Arresting Snoop Dogg for possessing marijuana is akin to tossing the Hamburglar into the hoosegow for stealing hamburgers. Everyone and their glaucoma-stricken auntie knows that these guys are breaking the law, but that’s what we love about them. However, Norway must have a thing against the rapper/actor’s undying love of the toke, as they detained the D-O-Double G after entering the country with a fat sack and a large sum of money.

Since Norwegian law prevents authorities from readily handing out information about suspects to anyone who asks, the customs department refused to decline on the matter. However, an anonymous official told the Associated Press that Snoop “Calvin Broadus” Dogg was, in fact, carrying medicine bottles containing the illegal substance, as well as more cash than is allowed by law. As a direct result of these violations, the rapper was forced to pay a $8,600 fine.

Since Snoop cooperated with police in the matter and coughed up the money for the charges, the case is now considered closed.

Anyone that’s aware of Snoop Dogg’s music, lifestyle, and reputation aren’t very surprised that the rapper got pinched for marijuana possession. Because the shock factor is pretty low for this story, a fair amount of sarcasm and snark has been spiraling through Twitter like so much exhaled pot smoke. Take a look at what people think about the guy’s arrest below.

    Let’s keep celebrities and everyday citizens from crowding our courts and jails contributing to the money pit that is the War on Pot. When will our Government realize it can profit more from taxing the sale of the harmless medicinal herb than by jailing people for it? Groups are organizing all over the country to speak their minds on reforming pot laws and defending this plant. I drew up a very cool poster for the cause which you can check out on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/01/vote-teapot-2011.html Drop in and let me know what you think!

    Hey apprently snoop dog should not be carrying any drugs of ANY KIND INDLOMakeeps

    Why does he carry drugs of any sort. According to the past he was arrested before in Norway and continues to flaunt their laws. SO the only thing to do is let him enjoy Norway prison for about a year, depending ao how much he had. Hey snoops enjoy the meals that they serve.

    I thought that marijuana was legal in Norway. Well, now I know I have to smoke all of mine before going there on vacation. Thanks DOGG.

    Get a grip people. Marijuana is only called a drug because our government wants to call it a drug. No matter how you spell it, how you look at it, or how you feel about it, marijuana is NOT a drug. It is a NORTH AMERICAN WILDFLOWER that someone chose to smoke instead of eat. ANd it is a wildflower that we have been told we cannot replant. Why, GOD made it and we should be able to reap anything that we choose. Some grow corn and government helps them when they lose crops. Why don’t the government get their heads out of their asses and leave marijuana alone. There are far worse things we need taken care of that never get a page on the news.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
