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 Im talking about?'

Where there's smoke... The rapper, seen here in a Twitter picture, makes no secret of his addiction to marijuana
Snoop Dogg?? Not Snoop Dogg!! He would never —!
8 grams for Snoop? Wonder how much he had when the trip started.
I’d be shocked if they didn’t find any.
Snoop Dog is much more dependable that Justice Roberts. We know what Snoop Dog is up to.
Can the authorities also charge him with putting out crappy music?
In order not to be called a racist, I say, Lock him and Willie Nelson in the same cell and throw the key away.
That’s ok. He has a prescription.
For his public service sentence, he will make a new “lunch break in the park” video with a pack of Detroit union auto workers.
“Thats ok. He has a prescription.”
For his Chronic condition...
and this is supposed to be news? it’s right up there with an announcement that the TSA confiscated 20 tubes of Lotrimin from Dick Morris’s luggage.
His bro Obama will save him!!
8 grams isn’t even a dime bag.
They took his stash then they took his cash. Snoop is the president of “Potheads chronically for Obama”
