Willie Nelson cited for pot, mushrooms

LAFAYETTE, Louisiana (AP) -- Willie Nelson and four others were issued 
misdemeanor citations for possession of narcotic mushrooms and marijuana 
after a traffic stop Monday morning on a Louisiana highway, state police said.

The citations were issued after a commercial vehicle inspection of the 
country music star's tour bus, state police said in a news release.

"When the door was opened and the trooper began to speak to the driver, he 
smelled the strong odor of marijuana," the news release said.

A search of the bus produced 11/2 pounds of marijuana and 0.2 pounds of 
narcotic mushrooms, according to state police.

A call to Nelson's publicist wasn't immediately returned.

Also cited were Tony Sizemore, 59, of St. Cloud, Florida; Bobbie Nelson, 
75, of Briarcliff, Texas; Gates Moore, 54, of Austin, Texas; and David 
Anderson, 50, of Dallas, Texas.

Each was released after being issued a citation.

Nelson, 73, has recorded songs including "On the Road Again" and "City of 
New Orleans."
