Snoop Dogg Detained for Marijuana Possession in Norway

Norwegian media are reporting that Snoop Dogg was briefly detained in Norway after entering the country with marijuana and a large amount of cash.

Customs officials decline to confirm the report, saying only that an American artist entered Norway with a small amount of marijuana that was detected by a sniffer-dog. Norwegian law prevents law enforcement officials from naming suspects.

A customs officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said Thursday that the artist was also 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.

    As a musician pot use can make an artist more creative. Harper idolizes the Beatles who wrote & performed under the influence as did many other great musicians over the years. It wouldn’t hurt his music either.
    Stephen Harper. Light’n up!
