Local police in Uppsala, north of Stockholm, have decided to drop the drug-related charges against rapper Snoop Dogg.

Local police pulled over Snoop Dogg after a concert in Sweden last summer and forced the rapper to take a drug test. The initial test suggested that he was under the influence and this Thursday, several months later, a lab test confirmed that the urine sample was positive.

Police, however, have decided to drop the case, because they can not prove that Snoop Dogg used any narcotics on Swedish territory.

"We can't prove beyond reasonable doubt that he used drugs in Sweden with the sample that we got," Magnus Hänström, at the Uppsala police, tells Swedish Radio News.

While in police custody, Snoop Dogg posted several videos on social media claiming that he had been subject to racial profiling and he vowed never to return to Sweden.

"To all my Sweden fans you can blame your police department for never seeing me again in your beautiful country", the rapper wrote on Twitter.
