He has courted controversy in recent weeks after apparently smoking a joint on stage and recording a music video where he sits next to a small mountain of marijuana.

But it seems Snoop Dogg’s obsession with the drug has came back to haunt him, as he has been arrested and charged after sniffer dog sniffed out his stash in his tour bus.

The 40-year-old rapper was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas after his transport was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint at 3am on Saturday.

Ironically it is the same checkpoint where country singer Willie Nelson was busted for possessing marijuana in 2010, who the hip hop star vigorously defended.

A Sheriff’s Office spokesman said: ‘During a routine check of U.S. citizenship the inspecting Border Patrol agent detected the odor of marijuana emitting from the inside of the vehicle and requested the driver to pull into the secondary inspection lane for further inspection.

‘The agent requested all subjects to exit the bus so that a canine working the checkpoint could conduct an inspection of the vehicle.

‘Upon entering the bus the canine alerted to a trashcan located at the rear of the vehicle where a red prescription bottle containing rolled marijuana cigarettes were located.

‘A further search produced two other containers containing marijuana weighing in all total of 0.130 lbs.’

And the rap legend did not try to pin the blame on someone else, according to the lawmen.

The spokesman added: ‘Calvin C. Broadus a.k.a. Snoop Dogg freely admitted that the marijuana belonged to him and he was placed under arrest by U.S. Border Patrol agents and detained

‘At approximately 4:00am Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office was contacted and upon arrival, Mr. Broadus was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia.’

He was released after being told he has to make a court appearance on or before January 20, 2012.

The Mail contacted Snoop’s representatives, but has yet to receive a response.

When Nelson was arrested at the same checkpoint in 2010 Snoop said: ‘They better leave Willie the f*** alone.’

Snoop has a long history of legal problems, including a 1993 murder charge, from which he was eventually acquitted, numerous convictions for marijuana possession and in 2007 he was given a given a three-year suspended sentence after pleading no contest to possessing a gun and drugs.

His arrest comes after he announced he wanted to speak to Barack Obama in a smoky room so he could ask him to legalise his favourite drug.

In an interview on Hot 99.5 he said: ‘Before I even said “Hi” to President Obama, I would change the aroma of the room.

‘And then we could start conversing after we had that aroma change. You know what I’m talking about?’

The arrest comes after her raised eyebrows by sitting with a giant stash what seemed to be the drug as he recorded a music video for Smokin’ On with his chum Wiz Khalifa.

He was so pleased he took to Twitter to boast about the copious quantity of the ‘weed,’ which he will no doubt argue was not the real thing and just a prop.

Linking to a picture of the small mountain of the green substance, he said: ‘Wat a trophy.’

He was recording the music video for the soundtrack song from his upcoming stoner comedy Mac and Devon Go to High School.

And the hunky hip-hop hero seemed to be intent on looking his best for the shoot, as before he started lip-syncing a lacky was seen giving his hair a final gentle tease before the take began.

He certainly seemed to be enjoying himself as he recorded the video, which he will no doubt be hoping will help fire interest in a film which was originally intended to be a direct-to-DVD release.

In the flick Wiz stars as senior valedictorian Devin who obsessed with academic success.

However her begins to loosen up after meeting Snoop Dogg’s Mac, a teenage student who is street smart, but under performs at school.

Of course copious amounts of marijuana aid the pair in their bonding sessions.

This guy based his whole career around weed references. I can’t really blame the cops for targeting him.

It’s sad what America has become. Randomly stopped by the border patrol even though you’re not crossing any border. The next thing you know you’re in jail for some pot – so, it’s not really just a ‘routine check of US citizenship’ like they say. If that was the case there would be no reason to have a drug sniffing dog working the checkpoint. Regardless of what you think about pot this should upset anyone who believes in basic rights and freedoms.

That’s terrible, but not surprising. The south does not pretend to tolerate marijuana use. Texas especially will prosecute users of the herb the same as though they were violent criminals. While it isn’t right, they are quite open about their abusive laws and penalties. Someone with Snoop’s habits should stay in the friendlier states and keep a medical license. I wouldn’t advise Snoop to travel to Dubai either.

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Snoop should use this opportunity (with all that wealth he has) to challenge the unconstitutionality of the charges, of the unconstitutionality of the ban on all organic psychedelics which are after all freely given in nature.

No group of people have a right to forbid any from using what is freely available or growing in nature. If the case fails (doubtful) as so many people do use organics, Snoop should demand that he be allowed to renounce the US citizenship and seek asylum in a country of his choice where organics are legal.

Do it Snoop, fight for democracy, for the right to use what Nature has given us for free! Don’t be a victim or a legal-system wuss Snopp, challenge the system on a Human Rights angle to use what nature has freely given mankind ! USA! USA! Pull a MLK on the system Snoop! Make them regret even daring to target you!

  1. No doubt the 60 Minutes intended the story as a hit piece they committed fallacies such as Hasty Generalization, Straw Man, Appeal to Ridicule, Appeal to Fear, Guilt by Association, to name a few. When interviewing JJ McNabb, notice they never asked her where the proper boundaries of government are, and if (deadly) force is ever justified in resisting tyranny. The W. Memphis police chief came across as an arrogant bureaucrat.
