Snoop Dogg Arrested For Marijuana Possession

Surprise, Surprise: Snoop Dogg Arrested For *Drumroll* Marijuana Possession!

- By Bossip Staff

Looks like all that greenery may have finally caught up to the Doggfather.

Snoop Dogg might have to find something else to do for a little while. On Saturday, Jan. 7 Snoop Dogg was arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents and detained after agents inspected his tour bus along a highway in Sierra Blanca, Texas after detecting “the odor of marijuana emitting from the inside of the vehicle” during a routine border patrol check. A drug dog sniffed to find “a prescription bottle containing rolled marijuana cigarettes” and “two other containers containing marijuana weighing in all total of 0.130 lbs.” (Ironically enough, Snoop’s friend and collaborator, fellow cannabis enthusiast Willie Nelson was busted for marijuana possession in the same region in 2010.)

According to a statement from the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s office, Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, “freely admitted that the marijuana belonged to him and he was placed under arrest by U.S. Border Patrol agents and detained.” The rapper was “cited for possession of drug paraphernalia, given notification of court appearance on/or before January 20, 2012 and released.”

We’d thought Snoop had a lifetime pass for smoking weed. Who’d wanna arrest him for getting his roll on. It’s damn near legal anyway. We’re sure he’ll find a way out of jail time like all celebrities that get caught with the sticky.
