Snoop Dogg isn't the only canine with a nose for weed ... TMZ has learned the rapper was ARRESTED in Texas this weekend after a drug-sniffing dog uncovered marijuana on his tour bus.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Snoop's tour bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca -- a small town in West Texas where Willie Nelson was popped for weed back in 2010.
The agents claim they found a red prescription bottle with several joints inside. We're told the bottle contained under a half-ounce of weed.
Cops say Snoop admitted the dope belonged to him. Snoop has a prescription for cannabis in California, but law enforcement tells us, there is a zero tolerance policy for weed in Texas ... regardless of his status in other states.
Snoop was issued a citation for misdemeanor drug possession and released. If convicted on the drug charge, Snoop could face up to 180 days in jail.
Attempts to reach the rapper's rep were unsuccessful.

There are a couple hilarious aspects to this story that I can laugh about because I know Snoop won't do shit but pay a fine for this bullshit. So the cops found a prescription bottle with "a couple joints" and the bottle weighed "under a half-ounce". How fucking big were these joints jesus christ. I mean I'm pretty sure a bottle with several joints inside would weigh like 3 grams at most I mean these puppies must have been huge to use the half-ounce benchmark.
Another thing I find hilarious is that these cops used a dog to check Snoop's tour bus and all you got was a bottle of joints? That's called a loss, fellas, you get off the bus and thank Snoop for dealing with your bullshit and move on. How is it worth the hassle of dealing with a celebrities lawyers and agents and shit for under a half-ounce? Now if you found serious poundage maybe bust his balls but this? Waste of everyone's time.
