Rapper Snoop Dogg has been banned from entering Norway for two years after allegedly trying to smuggle marijuana into the country in June.

The Gin and Juice hitmaker was stopped by officials at Kristiansand Airport in Kjevik, where he was allegedly caught carrying eight grams of weed.

Snoop Dogg, a longtime advocate of the drug, was fined $2,000 at the time of the offence and was allowed entry into the country, where he had been booked to perform at the Hovefestivalen event.

However, Norwegian officials have since barred the star from returning.

The musician's lawyer reveals Snoop has no immediate plans to appeal the ruling, insisting he "can live with the decision".
