Rapper and How High film star Redman was held by customs in Norway this week when sniffer dogs detected marijuana on his person.
The notoriously stoned rap star was on route to Oslo from Amsterdam where possession of the drug is legal.
He was detained by Oslo staff who claimed the quantity in his possession was above the personal amount that is legal in their city.
However, 1,300 Oslo fans awaited the star at the city's Rockefeller nightclub and were told by bouncers that he may not make it to the sold-out gig.
After six hours of negotiation between Redman's lawyers, the promoters of the gig and Oslo authorities the rapper was able to play the show.
"We got in touch with some sympathetic officials who realised that this wasn't a smuggling case, and that cancellation of a concert for 1,300 people could create problems in town," said promoter Peer Osmundsvaag.
When Redman finally reached the stage he unleashed a torrent of vitriol aimed at the Norwegian authorities and, reportedly, a fine performance.
