Snoop Dogg

0728_snoop_dogg_tmzSnoop Dogg has been barred from entering Norway for two years and you're never going to be able to guess why!!!! Nevermind, you probably can. 

The rapper's lawyer says the ban came down when Snoop tried to enter the country last month with a small amount of marijuana. The lawyer says Snoop "can live with the decision" and has no immediate plans to appeal it.

Snoop was stopped at customs at the Kjevic Airport in Kristiansand on June 28 where officials discovered 8 grams of weed. He was fined a little less than $2,000 and paid it on the spot.

Blows me away when I think of how much Snoop has accomplished -this is a dude who's invented his own damn language -then got the entire country/half-the-world speaking it - you can't do better than that.

The black community - the rap and hip-hop dudes - Snoop, et al - what they've done defies description and imagination. Inventing a GENRE?! /What with all of the objections and road blocks of/by White America?! Try doing that sometime...My hat is so off to Snoop and to Black America...

really! really?    

Norway just became a far more attractive travel destination. No beef with Snoop, the artist, but people brazen enough to carry drugs on International flights are scary.

So, that's three European countries he's banned from now? Or are there more I have forgotten? Hopefully he'll remember to leave the weed at home if he ever travels to Asia - or it could be years before he leaves Asia.

They can ban snoop for something small like weed but allow criminals to live it up in jail?

The weed isn't why he was banned. He carried more than $50.000 and didn't declare it, and he had earlier felonies in Norway.
