Snoop Dogg has been banned from Norway for two years after being detained for attempting to enter the country in possession of marijuana last month. The rapper, 40, apparently has ‘no immediate plans to appeal’.
His legal representative in Norway, Holger Hagesaeter said that Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, can ‘can live with the decision’. He certainly appears upbeat, and tweeted a few days ago: ‘positive. vibrations. all. around.’
It would appear that he isn’t too bothered about the prospect of being unable to perform to his Norwegian fans in their home country for such a long time. Snoop Dogg was detained in Norway last month after entering the country with marijuana and a large amount of cash, according to reports.
He 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. This is Snoop’s 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.
