West Coast rap veteran Snoop “Dogg” Lion recently discussed his infatuation with marijuana and why despite the impression it could make, he would love to show people the right way to smoke the sticky icky.
In Snoop’s perspective, his intention to give lessons on marijuana usage could help serve a big cause and even be life-saving.
In Snoop’s Narnia, it’s perfectly acceptable to look forward to teaching your kids how to pick seeds out of your stash or how to roll a blunt. “It’s not that I would ever push weed on our kids,” says Snoop, who has three children, ranging in age from 12 to 18, “but if they wanted to, I would love to show them how, the right way, so that way they won’t get nothing put in their sh*t or overdose or trying some sh*t that ain’t clean.” (GQ)
Recently, Snoop talked about not forcing his kids to steer clear of weed.
“My kids can do whatever the h*ll they want. For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf*ckers don’t have a relationship with their kids, and that’s when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I’m his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me. What better way to get it than from the master?” (The Hollywood Reporter)
He also gave his take on why its legalization could be a positive thing in the United States.
“There would be less high-speed chases, less robberies, less crime [if marijuana was legalized]. Go to Amsterdam or the Netherlands where it is legal and you see that the crime rate is nonexistent, the murder rate is probably under 10 percent, people learn to get along! There are people riding on bicycles being happy and it’s because of the environment that’s provided by the legalization of marijuana.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
Snoop’s partner in rhymes Wiz Khalifa discussed raising a son in a house which welcomes marijuana.
“I think it’s all about how you’re raised with it,” the Rolling Papers rapper said. “Before there was a much more negative outtake on it. You know, pot and what it can do, and the effects of it. Of course. I’m not going to be smoking right there over the baby, because smoke in general and being high is not good for a kid. None of that. But definitely he’s going to know what it is–and he’ll know the difference between being a child and not being able to use it and being an adult and knowing how to use it.” (E! Online)
