson’s publicist Elaine Schock denied the report. In an email to WRAL News, Schock wrote that the “information was incorrect.”
Nelson’s past includes arrests for marijuana and for tax evasion.
The legendary singer was born in Abbott, Texas and has been on the music scene since the 1950s, when he established his career writing such classics as “Crazy” for Patsy Cline.
Nelson’s brand of music became known in the early 1970s as “outlaw country.” He and his friend Waylon Jennings were seen, along with mutual friend Tompall Glaser and Jennings’ wife Jessi Colter, as defining the genre.
Some of Willie’s hits have included “Always On My Mind,” “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain,” “On The Road Again” and a duet with Toby Keith, “Weed With Willie.”
