Snoop Dogg Arrested for Marijuana Possession in Texas
Rapper and medicinal marijuana enthusiast Snoop Dogg was arrested this weekend in Texas when a drug-sniffing dog discovered marijuana on his tour bus. The agents claim that a red prescription bottle with several joints was found in a trash can towards the back of the vehicle.
While Snoop is legally prescribed with his medicine of choice in California, Texas has a zero tolerance policy towards weed. When stopped and caught at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Snoop admitted to that the cannabis was his, was arrested and given a citation for misdemeanor drug possession.
Sierra Blanca is the very same town where fellow weed enthusiast and Snoop’s “brother from another mother” Willie Nelson was busted in 2010, provoking Snoop’s now-famous “They better leave Willie the f— alone” rant.
Under a half-ounce of cannabis was confiscated from the tour bus. Snoop Dogg has been released but could face up to 180 days in jail if convicted of the drug charge.
