Snoop Dogg had publicly announced that he was quitting smoking marijuana “after serious discussion and reflection with my family.” In a brief statement, Snoop Doggy Dog asked the public to respect his privacy at that time. It was all an advertising strategy by Snoop Dogg to promote a smokeless stove for next Christmas. This is the announcement:

Snoop Doggy Dogg started smoking marijuana regularly in high school, when he was a teenager, although the first time he took a drag on a cigarette out of laughter was in the 70s, when he was just eight years old, and his uncle gave him a try. Of course, Snoop Doggy Dogg has been associated with cannabis culture his entire career, and the image of Snoopy holding a joint in his hand is iconic.
Throughout his career, Snoop has exploited his passion for weed in a variety of ways. In 2012 he published a smokable book. In 2015 he launched his own cannabis brand. On April 20, the designated date, Snoop Dogg and Bebe Rexha released a joint single dedicated to the act of smoking.
Snoopy Doggy Dogg’s marijuana possession has landed the artist in trouble with the law on several occasions. In 2015, Snoop was arrested twice during a tour in Europe. Previously, in 2012, he almost ended up in prison in Texas after a police dog found three bottles full of marijuana cigarettes, which Snoop recognized were his property.
Nothing stopped Snoop Doggy Dogg from making public, in 2019, that he had a hired employee at his house to roll his joints. The luckiest person in the world would earn between 40,000 and 50,000 dollars a year to make things happen for the rapper.
