LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Snoop Dogg is banned from Norway for two years, officials told news today. Snoop Dogg made news in Norway back in June after the rapper was detained in customs. Officials then determined that Snoop Dogg was attempted to transport eight grams of marijuana through Norway’s customs. He was also reportedly in possession of 227,0000 Norwegian kroner at the time.
Norway allows possession of a small amount of the substance. But Norway officials claim the rapper exceeded that substance limit and also the currency limit.
Snoop Dogg was previously arrested in Sweden in 2007, and detained in Oslo last October for possession of cash beyond the customs’ limits. Previously, Snoop Dogg was banned for England for weapons charges, a ban that was lifted in 2010 as well.
Now, the rappers’ lawyers confirm that he has been banned for Norway for two years because of the substance and currency limits. The rapper will not appeal the matter. His local attorney Holger Hagesaeter tells news that Snoop Dogg “can live with the decision”.
