Snoop Dogg Busted For Marijuana Possession

Rapper charged after Ohio state troopers stop his tour buses for speeding.

Snoop Dogg was charged with marijuana possession after state troopers stopped his tour bus in Amherst, Ohio, Wednesday.

Officers pulled over Snoop's two tour buses for speeding on I-90 west of Cleveland Wednesday afternoon, and smelled "burnt marijuana" on the rapper's bus, according to a statement from the Ohio State Highway Patrol. With the help of a drug-sniffing dog, they found six bags of marijuana weighing about 200 grams in the bus' cargo area, the statement said.

Snoop (real name Calvin Broadus) was charged with criminal possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum $100 fine, and possession of drug paraphernalia, which could bring up to $250 in fines and 30 days in jail. Representatives for Snoop Dogg were unavailable for comment.

Two other passengers were charged with similar crimes. All were released, and no court date has been set.

The Puff, Puff, Pass Tour's next stop is Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Thursday (October 18) (see "Snoop Dogg Shares Stage, Proceeds On Puff, Puff Pass Tour").
