Allegedly unable to “confirm or deny” Snoop Lion's smoking of dagga during his recent performance in Ellis Park, Johannesburg, concert organizers left local authorities more than a little miffed by the their tolerance of his flagrant disregard for city and state ordinances. The concert itself was a huge success, however, and little is likely to come of the scrutiny.

Johannesburg - Snoop Lion ignored a metro police warning and allegedly smoked dagga on stage at the Standard Bank Arena, in Ellis Park, Johannesburg, the New Age reported on Tuesday.

According to the newspaper, the Johannesburg metro police warned that anyone found in possession of drugs would be arrested, after reports that the US artist smoked dagga during his show at the Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban on Saturday.

Concert organisers, G and G Events, told the newspaper it could not confirm or deny what Snoop Lion had been smoking.
