It was a match bound for heartbreak: Sweden, where it is illegal to be high, and Snoop Dogg, who apparently appears in Swedish dictionaries next to the definition of "illegal," have parted ways permanently with the artist at times known as Snoop Lion saying he won't perform again in Sweden after he was detained under suspicion of being under the influence Saturday. Swedish police confirm the arrest, reports Mashable, but say the entire incident lasted only minutes. "Once the [urine] test was carried out he left," police spokesman Daniel Nilsson tells AFP. Nevertheless, Snoop released a series of videos during and after the arrest, and vowed never to return to the country. "On my way to the police station in Sweden," he says in one message. "All the fans in Sweden: I'll never be back to this country. Y'all can thank y'all police chief, and all the people that run y'all police department." (More Snoop Dogg stories.)
