Reggae Stars Busted for Drug Use?
Police in the Swedish city of Uppsala say several musicians involved in this year's Uppsala Reggae Festival have been arrested in a drug bust. Police spokesperson Christer Nordstrom said several of the festival artists were involved when police obtained blood samples from nearly 50 individuals suspected of drug offenses this week.
Some of the artist that performed at this concert included, Sean Paul, Derrick Morgan, Tarrus Riley, Queen Ifrica, Luciano, Beenie Man and Irie Love to name a few.
TMZ has reported that Sean Paul was brought from the huge Uppsala Reggae Festival to a local police station on suspicion of possessing narcotics. It was also stated that r 200-300 people also were brought in from the Fest this weekend, also on drug-related charges.
Now why do Reggae artist feel they can go and smoke a doobie in someone else's country? I feel "all" of them went down there for questioning.
