Snoop Dogg Detained of Marijuana Possession in Norway


European visit: Snoop Dogg signed autographs for fans in Copenhagen, Denmark, yesterday. He was today detained at an airport in Norway

Snoop Dogg was detained in Norway after entering the country with marijuana and a large amount of cash, according to reports.

The rapper, 40, allegedly arrived Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand with around eight grams of the drug which was detected by a sniffer-dog.

A customs officer also said the artist was carrying more cash than is legally allowed and was subsequently fined 52,000 kroner ($8,600) for the violations.

Snoop Dogg was scheduled to perform Thursday at a musical festival in the southern town of Kristiansand.

It was his second drug bust this year alone – in January he was arrested in Sierra Blanca, Texas after his transport was stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint.

Snoop has a long history of legal problems, including a 1993 murder charge, from which he was eventually acquitted, numerous convictions for marijuana possession and in 2007 he was given a given a three-year suspended sentence after pleading no contest to possessing a gun and drugs.

Earlier this year he announced he wanted to speak to Barack Obama in a smoky room so he could ask him to legalise his favourite drug.

In an interview on Hot 99.5 he said: ‘Before I even said “Hi” to President Obama, I would change the aroma of the room.

And then we could start conversing after we had that aroma change. You know what I’m talking about?
