Ferguson, Cedric the Entertainer Think Willie Nelson's Pot Bust Is Absurd (VIDEO)

Cedric the Entertainer Talks Pot on 'Late Late Show'Craig Ferguson is upset about Willie Nelson's recent arrest for pot. He broke the news to Cedric the Entertainer on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). "No way! Are [the cops] still doing that? Come on," Cedric said. "That's like arresting Snoop Dogg for smoking weed."

The host said, "I'm not saying whether they should legalize it or not legalize it, but they should make an exception in the case of Snoop and Willie."

But Ferguson pointed out Nelson was an easy target, as Texas law enforcement discovered the marijuana when his tour bus was passing through a border control point. "It's an easy ticket," agreed Cedric. Ferguson joked, "Oh, I wonder if there's any pot on Willie Nelson's tour bus?"

So what Craig is saying is that because he is a celeb he is better than other people and the law shouldn`t apply.

So, how many of you that are saying the law is the law would be saying the same if this was a discussion of the illegal immigrant problem? Or do you only go all righteous on laws that you like?

I think it is absolutely outrageous that our government sends ANYONE to jail over pot. Child rapists and wife beaters get less time than someone caught with a little pot. The drug laws are draconian and out of control. Violent offenders are routinely released to reoffend, but heaven help you if you are caught smoking a little pot. People are so angry anymore. This is one of the reasons. Giving less time to violent offenders and filling up the jails with otherwise law abiding citizens like Willie has fueled much anger and distrust with our laws.

What is really absured is that some entertainers think they or other entertainers should be immune to the laws that other Americans have to abide by. Sorry if the Willy Nelson tour bus is an easy target. All the more reason for him to stop smoking pot which he should have done years ago. Fine and prison sentence. So be it. Only a "pot head" thinks it aids their creativity. What a double load of crap.

Relax people , I think that ^^ was the host joking.

But IMO I don't think anyone should have to pay $1000000s & years in prison for weed. Its just another of the many ways the Gov. is screwing us. First of all I don't smoke weed but if I was to want to do so it's my f##king body so I should be able to put what ever I want into it.

But that's like everything else, your home, your land, your car,,, NOPE it's not really yours if you still have to pay for it. How is anything really yours if they can take it away from you after you paid it off?

Illegal is illegal. Against the law for one it is against the law for all. Sorry Willie.

Right On! We all believe that anyone associated with Hollywood and entertainment is "special" and the rules the rest of we peasants live by doesn't apply to them (like paying taxes, illegal drug use, etc.) Poor Willy!
