WTF? Seems like the great detectives in some small back ass Texas dump have arrested Snoop Dogg for possession of weed. You might remember these were the same crack investigators who suspected that Willie Nelson's tour bus might contain some of the offending drug. Can we all agree that like Willie, the Snoopy Dog is a chronic and a delightful chronic at that? When the man cooks on TV with Martha Stewart he has reach a level of sheer awesomeness that we can forgive the occasional roach in his ashtray.
He did a concert in my home town a few years back and the papers printed that he told people to 'smoke 'em if ya got 'em' and many did partake as did the Snoopster and his band. No RCMP sirens coming to save the poor children that night. The next day it was reported that everyone had a good time. A good mellow time. And that is really my point.
In all the years that Snoop Doggy Dog has been music artist he has made no secret of his love for the ganja or as the kids call it, 'mary jane'. He sings about and talks about it to anyone who will ask him the question. I never hear about him making trouble or being a dickhead or slapping some woman around. When he did his family reality show he showed that he is also just a joint smokin' family man who despite his wealth and fame, raised a nice group of kids with their heads on straight.
Aren't there enough REAL drug kingpins for these numnuts to chase after? Didn't I hear something about there being a little issue with drug killings on the Texas/Mexico border?
FREE SNOOP DOG or as in this case, have him pay a meaningless fine and go on his way.
I can just imagine the conversation they are having with themselves in that Texas police station. They sould just put lawnchairs on the border and stop every tour bus that comes through. That's money in the bank, son.
If it’s your job to plan the touring schedule of rebellious rock, hip-hop and country musicians, you might consider organizing future itineraries to avoid the Sierra Blanca highway checkpoint near El Paso. It was there, The Associated Press reported, that the rapper Snoop Dogg was arrested on Saturday for a misdemeanor drug charge, which might not be newsworthy in and of itself, except that Willie Nelson was busted at that same border crossing in 2010.
In the case of Snoop Dogg, the hip-hop star was done in by a real snoop dog, which sniffed out some marijuana cigarettes on his tour bus after a border agent smelled pot on the vehicle. A little more than two ounces of the drug were turned up, The A.P. said, and the rapper, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and released. Judge Becky Dean-Walker of Hudspeth County told The A.P. that these cases are usually resolved by a no-contest plea and a mailed-in fine of up to $500.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
