Snoop Dogg was arrested in Sweden on Saturday night on suspicion of using illegal substances but was later released after taking a urine test. 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 was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test.’’ 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 spokesman added: “The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left.’’
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’’.
He said: “It’s not that I would ever push weed on our kids. But if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won’t get nothing put in their s****t or overdose or trying some shit that ain’t clean.
