Pot may be legal in many states but it's not in Texas, (and, sadly, probably won't be for quite a while), these stars all found that out the hard way. A couple in El Paso.

Rock stars and drugs go hand in hand. They don't all get high but a lot of 'em do and Johnny Law doesn't like that.

Here are some rockers, rappers and country artists who ran afoul of drug laws in Texas with a few that got popped here, (or near), El Chuco.

Localy, semi - locally and across the state, Boys will be boys ... and sometimes the ladies too.

Who Was Arrested For Drugs In El Paso?

We'll start with the guys that got busted in El Paso. Johnny Cash was coming back from Juarez in 1965 when the man found a ton of pills in his guitar case.

When I say a ton, I'm not exaggerating ... he had 668 Dexadrine's and 473 Equani tablets in there. Adding insult to injury, an El Paso sheriff later tried to blackmail him.

Next up, in 2011, rappers Paul Wall and Baby Bash spent a minute in the El Chuco hoosegow for having marijuana in a "no drug zone". (Isn't the whole state a no drug zone??)

Who Was Arrested Near El Paso?

The Border Patrol checkpoint near Sierra Blanca, about 90 miles from El Paso, has racked up quite a guest list for the local clink.

It includes Fiona Apple, Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson. Snoop and Willie for possession of pot? There's some detective work for you ...

PICTURES: See Inside Willie Nelson's Historic $2.5 Million Rural Retreat

Willie Nelson's former home in Nashville is on the market for $2.5 million, and pictures show a splendid rural retreat that's a true piece of country music history.

Nelson's 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom hand-built log cabin, which the country music icon built for himself, sits on 150 rolling rural acres in Goodlettsville, Tenn., just half an hour outside of Nashville. The land surrounding the cabin offers a breathtaking slice of unspoiled Tennessee and ensures maximum quiet and privacy.
