The 40-year-old performer, who has been vocal and then some about his reefer madness, arrived at Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand with the contraband, and a sniffer dog detected the drug. The performer was also over the limit, carrying more cash, $37,352, than the country allows its visitors, $33,236.
Snoop was fined 52,000 kroners or $8,600 for the violations that he incurred.
The artist is scheduled to perform at the popular Hove Music Festival also in Kristiansand,
Snoop’s most-recent drug bust is his second this year. Back in January, Snoop, who has a “medical prescription” for cannabis in California, was not able to tote his “medication” in the good ole boy state of Texas. Police arrested him after a drug-sniffing canine discovered less than half an ounce of marijuana in a waste basket on his tour bus. The bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca.
The artist, songwriter, and producer was cited on a misdemeanor drug possession charge then set free.
In 2001, Snoop was again hit with a marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession charges in Cleveland, Ohio, when his tour bus was pulled over for speeding.
