Well, the pot-loving musician had to make arrangements with the court in Hudspeth County by Friday and RumorFix has learned exclusively that he's done just that and was fined a whopping $537. (Note the sarcasm)

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., was cited for having drug paraphernalia -- which is a Class C misdemeanor.

      So by saying, “note the sarcasm”, that means you don’t approve of the fine they levied on Snoop Dog for possessing cannabis?  You think they should have locked him up and thrown away the key for a substance that the National Cancer Institute now posts on their website as having an ANTI-TUMOR effect.  Get with the program Reefer Madness moron.

      They just want headlines and outrage. Whoever wrote this bs article was probably toking up and laughing the whole time writing it. Actually I totally agree with them (note the sarcasm!)

      Prohibition has triggered the worst crime wave in history.

      * It has helped escalate the number of people on welfare who can’t find employment due to their felony status. 

      * It has created a black market with massive incentives to hook both adults and children alike.

      * It has made these substances widely available even in schools and prisons.

      * It has escalated gang warfare beyond what was experienced in the days of alcohol bootlegging.

      * It has create a prison-for-profit synergy with drug lords. 

      * It has helped remove many important civil liberties from the very citizens it falsely claims to represent.

      * It has put previously unknown and contaminated drugs on the streets.

      * It has grossly escalated Murder, Theft, Muggings and Burglaries.

      * It has diverted scarce law-enforcement resources away from protecting citizens from the ever escalating violence against their person or property.

      * It has overcrowded the courts and prisons, thus making it increasingly impossible to curtail the people who are hurting and terrorizing others.

      * It has evolved local gangs into transnational enterprises with intricate power structures that reach into every corner of society, helping them control vast swaths of territory while gifting them with significant social and military resources.

      Imagine if we were to chop down every single tree on the planet as a response to our failure to prevent tree-climbing accidents. That’s what our misguided drug policy looks like. Isn’t it time we all should up and told the government we’re tired of being beaten and jailed so that pharmaceutical companies can poison and kill us for obscene profits?
