Snoop Dogg arrested for marijuana possession

Looks like 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.” (EW contacted Snoop’s reps for a statement, but they did not immediately respond.)
