Willie Nelson’s daughter arrested for weed possession on 4/20

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Paula Nelson, Willie Nelson’s daughter, was arrested for possession of marijuana on April 20 in Menard, Texas.

Appropriately enough, April 20, or 4/20, is a date set aside every year by pot-smokers to celebrate the cannabis plant, usually in mass smoking events.

The 44-year-old singer posted her mug shot (shown above) on her band’s Facebook page along with this comment on legalization:

“I want to make sure that everyone knows i am not bad mouthing the officers involved in my arrest. I know they were just doing their jobs.. And they were very nice about it.. It would have been better had they smiled and let me go on my way home. But they don’t make the laws. That is where we come in.. Speak up on ‘Legalizing’ where it counts the most in your state. It’s ‘bad people’ who make ‘bad cops’ not the police as a whole.. Like i said all of the ‘people of the law’ i met during my 4/20 adventure were great and i’m better for meeting them. I made good friends in that police station . I’ve noticed a lot negative police comments.. I assure you the people i met involved were class act folks And again i thank them for being so kind AND the great publicity for the new Cd ‘Under The Influence’ xoxoox”

Paula is not the only one of the Nelson clan to get busted for this offense. Her father Willie has been arrested three times for marijuana possession. In a subsequent post on her band’s Facebook page, Paula admitted she may have received special treatment because she was Willie’s daughter.
