Snoop Dogg Arrested For Marijuana Possession

You’re not going to believe this, folks, so we hope you’re sitting down — Snoop Dogg was arrested in Texas during a border patrol checkpoint when drug-sniffing dogs uncovered marijuana on his tour bus. Snoop?! Marijuana?! Say it ain’t so!

Texan border patrol did a routine inspection of Snoop’s tour bus when dogs uncovered a red prescription bottle filled with several joints, ultimately adding up to less than half an ounce of weed. Though the rapper has a prescription for cannbis in California, it doesn’t hold up in Texas, which has a zero tolerance policy for drugs.

Snoop, who has practically made a career out of his appreciation for marijuana, admitted that the drugs were his, and was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and was released.

The most surprising thing about this story isn’t that Snoop was arrested for carrying under half an ounce of weed (what a threat to the community!), but that he was only carrying half an ounce of weed. Did Wiz smoke it all?
