Snoop Dogg will probably win lots of votes for boss of the year. I don't know how many employers would risk going to jail for their employees, but Snoop did. Of course, it is probably all his fault in the first place that his employee is going to jail, so maybe it is best to work for a boss who doesn't do anything illegal and that way this never becomes an issue.
Anyway, Snoop and his crew were in Norfolk, Virginia yesterday when the police were notified by hotel employees at the hotel in which Snoop was staying that there was a suspicious package which had been delivered. Obviously rule #1 here is that if you are expecting a suspicious package, tip the people at the front desk as to avoid any unnecessary phone calls to the police.
Well, the cops show up and somehow determine the package contains pot flown in from Canada. They then arrested the man to whom the package was addressed. At that point, in glides Snoop. You know he doesn't walk. He glides. Probably in a bathrobe. Anyway he tells the police that the pot in question belongs to him, flashed his medical marijuana card and said to let his man go. The cops refused.
As far as I know, Virginia doesn't have a medical marijuana program. It is a state by state thing and has no applicability from state to state because it is against federal law. Just because it will now not be enforced, doesn't make it any more legal. So, yeah, that argument isn't going to work for Snoop. He is lucky the federal government isn't involved. You are shipping in illegal drugs through the mail from a foreign country. Plus, good luck next time you want to go to Canada. I don't understand why they couldn't just get some pot from a local person.
I am interested to know if this is Snoop's fault, or if the guy ordered it on his own and Snoop was willing to take the fall. If it is the latter, that's really good of him. If it is the former, it is till nice not to throw his employee under the bus, but he kind of did by putting him in that position in the first place.
