West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg was arrested for possession of marijuana in Texas last weekend.
Last month Snoop stirred controversy when he was seen smoking a joint on stage and recording a music video where he sits next to a small mountain of marijuana.
According to reports, Snoop was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas after his tour bus was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint at 3 A.M. on Saturday.
“During a routine check of U.S. citizenship the inspecting Border Patrol agent detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the inside of the vehicle and requested the driver to pull into the secondary inspection lane for further inspection,” a Sheriff’s Office spokesman said.
“The agent requested all subjects to exit the bus so that a canine working the checkpoint could conduct an inspection of the vehicle. Upon entering the bus the canine alerted to a trashcan located at the rear of the vehicle where a red prescription bottle containing rolled marijuana cigarettes were located. A further search produced two other containers containing marijuana weighing in all total of 0.130 lbs.”
Officers said Snoop Dogg admitted the Marijuana belongs to him.
