Snoop Dogg Banned From Norway For Marijuana Possession

One of Snoop Dogg's favorite vices will keep him out of Norway for two years.
Snoop Dogg's legendary penchant for smoking marijuana has now created difficulties for the West Coast rapper.
TMZ reports that Snoop has been barred from entering Norway for two years.
Last month, customs officers stopped Snoop, whom they discovered with eight grams of weed. Snoop was punished with a fine of just under $2,000 U.S.
Snoop's lawyer says the emcee "can live with the decision," and has no immediate plans to appeal it.
This isn't the first time Snoop has had trouble getting overseas. In 2007, Australia's immigration department expressed concerns about the rapper's criminal record and banned him, but lifted the ban in 2008.
