Yesterday, Snoop Dogg appeared next to Dr. Dre on the 2012 Coachella lineup, to the delight of everyone on the West Coast who was alive and capable of listening to music in the 90s. As the AP reports, Snoop himself appeared somewhere else yesterday: the Sierra Blanca border checkpoint in Texas, where border agents busted his van for possession of about 2 ounces of marijuana.
Snoop received a misdemeanor citation for possession which could potentially carry up to 180 days in prison and prompt a mass of Coachella attendees pouring one out for the homie behind bars. But there’s no real reason for alarm: most cases get off with a $500 mail-in fine, and we have very little doubt Snoop’s got that one covered.
Snoop should be back sipping gin and juice in California soon, where he’ll be in no danger of getting hassled before the festival. Snoop holds a medical marijuana card to treat “headaches” and “blurry vision.” In related news, I eat ice cream for health reasons.
Curiously, the bust that caught Snoop occurred at the same station that busted Willie Nelson for possession of roughly 6 ounces of marijuana in 2010.
