Snoop Dogg Is Officially Banned From Norway

When Snoop Dogg was caught with weed last month--in Norway of all places--the famous rapper and rolling papers entrepreneur coughed up around 1,000 U.S. dollars to cover the fine for the misdemeanor charge. At the time, the arrest did not seem to be a particularly big deal, and it was assumed that would be all we would ever hear about the situation, but as it turns out, Snoop Doggís punishment has turned into a situation that is slightly more severe than what was initially thought.
Despite having pretty lax marijuana laws in Norway, the country does not seem particularly keen on the plantís biggest proponent returning to spread the love for cannabis. On Saturday, TMZ reported Snoop-a-loop is no longer allowed to enter Norway for a time period of two years. Snoopís lawyers have said the 40-year-old has no plans to appeal the punishment, and it is easy to see why.
Snoop was only in the country last month for a random music festival, and unless he gets invited back to that same music festival, I canít imagine another reason to become a patron of Norway, unless he gets super excited about oil production or subsidized education. Still, maybe the ban will be a bit of a warning for the man to have his drugs travel separately from his person. Two arrests in one year is a bit of ridiculous record for someone who is old enough to know better.
