Tha Doggfather was discovered with under a half-ounce of weed on his tour bus.
Snoop Dogg was arrested in Texas this past weekend after a drug-sniffing dog uncovered marijuana on his tour bus.
According to TMZ, Tha Doggfather’s tour bus was stopped by border patrol at a checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, the same location where Willie Nelson was arrested for weed in 2010.
Agents discovered a prescription bottle with several marijuana joints inside of it totaling under a half-ounce of weed. Snoop said that the weed was his and had a prescription for it, but Texas has a zero tolerance policy for weed regardless of his status in other states.
He was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and released. If convicted, Snoop could face up to 180 days in prison.
