Snoop Calls Out Texas Cops For Arresting Singer Willie Nelson
Fellow marijuana smoker Snoop Dogg has come to the defense of world famous country singing - pot smoker Willie Nelson, who was recently busted in Sierra Blanca, Texas with six ounces of marijuana.
Snoop, who has a license to smoke cannabis legally in California, lashed out at the officer who arrested Willie Nelson, who many regard as an American icon.
"They better leave willie the f**k alone why are the f**king with willie nelson," Snoop Dogg told TMZ. "Sometimes y'all need to back up off certain people and have a certain amount of respect for your elders. he's somebody who lived through many decades of the music business, and hard times. give him that respect.
Nelson's ordeal began on November 27th, when Hudspeth County officers noticed the smell of marijuana emanating from his tour bus at a "routine" checkpoint.
A search of the bus uncovered the drugs, which the 77-year-old musician claimed as his.
"Who's the motherf**ker that arrested him? Who is the police officer that said 'you are under arrest and have the right to remain silent,' you dumb motherf**ker you, you stupid motherf**ker you!" Snoop Dogg snapped. "What you think you are going to gain by arresting Willie Nelson? He got out and he's back smoking right now."
According to Hudspeth County Sheriff, Nelson paid a $2000 bond and was released. If convicted, Willie Nelson could spend up to 180 days in jail.
"He could get 180 days in county jail, which if he does, I'm going to make him cook and clean. He can wear the stripy uniforms just like the other ones do,"Â said Sheriff Arvin West, who seemed to look forward to Nelson's incarceration.
"If you got a problem with Willie Nelson, you got a problem with me," Snoop said. "I got a weed license so you can't take me to jail for smoking weed. Matter of fact, I got some on me right now," Snoop said, before lighting up.
