Drew Magary recently went out to L.A. to interview Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion (whatever he's going by these days) for GQ. The profile, which is featured in magazine's January 2013 issue, hit the web today. Go read it over at GQ. As a super kushy og taste, I've excerpted the dankest, greenest, sticky-icky-ickiest parts of the interview. You know, that parts about Snoop straight up lovin' the Mary Jane. We're talking about the WEED, braaaaaahs:
On generously giving weed to a homeless dude:
These guys were asking me for food the other day, so I bought them lunch. And then I said, 'Let me take a picture of you guys,' because I wanted people to see that we were doing a good deed. And then the one guy goes, 'I smell that Snoop Dogg [i.e., weed] on you. I partake in all things Snoop Dogg.' And I go, 'Well, it's Snoop Lion now,' and I went to my car and I had some weed, so I said, 'There ya go, you go enjoy that.' And he looked at it and said, 'I knew I smelled that Snoop on you.' And I was like, 'You guys have to share that.'
On introducing his kids to gettin' high:
“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 shit or overdose or trying some shit that ain’t clean.”
On keeping things holistic:
"It's from the earth—it's not some man-made shit," he says to me at one point. "It's actually growing from the ground straight to you, so it's just like eating a vegetable. You know what I'm saying? Cancer and diseases that never had a cure, now all of a sudden you got people taking chemotherapy, and they're also having a toke, and they live longer."
