Snoop Dogg busted in Norway with marijuana, cash

By Associated Press

OSLO, 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.

The rapper, whose name is Calvin Broadus, has in the past been arrested on marijuana possession.

Far more than warranted. Detaining someone for carrying too much money? The guy is rich. What do you expect? Marijuana should be legalized by now. It's only illegal because the tobacco companies see it as a threat to their business, and use their billion$$ to lobby Congress against hemp.
