Snoop Lion banned from Norway for drug possession

Snoop Lion, the US rapper formerly known as Snoop Dogg, has been banned from enteringNorway for two years after he was busted carrying drugs last month.
The rap star, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, was slapped with a 52,000 kroner ($8,600) fine after he attempted to enter the northern European country with eight grams of pot.
He was also caught carrying an illegal amount of cash.
The Press Association said the 40-year-old rapper was on his way to a music festival in the country’s south when sniffer dogs detected the marijuana in his luggage.
Holger Hagesaeter, Snoop's legal representative in Norway, said his client wasn’t too bothered by the ban, the Associated Press reported.
He “can live with the decision” and has no plans to appeal, Hagesaeter was quoted as saying.
Snoop recently changed his name to Snoop Lion as part of his image overhaul to become a reggae star.
Is this the reason Snoop appears to be making habit of getting busted for drug possession? In January, authorities in Texas said they found several joints on his tour bus.
Snoop would be wise to check his pockets before he headlines the two-day outdoor music festival Catalpa NYC this weekend.
