Snoop Dogg busted with (gasp!) weed in Texas




Here is a headline that's probably as close to expected as any celebrity gossip ever: Snoop Dogg was busted for holding some weed. In Texas no less. Yes, in the very same border town Willie Nelson was popped in a couple years back. Maybe their travel agents should be made aware of this problem.

Calvin Broadus and his entourage were cruising through the Sierra Blanca border patrol station in his tour bus when a drug-sniffing dog found a prescription bottle with some joints in a wastebasket, TMZ reports. It's surprising, really, that the dog even wanted to get close to Snoop's bus, less he OD on a contact high. The bottle contained less than a half-ounce of weed, so the zero-tolerance policy in Texas landed Snoop a misdemeanor citation and a court date. He faces up to 180 days in jail.

The fun part of all this, of course, is that Snoop, who admitted it was his, has a prescription for Mary Jane back in California. The Texas authorities don't care, though, hence the ticket. Maybe they're getting some revenge after Snoop told them to "leave Willie the f--- alone" back in 2010.
