As we all know, Snoop Dogg smokes weed and enjoys getting high. It’s not very shocking to hear that drug sniffing drugs were aware of the marijuana that was being held on his tour bus when they were crossing a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas. What I am shocked to find out is that he was arrested this time. I mean, how often must this man smoke and the police be aware of it? I’m sure that he has been let go and multiple occasions because of who he is and the persona he has built around this ‘medication’.
The performer (real name: Calvin Broadus) was busted by Texas cops Saturday after several joints were found on his tour bus. The weed was discovered by a drug-sniffing dog during a routine inspection at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, the same town whereWillie Nelson was popped in November 2010.
Like Nelson, Snoop Dogg claimed ownership of the marijuana found on his bus, which was searched by the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office. The rapper, cited for misdemeanor pot possession, was not booked or made to pose for a mug shot like Nelson.
This town must be needing some tourism money or something to continue busting performers for such small petty crimes. Sadly, this bust came after Snoop Dogg mentioned he’d like to discuss the legalization with the President, who is opposed to legalizing marijuana. I doubt Mr. Obama would be willing to sit down and hear him out after this arrest. Not that I really believed he’d do so before the arrest either.
