Though Willie Nelson blazed a trail before him, this time it was another famous pothead arrested in the Texas border town of Sierra Blanca. Snoop Dogg and his tour bus were traveling through the town when they stopped at a border checkpoint and were busted for a measly few joints, which TMZ reports amounted to about half an ounce of wacky tobaccy. That's not a lot of green when compared with the whopping six ounces Nelson got busted with last year. Despite Snoop's claim that it was prescribed for him in California, where medical marijuana is legal, cops in Texas have a chronic zero-tolerance policy against drugs. The good news is Snoop can pay a $537 fine and the whole matter will be forgotten...unless he wants to challenge the citation and land in court.
