Aftenposten reports that Redman was caught carrying marijuana when he arrived at Oslo’s main airport this week in Norway, spent several hours in jail and clearly didn’t appreciate the police’s hospitality. It took Redman’s concert arrangers and lawyers six hours to spring him, because the amount of marijuana he was carrying exceeded the amount that local laws allow for personal use. Concert arranger Peer Osmundsvaag said that Redman also should be grateful for the goodwill of the authorities. “We got in touch with some sympathetic officials who realized that this wasn’t a smuggling case, and that cancellation of a concert for 1,300 people could create problems in town,” he said.
