Snoop Dogg, the world's most chill weed advocate, is taking on the NFL's desire to have access to guns in a new Instagram video.
Snoop takes issue with the NFL wanting to give football players access to guns but not access to weed. He successfully argues that football is already a violent profession which lends itself to perpetuating a violent environment amongst the players, and that weed would be a panacea to this problem of violence and allow the players some respite from their aggressive environment.
He even reached out the NFL to offer his services as an advocate to make this change happen:
Do it, Snoop.
While presumably celebrating his arrival in Bogotá, Columbia, Snoop Dogg took a selfie and checked in to Bogata, a city in Romania. This gave Bogata a lot of attention from the internet crowd. If you're wondering what kind of place it is, someone has already capitalized on the publicity by making visitbogata.com and explaining
Someone has already capitalized on the new publicity by making visitbogata.com to explain everything the place has to offer. Interestingly enough, in addition to being super chill, Bogata is a place where industrial hemp is grown so they couldn't have had a better accidental celebrity endorsement.
As for the people who actually live there, they don't really care. According to the Balkan Insight, one villager just seemed a little confused about the situation:
I don’t know how this singer – whoever is he – could make such a mistake. Bogota is one thing, Bogata something different Ioan, a 61-year-old villager said, according to a report in Pressone.ro magazine.
We're not sure if you know this, but Snoop Dogg really likes marijuana.
So much so that he announced the launching of a new media platform from TechCrunch's Disrupt Conference Sept. 21.
D-O-double-G said the platform, called Merry Jane, will be many things, but most importantly a celebration of all things cannabis.
According to The Verge writing from Disrupt:
It sounds like the site will combine a traditional editorial voice with consumer-oriented features like a dispensary mapping service and a buying guide for marijuana-related products.
...The site doesn't officially open until October, but Snoop and Chung are giving 420 users per day — yes, really — access to its beta version until then. They've also shared an example of the kind of content they'll have on the site. Deflowered is a "groundbreaking interview series that will profile innovative people as they enjoy cannabis," and its first episode stars two former Marines talking about post-military life and alternative medicine. "After watching where the cannabis industry is headed, I wanted to create a platform that will take this movement further," said Snoop. "Merry Jane is a game-changing platform for pop culture."
Though the site is in beta, they're already released the first of the 'Deflowered' series on their YouTube channel featuring two former marines discussing how medical marijuana has helped them treat their PTSD.
In a breathtaking display of infinite maturity, here's the meme-ified back and forth between musicians Iggy Azalea and Snoop Dogg - with bonus commentary from Nick Young, Azalea's boyfriend. Luckily it's not like they aired their little spat publicly online where everyone can see what they've done and make fun of them for being a bunch of petulant babies.
UPDATE: Snoop has publicly apologized for this and much more egregious videos he's posted calling Azalea a number of unmentionable names. The real hero of the story? Tip, the King of Atlanta, AKA T.I., who helped Snoop come around on the matter.
