Throughout his career, Snoop Dogg has been an enthusiastic backer of cannabis and cannabis reform. He rapped about consuming cannabis in many of his songs. Furthermore, he appeared in the cannabis comedy classic “Half Baked” as a stoner who only comes around when there’s weed and then smokes all of it, much to the dismay of the other characters. He has appeared in other movies where he references smoking weed in a positive manner.
Snoop Dogg has also ventured a bit into the legal industry himself.
Jersey City is a hotbed of cannabis activity.
