Fiona Apple the latest musician busted for pot in small Texas town9/20/2012
Singer Fiona Apple has been enjoying a comeback after a years-long hiatus from the music world. But authorities in the small town of Sierra Blanca, Texas, have put a temporary end to her good times after she was arrested for possession of marijuana and hashish. As it just so happens, the town of Sierra Blanca is also where celebrities like Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg – sorry, Snoop Lion – were busted on similar charges. So why don't people avoid this town? Well, it sits on Interstate 10, pretty much the only way to get across the vast openness of western Texas. So unless these performers want a serious detour, it's probably a good idea to hide an allegedly illegal substances hanging out on the tour bus. [Source]
