You Know It’s a Slow News Day When You’re Reporting That Snoop Dogg Was Arrested for Weed Possession

And if it happened, say, anywhere other thanTexas, which – ask Chace Crawford – probably has some of the strictest pot laws in the US, the attending officers would probably have just asked for a hit of that shit and took a few photos instead of arresting and citing Snoop.

TMZ claims that Snoop was busted this past weekend with approximately a half-ounce of pot, which he claims to have a prescription for, though in Texas, none of that medical marijuana stuff flies. Sources also state that if Snoop is convicted of the drug charge, he could get up to six months in jail.

This is, though, as you probably know, not the first time Snoop’s been busted for having pot illegally – he was arrested in 1998, 2001, and 2002 for pot possession. Then, again in 2007, Snoop was put on 60 months probation (that’s five years for all you non-math majors like me) after officers found pot, coke, and a firearm in his vehicle. He was released for good behavior, or whatever the f-ck you get released early for when you’re on probation, back in May of 2011.

Ironically enough, Snoop’s bus was stopped at almost the same place where Willie Nelson was busted for weed back in 2010. My guess is that border patrol had the heads-up that Snoop would be rolling through and had planned ahead of time on stopping his bus ’cause they figured it’d be a sure bet.

How do you guys feel about all this – cut Snoop a break or let the law lay ’em down low?
