Rapper and well-known marijuana advocate Snoop Dogg was detained in Norway Thursday after he was discovered to be carrying pot into the country.


Norwegian Customs officials would not confirm Snoop's identity, but did say an "American artist" was busted by a drug-sniffing dog for trying to enter the country with marijuana.


According to the New York Post, that "American artist" was Snoop, and he was also carrying more cash than was legally permitted. Because of that violation, he was fined about $8,600. He was briefly detained during the incident.


Snoop Dogg, who has a checkered past with drug possession charges, was likely on his way to a scheduled performance in the Norwegian town of Kristiansand.
