Snoop Dogg banned from Norway

American rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Norway for two years after trying to enter the country with marijuana

American rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Norway for two years after trying to enter the country with a small amount of marijuana last month.

Holger Hagesaeter, the star's legal representative in Norway, said that his client "can live with the decision" and has no immediate plans to appeal.

Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was on his way to a music festival in southern Norway in June when sniffer dogs detected 0.3oz (8g) of marijuana in his luggage.

He was also carrying more cash than is legally allowed and was fined 52,000 kroner (£5,500) after admitting the two offences, the lawyer said.
