Ironically, the video kicks off with the TikTok star smoking a joint with Cheech and Chong and a police officer.
Why Was Doggface Arrested for Weed?
The story of Doggface arrested for weed is as follows:
Doggface was driving in his home state of Idaho when state police pulled him over for an expired registration tag on his vehicle. The officer allegedly saw edibles in the glovebox of Doggface’s Chevy Silverado and decided to conduct a search. The search turned up three packages of THC gummies and a dab scraping tool with sticky residue.
Doggface arrested for weed and charged with two misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked and released several hours later on $600 bond.
Things Weren’t What They Seemed
Although the incidents surrounding Doggface arrested for weed don’t sound too unusual, the TikToker claims that things didn’t go down as the police reported. Apocada claims that the police originally told him they were just going to write him a ticket. But things quickly escalated.
Here’s what he revealed in regarding the Doggface arrested for weed incident during an interview with TMZ.
“They found a gun and told me I was under arrest because I had a felony on my record, and I wasn’t allowed to possess a firearm.
“However, I do not have a felony on my record, which I told the officers.
“Despite me telling them this, I was taken into custody. I was held in jail for several hours without bond before they told me they made a huge mistake.
“Then I was told I was only being held on the weed charge and could bond out.”
What are Idaho Weed Laws?
In Idaho, possessing three ounces of weed or less is considered a misdemeanor and is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1000. Possession of more than 3 ounces but less than a pound of weed is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Advocates are pushing to legalize medical cannabis in the state. If cannabis is legalized, punishment for possession would not be as strict. There have been several efforts to legalize cannabis in Idaho in the past, but none have been successful.
Currently, an organization called Kind Idaho is collecting signatures and say they now have enough to put medical cannabis on the ballot for 2024. “We want the opportunity for Idaho residents to succeed on their own terms. And for many of those people, the best solution in medical marijuana,” said Kind Idaho Treasurer Joe Evans.
