Snoop Dogg Pleads Not Guilty To Marijuana Charges

Ohio state troopers say they found 200 grams on his tour bus.

His current Puff, Puff, Pass tour is named after the ritual of sharing weed, but Snoop Dogg says he didn't have any on his tour bus when Ohio state troopers boarded it recently.

An attorney for the lanky MC and two of his homies entered not guilty pleas in Ohio's Oberlin Municipal Court to charges of marijuana possession on Tuesday.

Two tour buses carrying Snoop and his entourage were pulled over on October 17 by the Ohio State Patrol for speeding near Cleveland. After smelling "burnt marijuana" on the MC's bus, officers said that 200 grams of the substance turned up in a search. Two other people on the bus were also charged with possession (see "Snoop Dogg Busted For Marijuana Possession").

Snoop was not present on Tuesday and is not required to be there when the case goes back to court on December 11. If found guilty of the misdemeanor crime, he faces a maximum fine of $250.
