Snoop Dogg

ARRESTED FOR WEED

1/9/2012 10:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg arrested
Snoop Dogg
isn't the only canine with a nose for weed ... TMZ has learned the rapper was ARRESTED in Texas this weekend after a drug-sniffing dog uncovered marijuana on his tour bus.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Snoop's tour bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca -- a small town in West Texas where Willie Nelson was popped for weed back in 2010.

It's all pretty ironic -- considering Snoop RAILED against cops in 2010 for arresting the country singer, claiming, "They better leave Willie the f**k alone." (video below)



We're told the border patrol ran a standard inspection of the bus with the dog ... when the animal alerted the agents to a possible hit in a waste basket in the back of the vehicle.

The agents claim they found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside. We're told the bottle contained under a half-ounce of weed.

Cops say Snoop admitted the dope belonged to him. Snoop has a prescription for cannabis in California, but law enforcement tells us, there is a zero tolerance policy for weed in Texas ... regardless of his status in other states.

Snoop was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and released.

Attempts to reach the rapper's rep were unsuccessful.

1:25PM PT: The Justice of the Peace in Hudspeth County, TX tells TMZ, Snoop can resolve the entire matter by paying a $537 fine ... unless he wants to challenge the citation, in which case he can make his case in court.

The only place on Earth worse than Texas is Hell. Although the torment and torture in Hell are slightly worse than living with Texas Republicans, the temperature and humidity in Hell are slighty better.

There is nothing "ironic" about "it all". What is ironic, however, is being a writer and not knowing the definition of irony...

I kind of like Snoop Dog because he was in the "California Gurls" song and video with Katy Perry.

Snoop is alright these days. He's kind of a family man. He's had some good songs over the years like "Gin and Juice". The video is pretty good. Love that deep, heavy bass guitar. I like that funky "Red Hot Chili Peppers" kind of sound.

If Snoop Dog knows Willie Nelson pretty well, maybe Willie could call Billy Gibbons from the rock group "ZZ Top" and they could put in a good word in for Snoop Dog with the D.A. Who knows, it might work.

I bet Billy has a little clout with some people in Texas ... even with all that long hair and beard. George W. Bush even wore a "ZZ Top" hat when he was President one time.

Billy Gibbons is by far THE coolest guy to ever come out of Texas. He's a genius playing the guitar. Singing too.

He was just awesome back in the 1970s and the 1980s too for that matter. I wish I could have been around to see them back then. Like on their 1980 concert tour ...
