How Did Snoop Dogg Start Smoking Marijuana?
Snoop Dogg loves to consume recreational marijuana. He has been doing so since childhood. He told in an interview with Esquire, “The first time I got high off marijuana was in the seventies, with one of my uncles. They had these little roaches on the table, these part-way-smoked marijuana cigarettes, and there was some Schlitz Malt Liquor Bull. I went in there and sipped the Schlitz, and my uncle asked me did I wanna hit that roach. And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He put it on the roach clip for me and lit it up, and I hit that motherfucker. I was about eight or nine years old.”
Snoop has tried quitting weed earlier also. Once in 2002, he announced his decision. But for the ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot‘ hitmaker, “Weed: It makes me feel the way I need to feel.”
Explaining his reasons for trying to quit smoking again, he explained to The Daily Mail, “Being a grandfather has changed me in multiple ways. The main way is being concerned with how I live, how I move, the kind of people I’m associated with, because I want to see my grandkids grow old. The only way I can do that is to take precautionary steps as far as how I move, who I hang out with, where I go out, my intake, what am I intaking? … I just don’t want to do this to my body anymore. I want to survive.”
So, what exactly does Snoop Dogg’s post mean this time? Let’s wait and see.
