Snoop Dogg Stopped For Pot Possession in Norway; World Gasps in Astonishment

by at . Comments

Norway didn't exactly roll out the red carpet for Snoop Dogg, stopping the rapper for pot possession. Fortunately, it didn't throw the book at him either.

Upon arriving at Oslo airport today in the country's capital, Snoop was held by customs after a canine unit sniffed out a small amount of marijuana.

Knock us over with a feather. This hasn't happened since ... January.

Lucky for Snoop, Norway marijuana laws are lax; up to 15 grams is generally considered personal use and punishable by a fine of 5000 kroner ($827).

So no criminal charges for the Doggfather, though he was also found to possess a large amount of cash exceeding legal limits and fined for that too.

Total penalties: 52,000 kroner, or $8,600, which he paid - he was carrying massive amounts of cash after all - and then was sent on his way.

Not a bad day for Norwegian customs officials or Snoop really.

Customs officers who stopped him told the news outlet that he was polite throughout and they were not aware of who he was until he showed ID.

Snoop Dogg, who was in Norway to perform as one of the headliners of the Hove Festival, was asked by VGTV why he was five hours late to the event.

"Man, shut the f--k up," he snapped, in big white shades emblazoned with his moniker. "I'm here… be happy I'm here and ask some real questions."

Point taken.
