Snoop Dogg arrested in Sweden, vows never to go back.

Snoop Dogg has accused Swedish police of racial profiling after he was stopped and briefly detained in the town of Uppsala on suspicion of possessing marijuana.

The ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ hitmaker was pulled over and taken into a police station where he was forced to take a urine test following his show in Copenhagen as officers believed he had been using illegal drugs Daniel Nilsson – police spokesman for the Uppsala region – said in a statement: “Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg (whose car was pulled over) seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He later posted another video telling the camera he was in the back of a police car saying “taking us to the station, where I gotta go pee in the cup, for nothing!” The entire incident is only believed to have lasted “several minutes” as the test results were not immediately available, meaning he has been released while testing is carried out.

The 43-year-old rapper has been open about his personal drug use in the past and is a keen advocate of cannabis, which he is legally allowed to use to treat migraines in California. And in 2013, Snoop confessed to smoking up to 80 cannabis blunts per day, adding he would “love” to show his kids Cordé, 20, Cordell, 18 and Cori, 16, how to smoke the substance “the right way”.

In one of the clips, he said: “On my way to the police station in Sweden, sorry about that, all the fans in Sweden, I’ll never be back in this country. The ‘Peaches n Cream’ hitmaker also accused the police of only pulling him over due to the colour of his skin and claimed he was “snatched” out of his car. In July 2012, he was banned from entering Norway for two years after being found in possession of eight grams of marijuana, as well nearly £18,000 of Norwegian currency. Swedish Idol judge Alexander Bard said the arrest was not racial profiling, but related to the Swedish authorities’ pursuit of celebrities. “This arrest was not racial profiling, which is an American [phenomenon] not a Swedish phenomenon. But it was clearly a case of celebrity profiling,” he told Billboard. “The Swedish police are losing the ridiculous battle called the War on Drugs as much in Sweden as anywhere else at the moment, and they have clearly now gone into desperate hypergear by chasing celebrities over drug use to grab media headlines, and thereby hoping to retake the initiative in this prestigious generational battle.”
