(AllHipHop News) Rapper Snoop Dogg was arrested for possession of marijuana in Texas over the weekend.
TMZ.com reports that Snoop’s tour bus was stopped at a border checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, in West Texas.
During the Border Patrol agents’ routine search of the bus, a K-9 reacted to something in a waste basket.
Police said they found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside, with just under a half-ounce of marijuana.
According to TMZ.com, Snoop claimed responsibility for the marijuana since he has a prescription in California, but Texas has a zero-tolerance policy.
The rapper was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and released.
He faces up to 180 days in jail.
Attempts to reach the rapper’s rep were unsuccessful.
