The rapper's weed stash on a tour bus was discovered by a drug-sniffing dog during a routine border crossing vehicle check on Jan. 8, reports TMZ.com. E! News confirmed the story and reported that the rapper was stopped at a checkpoint by the Hudspeth County Sheriff's Department in Sierra Blanca, Texas, a small town outside El Paso. Per officials, the stop took place on Saturday morning at around 3 a.m.
The drug bust took place in the same town where country singer Willie Nelson was arrested for marijuana possession in 2010.
Reports suggest that customs agents found a series of rolled joints in a red prescription bottle in a waste paper bin, and Snoop Dogg immediately admitted the marijuana belonged to him.
