George Hotz aka Geohot was arrested in Texas after police found him in possession of Marijuana. He was headed to the annual SXSW conference.

Now, most of you may know Geohot; he’s the guy that hacked the PS3 and of course, jailbroke the iPhone in 2008. He is a successful guy and used to work for Google.

He joined Facebook after the PS3 fiasco and currently works there.

He apparently has a medical license in California, according to sources of Sniffer dogs near a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca alerted the cops and he was booked for felony and posted $1500 bail.

He had 1/4 oz. of marijuana and chocolate edibles of 1/8 oz. in his possession. The chocolates were valued at $800 and not $15 as Hotz said to the cops.

Sony has barred him from ever touching their products again. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

    Live’s in the wrong country I guess. 1/4oz (about 7g) worth of MJ here in Canada won’t get you anything but a fine. Up to 15g (little over 1/2oz) as long as it’s not individually packaged for sale only gets you a fine. After than you can be held criminally responsible and charged.

    Depends on which state you live in Jackie. Texas is by far one of the worst to be caught with bud.

  • Texas Law

    O-2oz = misdemeanor
    2oz+ can be charged as a felony distribution
    I dont know if transporting it factors into the less than 2oz charge. But the charges seem like BS.

    And those prices are so out of wack how can an 8th of any drug be = $800
