OSLO, Norway — A lawyer representing Snoop Dogg said the American rapper has been banned from entering Norway for two years after trying to enter the country with a small amount of marijuana last month.

Lawyer Holger Hagesaeter, said Saturday that his client “can live with the decision” and has no immediate plans to appeal it.

Snoop Dogg, whose name is Calvin Broadus, was on his way to a music festival in southern Norway in June when sniffer dogs detected eight grams of marijuana in his luggage. He was also carrying more cash than is legally allowed and was fined $8,600 after admitting to the offenses, the lawyer said.
