Looks Like Snoop Dogg Won’t Be Visiting Norway Any Time Soon

The rapper has been banned from entering the country for two years.

Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Norway for two years after he was found with a small amount of marijuana in Kjevik airport last month.

The rapper was fined 52,000kr (€6148) for entering the country with eight grams of marijuana. Despite the find, Norwegian police allowed Snoop to appear at Hovefestivalen music festival as planned.

The Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper tweeted throughout the gig about his drug use.

“Smoking crip n. cuzna,” he wrote.


According to The Associated Press, Snoop has been barred from returning to the country for 24 months.

The rapper’s lawyer Holger Hagesaeter said Snoop will not be appealing the decision.

“[Snoop] can live with the decision,” he said

The California Gurl collaborator has regular run-ins with the law and until 2010 was regularly refused visas for tours of the UK.

The rapper is not a one trick pony either and is set to release his first reggae album later this year under the name Snoop Lion.
